    Today's big news from Ola Electric is the launch of its new entry-level product, the S1 X. In addition to this though, it has also rolled out the second-gen S1 Pro, which is priced at Rs 1.48 lakh. The second-gen S1 Pro is built on the same Gen 2 platform that the new S1 X and S1 Air are based on.

    1. More power, higher claimed top speed
    2. Small increase in range claims
    3. Moves from single-sided suspension to conventional fork

    Ola S1 Pro Gen 2 power and performance

    Being built on the new platform, the company says it features a number of improvements over its debut product. The motor is one area of change – where it previously produced 5.5kW continuous and 8.5kW of peak output, it now makes 5kW continuous and 11kW peak output. As a result, the claimed top speed has risen from 116kph to 120kph, and the claimed 0-40kph acceleration time has dropped from 2.9 seconds to 2.6 seconds.

    Though its battery capacity remains the same, at 4kWh, Ola says it has made improvements to the battery pack as well as efficiency, and as a result, range numbers have seen a slight increase. Certified range has risen from 181km to 195km, and true range in Eco mode has gone up from 170km to 180km. Charging time, however, remains the same – 0-100 percent at 6.5 hours.

    Ola S1 Pro Gen 2 underpinnings

    There are also chassis changes that are part of the Gen 2 update, including the move from the single-sided front suspension to a conventional telescopic fork. The new frame also means that the spine section has disappeared and you now get a flat floorboard, as well as a slight weight reduction from 121kg to 116kg. The one negative here is that boot space has dropped by 2 litres, but the 34-litre boot is still seriously large.

    Ola S1 Pro Gen 2 price, deliveries

    The second-gen S1 Pro Rs 1.48 lakh price is Rs 8,000 more than the first-gen machine. Bookings are open from today, with deliveries slated to begin from mid-September, as per Ola.
