Ola S1 Air electric scooter was revealed on Saturday as the third variant in the S1 series from Ola Electric. It is the most-affordable Ola Electric scooter and while it does have a lesser range than the Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro, it is primarily targeted at conventional scooters which run on petrol and have a similar price point.

Ola Electric has repeatedly underlined its efforts to not just fight off challenge from an array of electric scooter makers but bring down the dominance of conventional scooters like Honda Activa, TVS Jupiter, Suzuki Access, Yamaha Fascino, among others. But while the electric battery means running cost is significantly cheaper, electric scooters are often pricier despite subsidies. This is now what Ola S1 Air is targeting and at 85,000 ( 79,999 for those booking on or before Monday - Diwali), could potentially find far more takers than many other alternatives.
