    Ola MoveOS 3.0 update: details

    The MoveOS 3 update brings with it many features that were promised much earlier, including hill-hold assist, moods, proximity alert and regenerative braking. But the most important feature now added to the S1 scooter line-up is the addition of fast-charging capability. Ola claims that when plugged into a fast-charger the S1 e-scooters can amass nearly a 50km range in just 15 minutes. 

    There are currently three moods to choose from – Bolt, Vintage and Eclipse – which alter the visual theme on the TFT dash as well as the sound emitted from the onboard speakers. The proximity alert enables the scooter to ‘sense’ when you approach it and will automatically unlock itself. With the MoveOS 3.0 update, Ola claims the scooter can go for more than 200 days without being charged, when put on ‘Vacation’ mode. 

    Through profile sharing, the electric scooter can be shared with others without divulging the passcode (since the S1 e-scooters do not have a conventional key). One feature which hasn’t been seen before is the ‘Party’ mode, wherein lights on the scooter will flash in sync with any song you play. 

    Ola claims this update has also brought a faster touch response, lower battery usage during periods of non-usage, improved connectivity, faster home charging times and a more accurate estimate of the charging times. How much of that translates into the real world, we shall be testing soon, so stay tuned for that. 

    While most of these features are concentrated on the electronic side of things, there are a few which help improve the mechanical aspects as well. For starters, the much-awaited hill-hold feature will allow you to rest on an inclined surface with just a tap of the brake lever. In fact, the S1 e-scooter can now sense when it is on an incline and automatically applies the brakes. Another feature is the addition of three levels of regenerative braking, which increase the regen functionality progressively allowing you to accumulate the energy you use while slowing down to incrementally charge the battery.
