Ola has expanded its electric scooter lineup in India with the launch of the Ola S1. The new electric scooter marks its official launch in India on the day of India’s 75th Independence Day, where the nation is celebrating “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.” The new Ola S1 scooter sits below the Pro model, which was launched last year in India.
As expected from an entry-level offering, the S1 has a shorter range on a single charge, a smaller battery and is slower than the Pro model. Ola has launched the S1 at an introductory price in India. Let’s take a look at the Ola S1 India price, colour options, features and other details.

Ola has launched the S1 in India at an introductory price of Rs 99,999. The company has launched its new electric scooter in India in multiple colour options, such as Porcelain White, Neo Mint, Coral Glam, Jet Black and Liquid Silver.

Ola S1 Features
The S1 looks fairly identical to its Pro sibling, minus some features. The S1 packs a smaller 3kWh battery, which is claimed to offer a real-world range of 128 km in Eco mode.

Ola has also kept the Cruise Control exclusive to the Pro model. The standard variant gets other features, such as navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and music.
The S1’s electric motor has a 5.5kW rated power and a peak motor power of 8.5kW. it has a top speed of 95 km/ hour, which is slower than the Pro model’s 116 km/ hour top speed.
