Because of the overwhelming reaction to Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters, Ola Electrics ensures that its test ride facility is expanded to the broadest possible number of cities, providing possible exposure to its electric scooters. Ola Electrics has set a goal to make test rides available to the general public by the 15th of this month.

In August of this year, Ola Electric debuted two electric scooters, the Ola S1 and S1 Pro. Ola said in September that sales of its first electric scooter had exceeded Rs 1,100 crore in only two days. Many believe the below reasons play a seminal role in eliciting such huge attention and sell.

The Ola S1 and S1 Pro Offer Affordable Mileage

Ola Electric makes a huge claim about its scooters capable of covering a long distance on a single charge, which many people believe to be critical when considering whether or not to purchase an electric vehicle. While the S1 model claims to be able to go 121 kilometres before having to be recharged, the more costly S1 Pro boasts of being able to travel around 180 kilometres before needing to be recharged. However, the thing to be noted here is we still lack suitable infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Ola S1 and S1 Pro  Specifications

The Ola Electric S1 scooter’s goal is to strike a balance between riding performance and a variety of features, some of which are industry firsts. In addition to three riding modes – Normal, Sport, and Hyper – as well as rapid acceleration and a steady high-speed ride, there are additional features such as a giant display screen with an Android-based operating system, app control, speakers, a USB connector for charging, and so on.

Ola S1 and S1 Pro: How Much Do They Cost?

The Ola S1 electric scooter comes in two variants: the S1 and the S1 Pro. The S1 is the more affordable of the two, priced at Rs 1 Lakh, while the latter variant comes with a price tag of Rs 1.30 Lakh. (ex-showroom). Both the scooters come in the price range of most of the petrol run scooters.

Airbus 320 planes are believed to be a strong competitor against Boeing’s B737 Max planes.

The aviation industry is experiencing a good time since the Tata group’s taking over the Air India administration. Tata group owns three airlines in India at present. However, IndiGo remains the largest airline operator. Now the latest entry of Akasa Air in the aviation industry will begin a new chapter. The last two years were quite a down phase for airline operators as the corona pandemic affected all industries badly.
