So, with the new purchase window open for 21st & 22nd of May, Ola Electric have now hiked the asking price of the S1 Pro electric scooter by Rs.10,000/-, pushing it to Rs. 1.39 Lakh (ex-showroom, excluding the Fame-II subsidy). This price hike was announced (tweeted) by Mr. Bhavish Aggarwal (CEO, Ola Electric) on Twitter back in March along with announcing a new limited edition ‘Gerua’ colour on the occasion of Holi festival.
But, what irks many customers is the fact that this price hike applies to existing as well as new customers alike, including those customers who booked the electric scooter well before the new price hike was announced.

10 Free ‘Gerua’ S1 Pro offered free on achieving range more than 200 km range
Ola Electric is about to launch the official update – MoveOS 2 – in coming months and have opened the Beta version of the new OS to interested Ola electric scooter owners.
The new MoveOS 2 OTA update promises to offer numerous bug fixes, better navigation, new improvements and some more features. The most highlighting feature coming to all S1 electric scooters is the new ECO mode which the company claims will improve the mileage of the scooters to better match their claimed range numbers.
So to promote the features of new scooters and grab as many eyeballs as possible, the company has started a new contest where there are willing to offer 10 free Gerua coloured Ola S1 Pro electric scooters to those owners who can achieve more than 200 km range on a single charge from their scooters.
It all started when one owner by the name of Karthik was able to achieve this magical number and was gifted the special Gerua coloured S1 Pro e-scooter by Mr. Aggarwal himself. This led to other owners to request extension of this contest and numerous owners attempting to break the magical number mark to bag the free scooter.
The lucky 10 owners who will be able to break the mileage record on their electric scooters will be handed the free Gerua S1 Pro electric scooter at a special event which will be conducted at the FutureFactory in June 2022.
