    Ola Electric will only begin production of the base S1 variant e-scooter in late 2022.

    Ola Electric recently announced that it would be upgrading all S1 customers to a restricted version of the S1 Pro. Customers would then have the option to continue using the scooter in restricted form or unlock the S1 Pro’s additional features and performance for a cost of Rs 30,000.

    The company has now sent emails to S1 buyers indicating that it will indeed be producing the base S1 e-scooter, but only in late-2022. The company says that the vast majority of its orders are for the S1 Pro, and therefore it is prioritising S1 Pro production instead. Until such time as the S1’s production begins, the company will continue providing S1 buyers with a restricted S1 Pro.

    The S1 gets a 2.98kWh battery pack that offers an ARAI-certified range of 121km, while the S1 Pro houses a 3.97kWh battery pack that promises 181km of ARAI-certified range. There is also a difference in top speed, with the S1 topping out at 90kph and the S1 Pro managing 115kph.
