Ola Electric, India’s largest EV manufacturer has today accelerated the momentum towards ending the #ICEAge with the expansion of its hugely succesful Ola S1 portfolio and the launch of its much anticipated Ola S1 Air.
While Ola’s hugely successful S1 portfolio gets a new 2kWh battery pack variant, taking the excitement a step further, the Ola S1 Air too has been announced in 3 new variants, powered by 2KWh, 3KWh and 4KWh battery packs respectively.
Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Ola, said, “The uptick in EVs has been quick once world class alternatives to ICE vehicles were made available for the Indian customers. With the dominance of Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro in the premium scooter segment, India is already one of the biggest EV markets in the world. The expansion of the successful S1 portfolio and the S1 Air in 3 new variants, and across multiple price points will encourage more customers to permanently switch to EVs. If 2022 was the beginning of the end for the ICE Age, 2023 will alter the course of the 2W industry in India.”
An S1 for everyone
The success of the S1 Pro and S1 have cemented Ola’s market leadership. Carrying forward the momentum into 2023 as well, Ola surpassed the 25000 units sales mark yet again in January while also clocking its best month ever monthly performance.
Now bolstering the already formidable S1 portfolio, Ola’s new S1 variant is powered by a 2kWh battery, the powerful 8.5 kW motor, and packs in the familiar great acceleration and performance of the other variants, but at a much more aﬀordable price. Priced at INR 99,999, the new Ola S1 variant oﬀers an IDC range of 91 kms and a top speed of 90 kms/hr.
