A few days ago, Ola Electric announced that they will temporarily be opening the booking window for the Ola S1 Pro on March 17th and 18th to celebrate the festival of Holi. The CEO of Ola Bhavish Aggarwal also tweeted out that this will be the last chance to get the Ola S1 Pro for Rs 1,29,999 (ex-showroom).
Thanks to all who’ve purchased S1 Pro already and special thanks to those who’ve bought their 2nd or 3rd S1 Pro!

The announcement comes after Ola competitor Ather announced a price hike for its A450X and the 450 Plus electric scooters. The brand has not yet revealed the new pricing of the S1 Pro electric scooter, but experts have speculated a 3-5% price hike.
Other than that, Ola will also be pushing out the MoveOS 2.0 via an OTA update around the end of April. The MoveOS 2.0 is said to enhance the overall ride experience and bring features like turn-by-turn navigation, location sharing with the scooter, and locating a charging station nearby. The update will also bring a companion app, new Bluetooth-based functions, cruise control, and general bug fixes and performance improvements.

Ola S1 Pro electric scooter comes with an 8.5kW motor capable of producing 58Nm of torque. The 3.97kWh battery of the Ola S1 Pro promises a 181km range on a single full charge. However, in real-life experience, the actual range comes out around 135km. The scooter takes around 6 hours to charge from 0-100 percent via a home wall socket. Ola claims a top speed of 115km/hr on the S1 Pro and a 3-second time to acceleration speed of 0-40km/hr.
