Ola S1 Pro to get MoveOS 2.0 update in April
Ola Electric has announced that it will release a new OTA update, named MoveOS 2.0 for the S1 Pro e-scooter in April. The update will bring several improvements and features, including cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, and navigation. Separately, the brand has also announced that the two-wheeler will get a price-hike ahead of the next purchase window, whose dates are yet to be revealed.
- The Ola S1 Pro was marketed as one of the most feature-loaded scooters in India at the time of launch. However, when deliveries began, many of the features that were promised were missing from the two-wheeler, leaving the owners disgruntled.
- Now, the company has said it will introduce all the important features via an over-the-air update next month.
The new update is named MoveOS 2.0 and it will start rolling out by the end of April via OTA method. It will add features like Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, cruise control, a companion app for the riders, and performance improvements. The update may also fix the overheating issue and rectify a bug that makes the e-scooter go forward in reverse mode.
The Ola S1 Pro is built on a tubular frame and has an indicator-mounted front apron, a smiley-shaped headlight, a single-piece seat, and a flat footboard. It packs a full-LED illumination and a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster with support for voice control and connectivity options. The two-wheeler is offered in 10 color variants and rides on 12-inch aluminium alloy wheels.
The Ola S1 Pro draws power from an 8.5kW electric motor linked to a 3.97kWh battery pack. It offers a range of 181km on a single charge and has a top speed of 115km/h.
For the safety of the rider, the Ola S1 Pro is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with a combined braking system and hill-hold control for better handling. The suspension duties of the scooter are taken care of by a single fork on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
The Ola S1 Pro is priced at Rs. 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the company is set to increase the price of the scooter ahead of the next purchase window which should open in the coming weeks.
