New Indian firm Ola launch stunning and beautiful 70 mph electric scooter –

For months Ola Electric has shared pre-launch images of its upcoming EV scooter, and this week finally officially launched. The results look stunning with the initial images and prices for the now orderable, in India, Ola S1 and S1 Pro.

Produced locally in Ola’s giant electric scooter mega-factory with a planned capacity of 10 million vehicles per year, the S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters are rolling out with an eye on both domestic Indian sales and later international exports.

Today the scooters look like leaders in the local market, but tomorrow could see shockwaves reverberate globally.

That’s because the two models offer better performance than any other comparably sized electric scooters.

An 8.5 kW electric motor mounted within the scooter’s frame provides the S1 with a top speed of 90 km/h (56 mph) and an even faster top speed in the S1 Pro of 115 km/h (71 mph).

An innovated banana-shaped battery pack under the rider’s feet offers 3 kWh of capacity and 121 km (75 miles) of range. In the high spec S1 Pro, those figures increase to 4 kWh and 181 km (112 miles) of range.

The battery can be quick charged in around 30 minutes. An 18-minute charge on an Ola quick charge point will provide 75 km (46 miles) of range.

Software is key

The high performance of the scooters might not even be their biggest selling points. Instead, the technology-packed OS is what truly sets these scooters apart from pretty much anything else currently on the market.

The 121 kg (267 lb) scooters come with a large 7inch colour touch screen that displays GPS-based map navigation in addition to typical performance readouts on user-selectable skins.

Just like your cell phone, the scooter also packs a digital voice assistant. Saying to the scooter, “Hey Ola, play some music,” will pull up your playlist and get the tunes cranking out of the scooter’s built-in speaker system.

Riders can even take calls via the scooter’s OS by connecting their phones. The scooter’s app provides a high level of control. Riders can pop the trunk, adjust lighting, set geo-fencing boundaries, modify electronic sound profiles (or remove them entirely), create rider profiles, and more.
