Recently, Ola Electric's CEO Bhavish Aggarwal posted a teaser picture of a new product on the company's website – perhaps a new model in the Ola S1 scooter range! Ola Electric currently has three offerings on the market – the S1, S1 Pro, and S1 Air electric scooters – which will make this new model the company's fourth electric two-wheeler. The EV manufacturer gave us a sneak peek of the new model ahead of its formal debut next month. In the teaser shot, one of them seems to have what looks like a little windscreen above the headlight housing. In addition, Mr Aggarwal’s tweet says that we'll learn more information about it in July. Future electric scooters from Ola Electric are expected to be different from the company's existing offerings. Ola Electric has not shared many details regarding their forthcoming electric scooter.

Ola Electric's founder and CEO, Bhavish Aggarwal, revealed, via a tweet, that the company is working on a fresh initiative. He tweeted, ‘Announcing our next product event in July. Calling it the endICEAge show, Part 1. Part 1 of the show would end ICE age in scooters! With S1 Pro, S1 Air and maybe one more thing!’
Ola Leaked Car Design
Just a few days ago, Ola Electric's patent illustration was leaked. The electric four-wheeler seen in the patent illustration is most likely a concept vehicle; the prototype may look different, especially as it has large wheels and headlights. We can see the company's future design language in the leaked picture of the electric car.
Similar to the Tesla sedans (Model S and Model 3), the Ola car has a basic, recognisable design with few lines. The front of the Ola EV has a bumper with aerodynamic nooks, a tiny air inlet for cooling the batteries, and streamlined headlights linked to a long strip of LEDs. The subtle body lines along the car's flanks facilitate the free flow of air.
Ola S1 Air Deliveries to Begin Soon
The Ola S1 Air electric scooter will soon go into production. Due to recent modifications in the FAME-II scheme's subsidy structure for electric two-wheelers, Ola has discontinued the S1 Air's 2kWh and 4kWh battery pack variants.
A single 3 kWh battery will power the vehicle now, offering a range of up to 125km (IDC). The scooter will have a peak speed of 85km/h and a reported 0 – 60km/h acceleration time of 9.8 seconds. It will take around four and a half hours to fully charge the scooter.
Ola has announced that it will begin shipping the S1 Air in July 2023. The Si Air will be available in five different colours and will cost Rs 1.09 lakh (ex-showroom).
