Notably, the model has garnered over 50,000 reservations so far, according to the manufacturer's prior announcement. Over 100 locations across the nation have started receiving deliveries of the Ola S1 Air, and the firm claims that more cities are going to follow shortly. Moreover, to satisfy the soaring demand for the S1 Air, which is built on the Gen2 platform and also receives a thoroughly redesigned battery pack, the EV maker is increasing production at the FutureFactory. The 3kWh battery pack that powers the electric scooter has a 151-kilometre range on a single charge.

Ola S1 Air: Design
In terms of design, the Ola S1 Air and the Ola S1 Pro electric scooters have a very similar appearance. However, a more detailed look starts to show several variances. First off, the e-scooter has blacked-out panels along with matte and metallic finished colours for a dual-tone appearance. The e-scooter can be had in six colour schemes, including Neon, Stellar Blue, Coral Glam, Midnight Blue, Liquid Silver, and Porcelain White. Steel wheels, traditional telescopic front suspension, 34-litre boot space, a simpler tubular rear grab handle, and a more useful flat footboard are additional apparent design modifications.
