Bengaluru-based startup Ola Electric aims to open 500 showrooms by March 2023. Currently, the company has 200 operational showrooms across India and this target effectively means increasing Ola’s showroom count by around 150%.
Ola Electric, once a strong proponent of the digital-only sales model, now plans to open 300 more showrooms in India in the next two months. This expansion is not only targeted at metro cities, but also at Tier III and IV cities as well as towns and rural areas.
Although customers can test drive the scooter at these showrooms, they will still have to purchase it through the Ola app. However, the showrooms will also provide maintenance and service facilities.
