The Ola Electric app will receive the new MoveOS 2 update

The new OTA update will introduce Eco mode which will provide a range of around 170 km.

Ola Electric is preparing to roll out new MoveOS 2 updates to its Ola Electric app for S1 and S1 Pro scooters. This is the first major over-the-air (OTA) update since the launch of their electric scooters in August last year.

On a microblogging platform, Ola Electric Founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal posted a video showing a preview of what to expect from the latest update and new features that electric scooters previously lacked . Apart from this, Ola Electric is also planning to introduce a new driving mode in the MoveOS 2 update which is supposed to be ideal for city traffic conditions.

Aggarwal confirmed that the new OTA update is ready to roll, tweeting, “Ok! So we have the Ola Electric app ready for MoveOS 2″, and it should be released by the end of April.

The new OTA update of the Ola Electric app will allow riders to lock and unlock the e-scooter from their mobile phone. It also unlocks the saddle to provide access to the 36 liters of underseat storage. The new operating system will also offer Bluetooth connectivity and a navigation system, aiming to make it a seamless experience for the rider.

The MoveOS 2 will introduce a new driving mode, Eco mode. According to Aggarwal, at 45 km/h or less, the electric scooter will return to a range of around 170 km. The Ola Electric app will also offer cruise control, but there’s still no mention of hill-hold control. The company hasn’t revealed all the features of the OS update, so we’ll have to wait and see what all is finally offered.

Along with the OS update, the S1 version will receive features that were previously only available in the top variant S1 Pro.

Ola Electric continues to offer two variants – S1 and S1 Pro. Both electric scooters are powered by an 8.5 kW mid-drive IPM motor, which technically makes them one of the most powerful electric two-wheelers on the market today. The entry-level version S1 gets a 2.98 kWh battery while the S1 Pro has a larger 3.97 battery.
