Ola S1 Pro is one of the hottest-selling electric scooters in the Indian electric vehicle (EV) and claims to have strong performance and a decent three-figure range to help its cause. With the introduction of Move OS 2.0, the already tech-heavy electric scooter is promising to offer a connected ride experience with the ease of mobile phone pairing for a variety of functions.

But while a software-heavy electric scooter can indeed have a load of bragging rights, the essential measure of any product on wheels is in how it rides. The Ola S1 Pro gets a 3.97 kWh battery pack and has a claimed real-world range of 131 kms. With multiple ride modes on offer - Eco, Normal, Sport and Hyper, the Ola S1 Pro can also go seriously fast with a top speed of 115 kmph.

In our week-long experience with the Ola S1 Pro with the latest Move OS 2.0, there were several key takeaways over around 250 kms of mobility. The biggest is that it is indeed possible to extract over 100 kms of range in Normal mode which offers a good balance between range and performance. The company does not recommend riding in Eco mode for prolonged periods and the speed is limited to around 40 kmph for the sake of range.

The Ola S1 Pro is a great option in a growing list of options of electric scooters. It has some great performance and a credible real-world range. While there have been several instances of software malfunction and body panel gaps, apart from one fire incident as well, Ola Electric says it is working overtime to iron out all existing issues. Further, the company claims that all its electric scooters undergo rigorous tests and that the waiting period for the e-scooter is also significantly down now from before. Will the introduction of Move OS 2.0 help matters further? The signs sure do say yes.

Much like how one would connect a smartphone with a Bluetooth speaker, the Ola S1 Pro can be paired with a phone to stream music through its in-built speakers. Just go into the settings tab on the scooter screen and look for Bluetooth, and then connect your device. If you have already paired the smartphone to lock and unlock the scooter, this step need not be done again.

There is a dedicated button on the right with an R symbol. Press this once. The scooter issues an audio beep signal and the screen shows Reverse mode is active. To go back, twist the throttle forward - opposite to the conventional side. To deactivate, press the R button once again.

Once and only when the screen is active, press the on-screen button in the middle bottom. To lock the trunk, simply shut the seat tightly till an audio signal is sounded.
