Ola Electric may unveil a new colour scheme for their scooters on Independence day. While confirmation and details of the development are still awaited, the company’s CEO Bhavish Aggarwal in a tweet on Sunday said that Ola Electric will be unveiling their “greenest EV” on August 15. Speculations are rife that the electric two-wheeler manufacturer is likely to unveil an updated green colour option for its S1 Pro Electric scooters. Previously, Ola had introduced a Gerua colour option for the scooter during the festival of Holi this year.

“On 15th August, we’ll be revealing the greenest EV we’ve made! Any guesses?” Bhavish Aggarwal wrote while posting a teaser clip on Twitter. The clip showed a forest through which emerged the silhouette of a scooter. “The Greenest Scooter Just Got Greener,” appears a text on the video hinting that the EV scooter may be launched in a new colour variant on Independence 2022, which also marks the one-year anniversary of its launch.
