Why does this story matter?
- The Ola S1 and S1 Pro have received an outstanding response in India. Over Rs. 1,100 crore worth of electric scooters were sold in just two days in September. However, due to production issues and chip shortages, the new purchase orders were halted in November.
- The company has now announced it would accept final payments, giving relief to customers who had pre-booked their two-wheelers.
The scooters ride on 12.0-inch aluminium-alloy wheels
The Ola S1 and S1 Pro sit on a tubular frame and feature a flat-type seat with a pillion grab rail, an indicator-mounted front apron with a smiley-shaped headlamp, and a full-LED lighting setup. The scooters have a 7.0-inch Bluetooth-enabled touchscreen instrument console with support for Wi-Fi connectivity and 12.0-inch aluminium-alloy wheels. They have a 36-liter under-seat storage compartment and a wheelbase of 1,359mm.
Ola S1 Pro has a top-speed of 115km/h
Ola S1 and S1 Pro pack an 8.5kW electric motor, paired with a 2.98kWh and 3.97kWh battery pack, respectively. The S1 boasts a range of 121km and a top-speed of 90km/h while the Pro model has a 181km of range and a 115km/h top-speed.
They have a mono-shock unit on the rear
For the safety of the riders, the Ola S1 and S1 Pro are fitted with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, in addition to a combined braking system. The Pro variant also gets hill-hold control and cruise control. The suspension duties on the e-scooters are handled by a single fork on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear side.
