Ola Electric has revealed its new electric scooters in India. The scooters, the Ola S1 and the Ola S1 Pro, have launched at an introductory price of INR 99,999 and INR 1,29,999, respectively. According to the company, the scooters have the best design, best performance, and best technology in their segment.
The electric scooters are designed to target the youth and are offered in vibrant and stunning colour options: Red, Yellow, Sky Blue, Black, Satin Blue, Grey, Pink, White, Gold, and Silver. The scooters have a fluid design with an iconic LED headlamp upfront, sleek-looking LED side indicators, and a massive LED tail lamp that enhances their futuristic appearance. The boot space is large enough (36 litres) to fit two helmets at the same time. They come equipped with a massive TFT touchscreen display and 3GB RAM, an octa-core processor, WiFi, 4G connectivity, geo-fencing, and Bluetooth features.
The dash is designed for multiple features and shows a host of information: it has seamless navigation integrated into it; riders can switch between the riding modes (it has built-in speakers that allows users to choose the sound of the vehicle or keep it silent, depending upon the riding modes) and customize the widgets according to the user’s mood; and each family member can create their own profile. Furthermore, users can play music and respond to a call or text on the go.
The scooters are equipped with a smart onboard sensor that communicates with your phone, so that you can start the vehicles just by approaching them, and you can also use your phone to lock them. The automatic and keyless experience is further supported by voice recognition, a multi-microphone array, and in-built AI speech-recognition algorithms: with their aid, riders can start the scooters by merely saying ‘Hey Ola’ and the vehicle will be ready to go. For the S1Pro variant, Ola also offers unique features such as a reserve option one click away, hill-hold function, and cruise function–all features mostly seen on four-wheelers.
Ola’s scooters are equipped with a non-removable battery–the S1 comes with a 2.98 kWh battery pack and the S1 Pro comes with a 3.97 kWh battery pack. According to the company, the scooters pack a ‘Hyperdrive Motor’, which generates a peak power of 8.5 kW. The S1 can achieve a top speed of 90 kmph, and the S1 Pro goes all the way up to 115 kmph. The claimed range of the S1 is 121 km and the S1 Pro’s is 181 km. While the S1 gets two riding modes–Normal and Sport–the S1 Pro will benefit from an extra riding mode–Hyper. Charging the scooter will take a claimed 4.48 hours and 6.30 hours for the S1 and the S1 Pro, respectively, via a portable home charger. As part of the company’s future plans, the Ola Hypercharger network will, says the company, help the scooters achieve a range of 75 km in 18 minutes.
Braking duties are handled by disc brakes on both wheels and the scooters come with a Combined Braking System. Similarly, the front wheel uses a single fork suspension and the rear wheel has a mono-shock suspension. The dimensions of the scooter measure 1859 mm in length, 712 mm in width, and 1160 mm in height. The wheelbase is 1359 mm; the ground clearance is 165 mm; and the kerb weight is 121 kg.
