One of India’s rising electric two-wheeler manufacturers, Ola Electric, has announced a new limited-edition ‘Gerua’ colour for its S1 Pro. The company recently stated that it would reopen the next purchase window for its S1 Pro e-scooter on March 17th-18th. These two days also mark the iconic festival of Holi in India, during which Ola will introduce the all-new colour.
Ola Electric also confirmed that all customers who had reserved the e-scooter could eventually purchase it on March 17th, 2022. Meanwhile, customers can place an order for the e-scooter with the limited-edition ‘Gerua’ colour option on March 18th, 2022. Interested customers can make digital payments for the e-scooter via the Ola App, with deliveries planned for April 2022.
Ola Electric currently offers the e-scooter in two variants- S1 and S1 Pro, with the latter costing INR 1,29,999 (ex-showroom). However, thanks to FAME II regulations and various subsidies, the S1 Pro prices vary from one state to another. Designed and engineered in India, the S1 Pro e-scooter sports 10 colour options, each with a matte, satin or glossy finish. Additionally, the S1 Pro sports a fluid design on the body with a twin-headlamp setup and a semicircular DRL. The e-scooter also sports a side step, a grab rail for pillion riders, large alloy wheels, and an ergonomic seat.
Powering the S1 Pro is an 8.5 kW electric motor that receives power from a 3.97 kWh battery. This allows the e-scooter to achieve a top speed of 115 kph whilst offering 181 Km of range per charge. Thanks to this performance, the S1 Pro can accelerate from 0-40 kph in a brisk 3 seconds. Ola offers a 750W portable charge for S1 Pro customers with a charging time of 6 hours and 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, the S1 Pro can achieve 75 Km of charge in less than 18 minutes using Ola’s proprietary fast charger. In terms of features, the e-scooter sports a 7-inch touchscreen with microphones and in-house-developed AI speech recognition algorithms. Ola has also equipped the S1 Pro with a 220mm front disc brake and a 180mm rear disc brake. Other highlighting features include Cruise Control, Geo-Fencing, GPS/Bluetooth/Wifi Connectivity, Anti-Theft System, Reverse Mode, Proximity Lock, and receiving calls/texts.
