In India’s electric two wheeler segment, someone has made the most headlines, then it is Ola Electric. The company strengthened the competition by launching the e-scooter last year, but in March this year, the incident of fire in its Ola S1 Pro scooter raised concerns. Such incidents happened with many other companies as well, but Ola Electric was the most discussed. The government set up an inquiry into the matter. Going through all the good and bad experiences, Ola Electric has achieved great success. Ola Electric has become the number 1 e-scooter company in the country. The Bangalore-based company has created this record in just 5 months of starting the sale of electric scooters. It has overtaken the country’s number-1 electric brand Hero Electric.

According to media reports, Hero Electric has sold 34,714 electric scooters in the four months of this year. That’s how he is at the forefront. At the same time, Ola Electric has sold 26,817 units till the end of April 2022. But looking at the figures for April only, Ola has sold 12683 units, while Hero Electric sold 6570 units last month. In this way, in the month of April, Ola Electric became the number-1 electric scooter brand in the country. It is believed that this gap may continue in the coming months as well.

The company’s most popular electric scooter is Ola S1 Pro. Coming in 10 color options, this two wheeler is backed by an 8.5kW battery and comes with three ride modes which include Normal, Sports and Hyper mode. The top speed of this electric scooter is 115 km/h. It reaches the speed of 0 to 40km/h in just 3 seconds.

The scooter can go up to a range of 181 kms in a single full charge. Modern features like hill hold control, cruise control, remote start and stop and lock-unlock have been given in Ola S1 Pro. Disc brake system has been given in the front and rear wheels. It also has 36 liters of storage space under the seat.
