Ola Electric cuts prices of S1 X range of e-scooters, to start from Rs 69,999





April 15 (IANS) Bhavish Aggarwal-led Ola Electric on Monday announced new prices for its S1 X range of e-scooters along with the delivery details.

Available in three battery configurations — 2 kWh (kilowatt-hour), 3 kWh, and 4 kWh, the S1 X portfolio will now be priced at Rs 69,999 (introductory price), Rs 84,999, and Rs 99,999, respectively. The deliveries will begin starting next week.


“Our S1 X portfolio now addresses the high upfront cost of electric vehicles (EVs) which is one of the major barriers to EV adoption. With new prices of S1 X and a wide product portfolio across all popular price points, we are confident of driving EV penetration further across the country,” an Ola spokesperson said in a statement.

In addition, the company announced new prices for S1 Pro, S1 Air, and S1 X+, which will be available at Rs 1,29,999, Rs 1,04,999, and Rs 84,999.

S1 X range of e-scooters offers an IDC-certified range of 190 km, 143 km, and 95 km in 4 kWh, 3 kWh, and 2 kWh models, respectively.

Powered by a 6kW (kilowatt) motor, the scooter offers a quick acceleration of 0-40 Km/h in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 90 kmph in 4kWh and 3kWh models, and 4.1 seconds and 85 kmph in the 2 kWh variant, as per the company.

The scooter has three riding modes — Eco, Normal, and Sports, and riders can switch between them seamlessly.

You’re right! Ola Electric did recently announce significant price cuts for their S1 X range of e-scooters. This is a big move in the Indian electric two-wheeler market, potentially making electric scooters more accessible to a wider range of consumers.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the new prices:

  • S1 X with 2 kWh battery: Rs 69,999 (introductory price)
  • S1 X with 3 kWh battery: Rs 84,999
  • S1 X with 4 kWh battery: Rs 99,999

This is a reduction of Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 compared to their previous prices. The most affordable option, the S1 X with a 2 kWh battery, is now even cheaper than some popular petrol scooters in India.

This move by Ola Electric could be a game-changer for electric scooter adoption in India. It shows that they are becoming more competitive with traditional petrol scooters on price.
