Indian electric two-wheeler maker Ola Electric is delaying the delivery of the first batch of its electric scooters by a month due to a shortage of semiconductors and electronic parts, the Business Standard reported, citing unidentified company executives.

Ola Electric was scheduled to deliver its first batch of e-scooters by November 30, but the company decided to delay them following a meeting between its factory team and the global supply chain on Saturday, the report said.

Ola, which started accepting bookings for its Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro on September 15, had reported sales of 1,100 crore rupees (around $147 million) over the first two days.
