Design and Features
- In addition to the above-mentioned changes, the new Ola S1 X maintains a resemblance to the S1 Air. However, it features a greater amount of unpainted black plastics than the S1 Air.
- Compare to the S1 Air, it also misses out on the touchscreen TFT display. Instead, it gets a cost-effective LCD display.
Battery, Range, and More
- Similar to the S1 Air, the 3kWh variants of the S1 X also get a 4.5kW hub motor that claims a top speed of 90 kmph. It can do the 0-40 kmph sprint in just 3.3 seconds and claim a range of 151km.
- The base model with the 2kWh battery pack claims a top speed of 85 kmph and a certified range of 91 km. It can do 0-40 kmph in 4.1 seconds.
Ola S1 PRO Gen-2 Launched
- Ola has also taken this opportunity to introduce the 2nd-gen S1 Pro at Rs 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom). It shares its platform with the recently introduced S1 X and S1 Air models.
- With the new platform, the S1 Pro now features a flat floorboard. Also, its single-sided front suspension has been replaced by a conventional telescopic fork. At 116kg, it has shed 5kg to become lighter now.
- The e-scooter also boasts a number of improvements over its previous version. It now makes 5kW and goes up to 11kW at its strongest from the earlier output of 5.5kW continuous and 8.5kW of peak output.
- As a result, it now claims a top speed of 120 kmph from the previous 116 kmph. The acceleration time has also dropped from 2.9 seconds to 2.6 seconds.
- While the battery pack remains the same, its range has been increased from 181km to 195km. In Eco mode, the actual distance it can travel has also improved from 170km to 180km.
