Ola Electric has also been hard at work with an extensive public charging infrastructure. In addition to the home chargers, Ola’s Hyperhcarger charging network consists of fast chargers set up across 400 cities and even dedicated structures where you can park your e-scooter to charge it.
The Ola Electric S1 is based on the Dutch startup Etergo’s AppScooter. It has a very European design with smooth, flowing lines rather than having an aggressive design. The Ola Electric S1 comes with quite a few unique elements like the single telescopic fork, the dual LED headlamp with the LED DRL surround. Even the indicators are neatly integrated into the bodywork. The Ola Electric scooter boasts of a 36 litres storage space, which is the largest in our market.
The Ola Electric S1 is powered by a IPM motor rated for a peak power of 8.5kW and a continuous power of 5.5kW. The motor is paired to a 2.98kWh (S1) and 3.97kWh (S1 Pro) battery packs capable of a claimed range of 121km and 181km respectively. The S1 can achieve a top speed of 90kmph while the S1 Pro has a top speed of 115kmph. The Ola S1 Electric S1 takes 4hrs and 48 minutes to charge fully while the S1 pro can be charged in 6 hours and 30 minutes using the 750W portable charger. With the fast charger, an 18 minute charge can give the e-scooter a range of 75km. The Ola Electric S1 uses a tubular frame and is equipped with a single fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. For braking, the e-scooter has been equipped with a 280mm disc at the front and 220mm disc at the rear, aided by a combined braking system.
