Ola Electric began deliveries of the S1 Pro in December this year and announced that it had already shipped over 4,000 units to 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 reserved the S1 to the S1 Pro. Priced at ₹30,000 apart, customers get the larger 3.97kWh battery on the S1 Pro as opposed to the 2.98kWh battery on the standard S1. However, customers will need to pay the amount of the difference to unlock the features and range of the software.
