Authorities registration information signifies that the variety of clients who obtained scooters within the 17-day December supply window is way decrease than the 4,000 scooters that Ola claims to have despatched.
On the final day of its December supply window, Ola Electrical’s CEO Bhavish Aggarwal took to Twitter to announce that the corporate had despatched scooters to all those that have been promised a supply in December. In an official assertion later, the corporate’s chief enterprise officer Arun Sirdeshmukh confirmed that it had shipped virtually 4,000 scooters in December.
Since Ola shouldn’t be part of Society of Indian Vehicle Producers (SIAM), its numbers should not listed as a part of SIAM’s month-to-month gross sales figures, so we’ll must take their phrase on the variety of despatches.
Nevertheless, information accessible on the central authorities’s Vahan portal reveals that simply 238 Ola Electrical scooters have been registered in December. This database comprises car registration information for all of the states and Union Territories in India – with the one exceptions being Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
Even after taking these exceptions into consideration, the variety of registered scooters is a small fraction of the claimed variety of despatches. And since a scooter can’t be delivered till it’s registered, it seems that the lion’s share of consumers who have been promised supply within the December 15-31 window have did not obtain it on time.
Clearly, Ola’s doorstep supply mannequin appears to be operating into obstacles, with Bhavish Aggarwal claiming that the registration course of is taking longer than anticipated.
Within the midst of all this, Aggarwal has introduced that the subsequent buy window for the scooters will open very quickly.
