Ola s1 Air has only three driving mode reverse mode, Eco mode, and sports modes you may not get hyper mode in the air but with the s1 pro, you will get hyper mode with extra range.

The only reason is to make scooters affordable, ola removes hyper mode in its air variant.

Suspension & brake upgradations

Ola also focus on technical aspect also, ola upgrade both front & rear suspension, In front ola offers a twin fork & rear suspension, and it offers dual shock, a major change that ola has made in the air model.

But ola degraded braking system, it offers a drum brake instead hydraulic brake this is another con that I have found in the air variant.

Tires & dimension in Ola s1 Air

In Ola s1 air you will get 12 inches 90/90 tire that enhance its performance in off-roading, it has the same 1359 mm wheelbase and no changes can be done in dimensions.

but one thing is boot space, ola reduce 2 liters of boot space in the s1 Air, compared to both sibling you will get 36liter of boot space but the air has only 34 liters this is another con that I have found.

ola s1 Air: range also matters?

Ola s1 air you will get 101km of ARAI certified range which means you will get only 75km of a true range because the true range is 25km less than the ARAI range. (you should minus 25 with the ARAI range) ,

this is quite small at a range of 89, 000 ola should give a minimum of 120km of true range, this is another con that I have to compute.

TRUE RANGE = ARAI range – 25

Motor & charging time in ola s1 Air

Acceleration – ola s1 air cover 0-40km/h in 4.3 seconds.

Charging time – air variants required 4.5 hrs to get fully charged.

Motor power -2.7kw of nominal & 4.5kw peak motor power.

Ola offers 2.5kw of hub motor (hub motor – hub motor is a kind of motor which is directly connected to the wheel not connected to any chain & belt), this also enhances the design language of ola s1 air.

Booking detail
