Moreover, it has three dedicated modes to cater to different situations. They are called Normal, Sports, and Hyper mode too. Ola claims that the S1 Pro has a maximum performance of 8.5kW and 58Nm of maximum torque.

Furthermore, there is a 3.97 kWh battery with fast charging support. By using a traditional home charging port, the Ola S1 Pro can be fully charged in 6 hours and 30 minutes. It also gets a special vehicle control unit that features an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and high-speed connectivity options such as 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Plus, it has a proximity lock/unlocks system, reverses park assists, a built-in navigation system, geo-fencing, a phone call, and message alert system, and an anti-theft alarm.
While for the regular Ola S1 Electric Scooter, it gets the same electric motor as the higher-end model that can deliver a maximum performance of 8.5kW and a maximum torque of 58Nm. It can go from 0-40kmph in 3.6 seconds and from 0-60kmph in 7 seconds according to the claims.

The battery fully charges in 4 hours and 48 minutes using a traditional home charger.
As for the pricing, the Ola S1 and S1 Pro come with a starting price of Rs. 99,999 and Rs. 1,29,999, respectively. However, the company is offering the S1 series scooters at subsidized prices in different states of India.
