With a top speed of 115 km/h and a range of up to 181 km on a single charge, the S1 Pro is one of the most powerful and efficient electric scooters on the market. However, it has now been discovered that the scooter’s battery pack costs a staggering Rs. 87,298, which is a significant portion of the scooter’s total cost.

Of these, only the battery pack is 1,000 won. 87,298, or about 68% of the total cost.

Battery Range and Prices

The high cost of battery packs has raised concerns among potential customers who are already hesitant to switch to electric vehicles because of the high initial cost. The Ola S1 Pro costs Rs. At 1,28,373 (ex-showroom), it’s significantly higher than its main competitor, the Ather 450X (Rs). 1,29,990 (all showrooms). However, the Ather 450X has a smaller battery pack and lower range.

Ola S1 Pro’s high cost

Despite the Ola S1 Pro’s high cost, the company has received over one million pre-orders for the electric scooter within the first 24 hours of launch, indicating a growing interest in electric vehicles in India. However, it remains to be seen whether the high cost of battery packs will discourage potential customers from purchasing the scooter.
