This is based on the numbers put out on the Vahaan database. According to the database, Ola Electric and Ather saw their respective volumes dip by 71 percent and 38.34 percent respectively.

Major EV makers including Ola, Okinawa, Pure Electric, and a few others have been issued notice by MORTH (Ministry of Road Transport Highways) and The Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA), as to why relevant sections of the (Motor vehicles and Consumer Protection Act) should not be invoked over customer concerns and complaints regarding a series of EV fires that have created a question mark on the safety of such scooters.
