But the only drawback is Ola comes with an MNC battery and Ampere has LFP(lithium ferro phosphate). LFP chemistry battery’s thermal management system is very good. So, it gives safety from catching fire incidents.

Vice versa, The design of Ampere scooter is better than Ola.  Because Ampere’s design is similar to a conventional ICE engine scooter.
