Ola Electric scooters are always in the news. People have both positive and negative things to say about different parts of the scooter. As part of its marketing plan, Ola Electric said it will give away 10 more S1 Pro electric scooters to customers whose scooters can travel more than 200 km on a single charge. He even gave some customers scooters as gifts when they reached 200 km on a single charge. It looks like customers have taken things to the next level and are now saying that the scooter can go 300 km on a single charge.
Two of these customers have talked about how they got their Ola S1 Pro scooters to go more than 300 km. That, too, with only one charge. Satendra Yadav was the first person to buy an Ola S1 pro electric scooter. The car’s owner posted a picture of the fully digital dashboard on Twitter. The display shows that the scooter has gone 300 km and that it still has 5% of its battery power. In this experiment, the rider’s average speed was 20 km/h, and his fastest speed was only 38 km/h.
The display’s riding stats start over every day, so it was hard for the rider to reach 300 kmph before midnight. In the tweet, he says that he was able to take the picture just seconds before midnight. On the display, you can also see the time. In the tweet, it doesn’t say how the rider was able to do this.
The range of the Ola S1 Pro electric scooter is said to be 180 km, but some customers have gone over 300 km.
Jigar Bharda is the next person to own an Ola S1 Pro. He was able to drive 303 km on a single charge. He has given a lot more information about how this experiment turned out. He started the ride at 1:00 a.m. with a full battery. At 12:11 p.m., he sends an update saying that the constant rain, the cool weather, and the cruise control have helped him get a good range. He had gone 185 km in Normal mode, and there was still 64% of the battery left.
He also says that he rarely used the brakes and mostly used the regen. He also wasn’t using Bluetooth, and the screen brightness was very low. All of these use up energy, which decreases the range. At 6:27 PM, after a 17-hour drive, he was able to finish with only 4% charge left. During the test, he even switched between the drive modes.
The CEO of Ola Electric, Bhavish Aggarwal, has not yet replied to the tweets. He will be a lot happier than he was when people hit 200 kmph. Ola is now working on electric cars after making electric scooters. They showed a few teaser pictures of what their new electric cars might look like. Ola has posted three teasers, which suggest that the company is making more than one model. At the moment, there are no more details about the electric car. It will be shared later, as the work moves forward.
