Bengaluru-based Ola Electric recently rolled out the first major OTA (over the air) update for its S1 Pro electric scooters. Now, within a month of Move OS 2.0’s roll-out, the company’s CEO, Bhavish Aggarwal, took to Twitter to announce details about Move OS 3.0. Ola Electric plans to launch the new Move OS 3.0 software update for its S1 Pro electric scooters by Diwali 2022.
Aggarwal’s tweet reveals that with the Move OS 3.0 update, the Ola S1 Pro will get a bunch of hi-tech features, including hill hold control, proximity unlocks, moods (sounds produced by an EV just like an ICE vehicle), regenerative braking V2, hyper charging, calling functionality, key sharing, many new more. One can expect these features in the S1 Pro by October this year.
Moreover, Ola Electric’s CEO also posted a teaser video of the moods feature in the Move OS 3.0 which highlights the artificial exhaust note of the S1 Pro produced via the in-built speakers. It might turn out to be a useful safety feature. Last month, with the roll-out of the Move OS 2.0, the Ola S1 Pro got features like an Eco mode, Bluetooth-enabled Music System, cruise control, etc.
