Whereas all S1 scooters might be upgraded to S1 Professional {hardware} totally free, unlocking the total potential of that {hardware} will come at a value.

In a fairly uncommon transfer, it appears Ola Electrical might be upgrading all S1 patrons to the S1 Professional, however with a catch. Clients who booked the S1 will obtain a scooter geared up with {hardware} of the S1 Professional (most notably, the bigger battery pack).

However right here’s the catch. To unlock the total potential of that {hardware} and the additional options, specifically the upper vary, increased high velocity, increased charging charge, cruise management, Hyper mode, hill-hold help, and so forth, patrons should shell out an additional Rs 30,000 for a software program improve pack. This may successfully make it the identical financial outlay because the S1 Professional.

The software program on the scooters delivered to S1 patrons might be designed to throttle the highest velocity and charging charge, and it could even restrict the usable capability of the battery pack – an S1 buyer would solely be allowed to make use of the equal of two.98kWh of their battery pack, despite the fact that it has a capability of three.97kWh.

This appears barely unfair when you think about that they are going to be receiving a scooter that is 4kg heavier than promised, due to the bigger battery pack.

Ought to an S1 buyer select to pay the additional Rs 30,000 and unlock the additional options, Ola says it is going to be carried out through a software program replace.
