Ola S1 Air Latest Updates

Ola Electric has announced offers and the benefits for the S1 Air. Check out the details here.

The Ola S1 Air falls in the middle of Ola's electric scooter range, positioned between the entry level Ola S1X and the top-of-the-line Ola S1 Pro. It competes directly with conventional ICE scooters like the Honda Activa 6G and the TVS Jupiter.

Ola S1 Air Key Highlights

Price: Ola has priced the S1 Air at Rs 1,04,999 (ex-showroom Bengaluru including EMPS 2024, which stands for Electric Mobility Promotion Scheme 2024).

Design: The Ola S1 Air takes a commuter approach to its design, when compared to the S1 Pro. It features a flat floorboard, black body cladding, a one-piece pillion grab rail, and steel wheels instead of alloy ones. While it may not have the eye-catching design elements of the S1 Pro, this makes the S1 Air a more budget-friendly choice within the Ola S1 series.

Features: The Ola S1 Air is equipped with LED lighting all around and has a 7-inch touchscreen TFT instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity. It offers a range of features including music control, remote unlocking, and a side-stand alert. And all this can be enhances any time with a simple over-the-air (OTA) software update. The S1 Air also incorporates a remote unlocking function and offers three riding modes: Eco, Normal, and Sports. Plus, it features a contoured single-piece seat with an ample 34-litre storage space beneath it.

Motor: The Ola S1 Air is driven by a hub motor with a nominal power output of 2.7kW and a peak power output of 4.5kW. It has a 3kWh battery pack, with which it has a certified range of 141km and a top speed of 85kmph. The electric scooter is built on a tubular frame and features a telescopic fork along with twin shock absorbers. For braking, there are drum brakes at both ends equipped with Combined Braking System (CBS) . The steel wheels are fitted with tubeless tyres. Other bits on the S1 Air include a 107kg kerb weight, 792mm seat height and a 165mm ground clearance.

Rivals: Rivals for the Ola S1 Air include electric scooters like the Ampere Nexus, Bajaj Chetak, TVS iQube (base variant) and the Okinawa Okhi90. For a similar price, though, you could also opt for popular petrol scooters like the Honda Activa 6G and the TVS Jupiter.

Range: Ola claims a certified range of 151km for the S1 Air.

Variants: The S1 Air is available in a single variant and comes in six colourways: Stellar Blue, Neon, Porcelain White, Coral Glam, Liquid Silver and Midnight Blue.

Flat discount and exchange bonus of up to Rs 5,000 each available for the Ola S1 X+. Additionally, Ola Care+ is now available for free for the Ola S1 Pro and the Ola S1 Air

Ola S1 Air Pros and Cons

S1 Air Advantages

Strong performance, Convenient flat floorboard, Feature packed

S1 Air Disadvantages

Jerky throttle calibration, Only gets drum brakes, inconsistent build quality

S1 Air Expert's Conclusion

The Ola S1 Air is a great electric scooter for those who want most of the features from the S1 Pro, but are on a tighter budget. The scooter we tested had quite a few build-quality issues, and until Ola Electric can thoroughly address them, we would hesitate to recommend it.

Ola S1 Air Expert Review

The Ola S1 Air can be thought of as a more budget-friendly version of Ola Electric’s flagship electric scooter - the S1 Pro. It gets the same design (with a few minor changes). But Ola has made the S1 Air more affordable by changing the underpinnings of the S1 Pro - different wheels, different suspension, different brakes, different motor and a smaller battery. So how have all these changes affected the way the S1 Air rides?

Underpinnings

One of the most obvious changes on the S1 Air can be seen up at the front. Gone is the single-sided suspension found on the S1 Pro; the S1 Air gets a conventional telescopic fork instead. It's also running on 12-inch pressed steel wheels (not alloys) and it's got drum brakes at both ends (instead of discs) with CBS.

The drum brakes on the S1 Air feel pretty ok for the most part. But as is the case with all drum brakes, brake hard a few times, and you immediately get some fade. This would’ve been fine if the S1 Air’s price was Rs 80,000 like Ola had originally promised. But at Rs 1,09,999 (ex-showroom), we would’ve expected a disc brake at least at the front.

Even at the back, the changes are very obvious. Gone is the angled monoshock, replaced by more conventional twin shocks and instead of the S1 Pro’s single-sided cast aluminum swingarm,, it's got a box-section steel swingarm.

On the butter-smooth roads outside the Ola Future Factory, we really couldn’t test how the S1 Air rides with this new suspension setup. But what we did observe was that the front rebound was pretty sharp while the rear rebound felt quite slow. How this will affect the scooter on the bumps and potholes in the real world is something we’ll have to see once we get the S1 Air for a proper road test.

Motor & Performance

But the biggest change on the S1 Air is, of course, its hub motor. While the S1 Pro gets a mid-drive motor and a belt drive, the S1 air is driven by a hub motor that’s a lot less powerful than the S1 Pro.

