The next window for sale of Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters open on November 1, 2021

Ola created a storm when it launched its first range of electric scooters in India on Independence Day this year. The new S1 and S1 Pro e-scooters have received a thunderous response with the ride-hailing major selling two-wheelers worth Rs 1,100 crores in the first two days of sale.

Ola Electric Scooter Testing Continues

Deliveries of e-scooters are scheduled to begin in the next few days. However, even after launch, Ola continues to test its battery-powered scooter on road. Spy shots of the scooter being tested on the streets of Bangalore have been shared by automotive enthusiast Arya.

From the looks of it, there doesn’t seem to be any visual updates on the scooter even though front end of the two-wheeler isn’t visible in these images. Ola Electric, the EV manufacturing arm of Ola, might be testing a new variant of the e-scooter with slightly different specifications.

It could be a different battery pack or an electric motor with dissimilar output. The scooter seen in the images could also offer a new set of creature comforts. It is also possible that Ola is testing the same scooter which has been launched, with a part that is probably procured from a new vendor.
