This is not the first time that this issue has been reported online. Earlier, there have been reports where the front suspension broke after hitting a pothole or a speed breaker. Needless to say that this can be very dangerous.

Ola Electric has already faced a lot of criticism for having quality issues with its scooters. There were glitches and software errors, most of which the manufacturer solved by pushing a software update and with MoveOS 2. Moreover, the build quality is still questionable with panel gaps and the rubber mats not fitting well. Because the S1 Pro and S1 are fairly new to the market, it is still not known how well they age after taking the abuse of being used daily on our Indian roads.

The manufacturer is now working on rolling out MoveOS 3 for its electric scooters. It will be launched on Diwali, this year. Ola has started releasing teasers of the features that will be launched with the update. There will be acceleration sounds and probably some kind of Party mode feature. Ola might also launch a more affordable electric scooter and accessories.
