Updates in New Ola S1 Electric scooter
Ola Electric’s CEO Bhavish Aggarwal stated at the unveiling that the business has received requests to launch an Ola S1 with a lesser capacity battery for customers who travel only 25-30km per day. As a result, the company introduced the Ola S1 with a 2kWh battery pack that provides a range of 91km according to the Indian Driving Cycle or IDC. Also, while the 8.5kW motor in this new entry-level S1 is the same as in other S1s, its top speed is the slowest at 90kph.
Moving on to the price, S1 is priced at Rs 99,999 due to the lesser 2kWh battery. A further Rs 10,000 will buy you the top-spec S1, which has a 3kWh battery, an IDC range of 141km, and a top speed of 95kph.
The most expensive The Ola S1 Pro has the largest battery of the bunch at 4kWh, which equates to a range of 181km (IDC) and a top speed of 116kph. The price drop for the S1 Pro, on the other hand, will be the icing on the cake. The scooter is now Rs 1.30 lakh, which is Rs 10,000 less than the previous models.
New Ola S1 Air electric scooter
The Ola S1 Air series has been completely redesigned. The S1 Air featured a 2.5kWh battery and a range of 101 kilometres when it was announced. The new Ola S1 Air line, on the other hand, starts with a 2kWh battery and progresses to 3kWh and 4kWh models.
Customers who booked the initial Ola S1 Air with a 2.5kWh battery will also receive a free upgrade to the 3kWh battery type.
A thorough examination of the S1 Air’s portfolio indicates that the 2kWh battery option has an IDC range of 85 kilometres. The 3kWh model has a greater IDC range of 125km, while the 4kWh model, as expected, has the greatest range of 165km (IDC). Each scooter has the same 4.5kW motor and top speeds of 85kph. The base variant costs Rs 84,999, the mid variant costs Rs 99,999, while the premium variant costs Rs 1.10 lakh.
Ola has also teased it’s upcoming electric bike
The business also teased five forthcoming electric motorcycles near the end of the presentation. While details are being kept under wraps, the teaser suggests that the Ola e-bikes would range from sporty-looking machines to utilitarian-looking machines, as well as a neo-retro type. There is no news on which will go into production, the battery/motor capacities, or the planned launch dates.
