Ola Electric began deliveries of the S1 Pro in December of this year and announced that it has already shipped more than 4,000 units to its customers. However, more customers have yet to receive the scooters due to delays in the RTO registration process. The company, however, has not disclosed the total number of units sold so far. According to the Vahan database, around 476 vehicles have been registered so far in 2022, while around 238 vehicles have been registered in December 2021. This is a fraction of the 4,000 units shipped to customers.

Interestingly, Ola Electric automatically upgraded customers who booked the S1 to the S1 Pro. Priced at 30,000 intervals, customers get the larger 3.97 kWh battery on the S1 Pro as opposed to the 2.98 kWh battery on the standard S1. However, customers will have to pay the difference amount to unlock the functionality and range of the software.
