Sales numbers have reached a new milestone for Ola Electric, the country's leading electric two-wheeler producer. Data regarding the brand's August Sales from the Vahan portal indicate that the Bengaluru-based EV manufacturer dispatched 19,000 electric scooters last month. This is among Ola Electric's highest-ever sales periods with a staggering 400 per cent increase in sales compared to the same period in 2022. The electric two-wheeler market share of the company presently stands at 30 per cent. As of now, Ola sells five electric scooters in India. Three new models—the S1 Air, the S1 Pro Gen2, and the S1 X—were rolled out last month in three distinct trim levels. The three variants range in price from Rs 90,000 to Rs 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom), giving buyers options at various pricing points. Notably, the firm has received over 75,000 bookings since the launch event.

Speaking of the prices, the newly launched S1 X is offered by the brand in three different configurations. It has a starting price of Rs 90,000 (ex-showroom). The S1 X+ has only a 3kWh battery pack and costs Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom) in comparison to the standard Ola S1 X, which features 2kWh and 3kWh battery packs. On the other hand, the Gen2 S1 Pro is priced at Rs 1.47 lakh and the S1 Air has a price tag of Rs 1.20 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom.
Now coming to another important aspect, the deliveries. For the S1 X+, the deliveries will start this month, and Ola Electric is already accepting reservations for the same. Meanwhile, for the standard S1 X (2kWh and 3kWh), the deliveries are slated to commence in December. Prospective buyers can now book the e-scooters for a token amount of Rs 999. The automaker is also developing a new range of electric motorbikes, which should arrive in the market by next year and will likely be sold under the M1 brand.
Ola S1 X: Performance and Range
First off, Ola's new 'Gen 2' e-scooter platform serves as the foundation for the S1 X. Both the S1 X+ and S1 X (3kWh) come equipped with a potent 8bhp motor, a 3kWh battery with a 151-kilometre range, and a top speed of 90km/h. Thanks to its 2kWh battery and 8bhp motor, the S1 X (2kWh) has a top speed of 85km/h and a range of 91-kilometre. The S1 Air and the S1 X scooter lines both use the same hardware. Steel wheels, drum brakes on both ends, dual rear shocks, telescopic front forks, Eco, Normal, and Sport riding modes, reverse mode, 34-litre trunks, seat heights of 805mm, combi braking systems, LED headlights, and 12-inch wheels are all standard on these e-scooters.
Ola S1 Air: Design Details and Mechanical Specs
The Ola S1 Air and Ola S1 Pro electric scooters look extremely similar from a design perspective. However, a more thorough look begins to reveal a number of variations. The e-scooter's blacked-out panels are combined with matte and metallic colour finishes for a dual-tone aesthetic. Neon, Stellar Blue, Coral Glam, Midnight Blue, Liquid Silver, and Porcelain White are the six colour options available for the model. Further prominent design changes include steel wheels, a more functional flat footboard, a simpler tubular rear grab handle, and classic telescopic front suspension.
A 3.0kWh battery pack and an 8.04bhp motor are included with the S1 Air. With a peak speed cap of 90km/h and a 0 to 40km/h acceleration time of just 3.3 seconds, the EV maker promises a 151-kilometre range on a single charge. It might charge completely in less than five hours. In addition to these and other notable features, the S1 Air boasts a telescopic front fork, double shock absorbers in the back, drum brakes on both ends, cruise control, twin projector headlamps, navigation, reverse mode, ride modes, and a 7-inch touchscreen interface unit with GPS and smartphone connectivity. More than 1,000 Ola experience centers across India offer the S1 Air, which can be purchased through the Ola app.
