Ola Electric, the largest electric vehicle manufacturer in India, has begun the deliveries for the brand-new S1 Pro Gen 2. The new S1 Pro, which is based on the more advanced Gen-2 platform, has undergone a technological makeover in order to improve the riding experience. Over 100 cities have already received S1 Pro Gen 2 deliveries, with more locations to follow soon. The S1 Pro Gen 2 model, which costs Rs 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom), has a number of improvements over the version it replaces such as a longer riding range and enhanced practicality. Apart from the S1 Pro Gen 2, the Bengaluru-based EV maker expanded its model range with the inclusion of the brand-new S1X models.
Commenting on this recent development, an Ola spokesperson remarked, “We are extremely delighted to start the deliveries of our flagship scooter S1 Pro Gen 2. With the best specs and cutting-edge technology, the new S1 Pro is one of the most advanced scooters in the country. Building on the success of the S1 Pro Gen 1, we are confident that the S1 Pro Gen 2 will play a pivotal role in accelerating #EndICEAge in the segment.”
Ola S1 Pro Gen2 Electric Scooter: Updates
The Ola S1 Pro Gen 2 has updated mechanical and stylistic elements. With a flat floorboard, the space can now be used efficiently to carry everyday objects, which enhances the practicality of the e-scooter. Along with some minor cosmetic changes, a stronger single-piece tubular grab rail has also been added. The e-scooter has a 34-litre bootspace capacity and is 6 kg lighter as a result of the structural improvements. It is available for purchase in five colour schemes: Matt White, Stellar, Midnight Blue, Jet Black, and Amethyst. As mentioned above, the deliveries of the Ola S1 Pro Gen 2 have started in 100 Indian cities, and more are yet to be included. It can be reserved online or at any of the authorised Ola Experience Centers located across India.
