The electric scooters also come with a Battery Management System that "actively monitors the battery for optimal durability, performance, range and safety." Ola Electric has gotten rid of a physical key and it automatically locks and unlocks when the paired phone — acting as the digital key — is close by.

The 7-inch touchscreen display comes with multiple microphones, AI speech recognition algorithms, and runs MoveOS — built by Ola Electric. The company is touting The vehicle control unit (VCU) that is powered by an octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM, featuring 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity. The electric scooter's sound can be configured and comes in four modes at launch — Bolt, Care, Vintage, and Wonder. There is also a voice-command feature that allows the rider to complete tasks without physically navigating the touchscreen.

The company has also added a bunch of safety features on the Ola Scooter that include an anti-theft alert system, geo-fencing, and a battery that is flame retardant as well as being water and dust resistant. There are 110/70 R12 tyres on both corners with a rear mono-shock suspension and a front single fork suspension.

Along with the front and rear disk brakes, there is also a Hill-Hold feature on the Ola S1 Pro. Additionally, the electric scooter also gets a Reverse mode by turning the throttle in the opposite direction.
