The battery functions and remains intact, according to the company

Recently, several videos have surfaced on social media showing an Ola electric scooter catching fire in Pune. The incident occurred on Saturday near the parking lot of D.Y Patil College in Pimpri Chinchwad, when an Ola S1 Pro caught fire. The videos showed smoke coming out of the burning scooter as the fire brigade team used a water hose to control the blaze.

In response to the video, Ola has claimed that the incident was caused by an aftermarket part used in the scooter. However, the company has confirmed that the battery of the scooter is still intact and functional. Thankfully, the customer involved in the incident was safe and unharmed.

We received a report of an incident involving one of our scooters in Pune yesterday. Fortunately, the customer was safe and unharmed. Our investigation revealed that the use of aftermarket parts in the scooter caused a short circuit, which led to the incident. The company released a statement regarding the matter on X.

Ola reminded their customers to use only authentic spare parts and accessories for all services. Also added that, “we have confirmed that the battery of the vehicle is working well. At Ola, safety is our top priority and we follow strict standards for vehicle safety and quality. We strongly recommend using only genuine spare parts and accessories for any service needs. If you need support, please contact us online or visit the nearest Ola Experience Centre.” 


There have been numerous incidents of electric two-wheelers catching fire across the country, leading to manufacturers recalling their vehicles. A few months ago, an Ola Electric S1 Pro that was parked caught fire in Thiruvananthapuram.

In March 2022, an Ola S1 Pro scooter caught fire in the Dhanori area of Pune, India. As a result of the incident, Ola Electric recalled 1,441 units of its electric two-wheelers. As a result of a series of fire incidents involving electric vehicles, the government is currently forming a panel to examine the matter and to warn companies that any negligence will result in penalties.
