Ola S1 Pro electric scooter to offer navigation, cruise control features soon
Ola Electric will soon add some of the previously highlighted features in its electric scooters S1 and S1 Pro. The electric two-wheeler manufacturer is all set to roll out one of its first major over-the-air (OTA) updates for the S1 and S1 Pro models after they were launched back in August last year. Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO at Ola Electric, shared this information today. He said the updated features will include the likes of navigation and cruise control in these electric scooters.
Aggarwal took to Twitter this morning to say, “MoveOS 2.0 almost ready and coming end April to everyone. Key features: navigation, companion app, cruise control, bluetooth, lots of performance improvements and more."
Earlier, several Ola Electric customers complained about the software in some of the scooters already delivered. Some of the features that customers felt was sorely missed was the cruise control and bluetooth functionalities. The addition of these features are expected to be updated further in later OTA updates. When launched, Ola had also promised some other key features like hill hold control and Hyper Mode in S1 Pro electric scooters. Varun Dubey, chief marketing officer at Ola Electric had assured recently that most of these updates will be available before June this year.