Claimed Top Speed

The S1 Air only comes with three riding modes: Eco, Normal and Sport. Unlike the Pro, this doesn’t get Warp mode which, honestly, is fine, as Sport Mode does feel quite peppy and should be quick enough for most things. Normal mode works well too, and would be our go-to mode for city riding. Eco though… well… just like on the S1 Pro, feels really slow and almost unusable under load. That said, it just might  work if you’re hypermiling and trying to extract maximum range.

The one issue we found on the S1 Air was the throttle calibration. Rolling on the throttle felt a bit jerky, especially in Sport mode. To top that off, regen braking, even in the medium setting, feels a bit too aggressive. And the negative throttle to engage regen braking feels a little too soft. So you can very easily engage the overly strong regen braking, making it feel like you’ve hit the brakes, when you simply just want to roll off the throttle. Also, as soon as you touch either of the brakes, the throttle cuts off instantly, which could make maneuvering in tight traffic a rather tricky affair.

But the throttle had an even larger issue, and that was even when you let off the throttle, the scooter kept accelerating for another half a second or so. Now this may feel irritating at times, and at other times could be downright dangerous. Of course, Ola told us that the models we were riding were all pre-production examples, so there are still some issues that have to be worked out. But an issue so potentially dangerous shouldn’t have passed muster at all.

Battery & Range

Battery Capacity

2.98kWh

4kWh

Claimed full charge time

5 hours

6.5 hours

Now to really keep costs in check, Ola has given the S1 air a smaller battery pack of just 2.98kWh. But the best part of the battery pack now being smaller and lighter gives the S1 Air a flat floor board. Now it's not a very big floorboard, mind you, but it's big enough to carry a backpack very easily. Having the flat floorboard is also great because on the S1 Air, the underseat storage has gone down by two litres. Still, at 34 litres, it’s a pretty huge boot.

Of course a smaller battery pack means lesser range and Ola claims an IDC range of 125 kilometres for the S1 Air, as compared to 181km for the S1 Pro. But as we found out in our long-term test of the S1 pro, this number is a bit on the higher side. What you might get in real life is closer to 100km on the S1 Air in the real world, though that's quite all right.

The biggest benefit of the smaller battery pack and the reengineered chassis is a lighter kerb weight - a full 13kg lower than the S1 Pro. And this really makes the S1 Air feel light on its feet while changing directions. While we didn’t get to test this thoroughly, we believe the S1 Air will be a breeze to manoeuvre through city traffic.

Features

The best part about the S1 Air is that it gets almost the exact same features as the S1 Pro. Sure, the Air’s 7-inch touchscreen console runs at a lower resolution than on the Pro, but that’s something you’ll rarely notice in everyday use. As for features, it gets the whole shebang - map-style navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, proximity unlock, music playback/control, built-in speakers, Party Mode, user profiles, riding moods, document storage, remote boot unlock, reverse Mode and OTA updates.

Verdict

At Rs 1,09,000 (till Aug 15, 2023; Rs 1,19,999 after, both prices ex-showroom), which is about Rs 30,000 less than the Pro, the S1 air does make a good case for itself. But there are some issues that Ola must work out before we can recommend one. First, of course, is the throttle, which does feel very scary at times, and secondly the overall quality feels a bit inconsistent. The panel gaps all around, for instance, are a little bit off, and even the paint quality, at close inspection, looks a little bit suspect

But as mentioned before, Ola said we were the riding pre-production scooters, though at the same time we got to observe the S1 Air under full production at their Future Factory. So take what Ola says with a pinch of salt. 

Summing up, should you buy an S1 Air right away? Well, if I were you, I'd hold for a little while and see if Ola can work out all the kinks. But when they do, the S1 Air will make quite a lot of sense.

  • Lots of issue

    The price of Ola S1 Air is good and is the feature loaded scooter but the screen is slow to respond and the motor takes time to respond. With the decent top speed around 90 kmph and is a good scooter to ride but when ride this scooter for 15-20 minutes it gives heating issue. The boot space is huge and the performance is good but there are lot of issue in this scooter.

  • new strength new style

    The Ola S1 Air is a more affordable option compared to its sibling, the S1 Pro. real-world range of around 70-80 kilometers on a single charge. It claimed top speed of 90 kmph which is very decent in this segment . Available in a variety of colors which best suits my style . No ABS yet, but comes with drum brakes on both wheels it is the only feature loved by my father . Provides enough torque for navigating city traffic.

  • The Eco-Friendly Commuter

    It has been a few months since I switched to the Ola S1 Air for my daily commutes, opting for a greener mode of transport. This electric scooter is quite a charmer with its sleek design and digital flair, featuring a 2.5 kWh battery that promises a range of up to 101 km on a single charge. The ride is smooth, quiet and surprisingly quick for city rides.The overall build quality feels a bit underwhelming and the storage space could be better utilized. Moreover, the charging time of approximately 4.5 hours for a full battery may not suit everyone's schedule.
