Ola S1, Ola S1 Pro specifications
The first scooter from Ola Electric is offered in two versions and both have a peak power of 8.5 kW. The Vanilla Ola S1 receives a 2.98 kWh battery, which offers a range of 121 km and a top speed of 90 km / h. Ola Electric claims that the Ola S1 can accelerate from 0-40 km / h in 3.6 seconds. It also has two driving modes – normal and sport.
The Ola S1 Pro, on the other hand, gets a 3.97 kWh battery via an “optional power enhancement accessory” that Ola Electric claims gives it a range of 181 km and a top speed of 115 km / h. It should accelerate from 0-40 km / h in 3 seconds. The Ola S1 Pro has three driving modes – Normal, Sport and Hyper.
The electric scooters are also equipped with a battery management system that “actively monitors the battery for optimal durability, performance, range and safety”. Ola Electric got rid of a physical key and it will automatically lock and unlock when the paired phone – which acts as a digital key – is nearby.
The 7-inch touchscreen display has multiple microphones, AI speech recognition algorithms and runs on MoveOS – developed by Ola Electric. The company is promoting the vehicle control unit (VCU), which is powered by an octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and has 4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The sound of the electric scooter is configurable and is available in four modes at startup – Bolt, Care, Vintage and Wonder. There’s also a voice command feature that allows the driver to complete tasks without physically navigating the touchscreen.
The company has also added a number of security features to the Ola Scooter, including an anti-theft alarm system, geo-fencing, and a flame-retardant, water- and dust-resistant battery. There are 110/70 R12 tires on both corners with a rear mono-shock suspension and a front single fork suspension.
In addition to the front and rear disc brakes, the Ola S1 Pro also has a hill hold function. In addition, the electric scooter is also given a reverse mode by turning the throttle stick in the opposite direction.
