Ola S1 launched

Ola has launched its much-awaited S1 and S1 Pro electric scooter models.

Available in ten colours in satin, matte and glossy finishes, Ola S1 comes with iconic twin headlamps, ergonomic and fluidic body, superior alloy wheels, sculpted seating, and large boot space that fits two helmets.

The electric scooter model is said to be setting new industry benchmarks with a range of 181 Kms, acceleration of 0-40 kmph in 3.0 seconds, and a top speed of 115 kmph. It has a 3.97kWh of battery capacity and boasts being the most powerful motor in the category with 8.5 KW of peak power.

Ola S1 also comes with a proprietary battery management system (BMS) which monitors the battery for optimal durability, performance, range, and safety.

S1 has no physical key and pairs with the phone with its “digital key” feature. This enables it to know when you are near to it and unlock automatically. It will also lock itself as you move away. It has a multi-microphone array, AI speech recognition algorithms that have been built in-house, and a seven-inch touchscreen display.

The homegrown MoveOS will allow customers to alter the way the scooter sounds in addition to changing the look and feel of the display.

Safety features include an anti-theft alert system, geo-fencing, and a battery that is flame-retardant and water and dust resistant. It also has front and rear disc brakes and a ‘Hill Hold’ feature which makes riding in traffic and navigating inclines easy.

Bhavish Aggarwal, co-founder, and CEO at Ola tweeted, “Introducing the Ola S1! Best performance, best technology, and the best design; all that made in India, for the world!”

Ola S1 starts at ₹99,999 and the S1 Pro starts at ₹1,29,999.

Ola S1 will be officially available for purchase from September 8, 2021, and will be delivered across 1,000 cities and towns in October. Until then, Ola S1 is available for reservation at just ₹499.
