Ola S1 electric scooter's sale rescheduled to September 15
Ola Electric had launched its S1 electric scooter in India last month and it was scheduled to go on sale yesterday. However, due to technical issues with the website, customers were unable to make the purchases. Ola CEO, Bhavish Aggarwal, has said that the team is working to resolve the issues and the sale will now commence at 8am on September 15.
The Ola S1 sits on a tubular frame and features a minimalist profile with an indicator-mounted apron, a smiley-shaped headlamp, and a flat seat with a pillion grab rail. It also offers a 7.0-inch TFT touchscreen unit, a full-LED lighting setup, and rides on 12-inch wheels. The two-wheeler has a wheelbase of 1,345mm, an underseat storage capacity of 36 liters, and weighs 125kg.
The Ola S1 houses an 8.5kW motor and a 3.9kWh battery pack. It boasts a top-speed of 90km/h and a range of up to 121km. There's also a Pro variant which has a top-speed of 115km/h and promises a range of up to 181km.
For the rider's safety, the Ola S1 is equipped with disc brakes on both wheels, along with a combined braking system for improved handling. It offers Urban and Sport riding modes while the S1 Pro gets an additional Hyper mode. Suspension duties on the vehicle are taken care of by a single fork on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear.
Ola S1 carries a price-tag of Rs. 1 lakh while the S1 Pro costs Rs. 1.3 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom). It will be available starting September 15 at 8am. Those who have already pre-booked the vehicle will get the chance to buy the scooter first.
