I'm almost certain that it's because of the ambient temperature. My battery temperature constantly shows 35C for the past 1-2 months, while previously it'd show somewhere around 30-33C.

Hi Hitesh, from what I understand this 'Performance update' isn't really an add-on and it's the same case with Ather. This is another loophole to get the ex showroom price under a limit specified by subsidy norms. Honestly nobody knows what is actually upgraded with this package. If I'm right the companies quote this as an extra to keep the effective exshowrrom under the subsidy eligibility threshold and then push this 'optional' pack as standard with no way to opt out. I've seen some tweets from people complaining that there's no way to opt out of performance upgrade.

So they are also not exactly sure about the process.
I'm surprised too but it all comes down to usage pattern and environmental factors so I suppose it will perform as intended if I wish to adhere proper EV driving techniques, which I may try once the climate becomes a bit colder.
And regarding the process to opt out of performance upgrade, I think they aren't sure about the process because they have no such process. I've tried to dig the booking window and there's no window that has an option to select/deselect performance upgrade.

I have received an email too, and I have submitted my claim let's see how long they take for this one. If they refund it sooner, then the value for money factor with our S1 Pros is insane. The total cost of my scooter was around 1.4lacs including insurance and if you less somewhere around 10k India's fastest gearless scooter with more features than a brand new Citron C3 is just 10-15k more expensive than an Activa 6G or just a little expensive compared to Ntorq race edition
It'll be interesting to see how EV2W sales drop after June 1st because the government decided to wakeup and hit hard with lesser subsidy benefits.

Re: Ola S1 Electric Scooter Review

Its such a good looking scooter, design language makes it look very coherent and futuristic.

I wish it was little wider though, as it looks puny because of narrow body.
