Ola boss Bhavish Aggarwal got into a feisty Twitter exchange with a user on Tuesday after the latter called out OlaElectric over deep battery discharge of his S1Pro e-bike.

"Tried powering up my S1 Pro yesterday. NOTHING happened! Called the Ola rep who sent a truck pronto to pick up my dead scooter. Shocking that a scooter less than 2months old &under 100km on odo should pack up like this. Smacks of the lax quality culture that plagues @OlaElectric," Hormazd Sorabjee, a user -who is also an editor of a leading auto magazine - wrote on the microblogging website.

Replying to Sorabjee, the Ola CEO wrote: "Hormazd, while your tweet smacks of a strong bias, glad our service team solved this same day for you. Let’s see how many brands able to do this at scale. We’ve upgraded you to MoveOS 2 which solves the specific issue. Enjoy, commit to #EndICEage and don’t be afraid of change!!"

OlaElectric has find itself amid a row over fire incidents that triggered an uproar on social media and an investigation by the government.

The company, backed by Japan's SoftBank Group, has recalled more than 1,400 e-scooters and appointed external experts to investigate the cause.

Earlier this month, Aggarwal announced purchase window for Ola's electric scooters S1, S1Pro will open on May 21.
