Ola S1 Engine

The Ola Electric S1 is powered by a IPM motor rated for a peak power of 8.5kW and a continuous power of 5.5kW. The motor is paired to a 2.98kWh (S1) and 3.97kWh (S1 Pro) battery packs capable of a claimed range of 121km and 181km respectively. The S1 can achieve a top speed of 90kmph while the S1 Pro has a top speed of 115kmph. The Ola S1 Electric S1 takes 4 hrs and 48 minutes to charge fully while the S1 pro can be charged in 6 hours and 30 minutes using the 750W portable charger. With the fast charger, an 18 minute charge can give the e-scooter a range of 75km. The Ola Electric S1 uses a tubular frame and is equipped with a single fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. For braking, the e-scooter has been equipped with a 280mm disc at the front and 220mm disc at the rear, aided by a combined braking system.

Ola S1 Range

S1 can go upto 181 km/charge after a full charge.

Ola S1 Charging Time

S1 battery takes 6.30 Hours to get charged.

Ola S1 Variants

The Ola Electric S1 has been launched in two variants: Standard and S1 Pro. Ola Electric has equipped the standard model with a 2.98kWh battery and the motor has been restricted to 90kmph. Meanwhile, the S1 Pro, in addition to a bigger battery and a claimed top speed of 115kmph, also gets additional features like voice assist, hill hold control, and additional riding modes. The Ola Electric S1 has been priced at Rs 99,999 while the S1 Pro is priced at Rs 1,29,999 (both ex-showroom Bengaluru, including FAME-II subsidy).

Ola S1 Design

The Ola Electric S1 is based on the Dutch startup Etergo’s AppScooter. It has a very European design with smooth, flowing lines rather than an aggressive design. The Ola Electric S1 comes with quite a few unique elements like the single telescopic fork, the dual LED headlight with the LED DRL surround. Even the indicators are neatly integrated into the bodywork. Thanks to its cleverly designed battery pack, the Ola Electric scooter boasts a 36-litre storage space, which is the largest in our market.

Ola S1 Features

The Ola Electric scooter is loaded with features. Both the variants are equipped with an all-LED lighting system, a massive 36-litre underseat storage, TFT instrument cluster with smartphone, Bluetooth, wi-fi and GPS connectivity. You can even customise your homescreen to meet your mood with custom widgets and LITE versions of your favorite applications. Other noteworthy standard features include side stand down and anti-theft alert, geo-fencing, reverse mode, Get Home Mode, Take Me Home Lights, and a Limp Home Mode. The S1 Pro variant additionally comes with a hill-hold function, voice assistant, and cruise control. OLA will soon launch its ‘Companion’ app enabling smoother integration of features via your smartphone.

Ola S1 Competitors

What is good and bad in S1?

  • S1 Positives

    Light on its feet; Ride quality is pliant; Has an enormous boot

  • S1 Negatives

    Throttle calibration is imperfect; Switchgear lacks tactile feel; Inconsistent quality issues

  • Expert's Conclusion

    In our experience, the Ola S1 Pro has proved to be a promising scooter that could combine practicality and performance. But, there is a “but.” Sure, while quality could be better, it isn’t a deal-breaker. The unexplained drop in performance dampened the riding experience and the more subtle issue of poor throttle calibration hampers the promise of practicality and is a potential safety concern.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying S1

Q. Can 4 feet man ride ola electric scooter?
  • The Ola S1 comes with a saddle height of 792mm which might be difficult to ride by a 4 ft height person. Moreover, we would suggest taking the test ride so that you can feel the comfort. Moreover, comfort is something that can be best judged personally and varies from person to person. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and select your city accordingly.
Q. Is the battery removable or not? Can this scooter be charged at home?
  • Ola Electric S1 gets a fixed battery. As for charging, first up, there’s the conventional home charger that will be provided with the scooter. It requires no additional installation; customers can simply plug it into a regular wall socket overnight (the PR doesn’t mention whether it is 5A or 15A, but we assume it is the former) for a complete charge. Next up, there will be charging ports across public places like parking lots, IT parks, colleges, malls, and the likes. These will be of the fast-charging type. Ola claims its scooter can be charged from 0-50 percent in just 18 minutes, which will be enough for a 75km ride. On paper, this should translate to a claimed range of 150km, which is brilliant. However, it remains to be seen at what speeds this figure is achieved.
Q. Is this scooter good for riding on hills?
  • The excitement of the Ola S1 Pro has been built on its electron munching hardware. Developed in-house, the motor’s 5.5kW of power makes other offerings pale in comparison, and that’s without factoring in the 8.5kW of peak power. Considering the power and its compact dimensions, the scooter should fair well in the hills. A 115kmph top speed claim eclipses all scooters and several motorcycles at this price point too. The range of 181km makes it a genuine solution for the family. The Hyper mode is potent, but it doesn’t feel as explosive off the line as Ather’s Warp mode, which sends the 450x rocketing off the line. The S1 Pro starts in a sprightly manner and unleashes even more of its potential once it builds some speed. We ended up spending more time in Sport mode as the initial throttle response in Normal mode was quite soft, which made it feel sluggish. Switching to Sport mode made the S1 Pro immediately peppier as the throttle response was stronger and it increased the top speed from the Normal mode. However, Sport mode highlighted another issue: a lag when opening the throttle. The motor was a bit slow to respond, which means riding at low speeds doesn’t feel smooth or predictable and can catch you off-guard - like when making U-turns. Also, when you close the throttle, the motor continues to accelerate for half a second after, and that can make things a little hairy. The software that links the batteries, throttle and motor played up further as it reduced performance without warning. Read more -Ola S1 Pro First Ride Review: Worth The Hype?.
