Ola Electric has announced to open new purchase window for its Ola S1 Pro electric scooter. The new window has been opened after two months, when India’s largest electric scooter maker opened a purchase window during Holi 2022 for two days, announcing a new Gerua colour for the EV. However, this time, Ola has hiked the prices of the S1 Pro scooter by Rs 10,000. The Ola S1 Pro electric scooter is now priced at Rs 1.39 lakh (ex-showroom). Although Ola Electric hasn’t given any reason for the price hike, it can be attributed to the recent roll out of OS 2.0, which is the updated OTA software update being offered to select customers, and will be added to all the existing Ola scooters soon.
Under the new OS 2.0, the Ola S1 Pro will get an ECO mode for additional driving range. Recently, an Ola S1 Pro owner managed to achieve 200 km range driving the scooter on the ECO mode and at controlled speed. Ola CEO Bhavish Agarwal later gifted him a brand new Gerua-coloured S1 Pro.
