Ola S1 Pro currently uses a 3.97 kWh battery. Which the company says lets the scooter go 180km on a single charge. Riders have also noted that after the MoveOS 2.0 update. They could get 300 km of range on a single charge while riding in Eco mode.
CEO of Ola Electric Bhavish Aggarwal recently posted a video of an Ola-branded phone on Twitter. The cell the first battery cell made by the company itself. The CEO says that the company has a lot more to offer in terms of battery tech.
The battery pack for Ola Electric comes from LG Chem Korea and has a capacity of 3.97 kWh. This battery pack has 224 NMC cells, which are made of lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide. This done with two sets of 112 unit cells. The whole battery pack also has other parts, like connecting buses and various sensors that can measure, analyze, and do other things.
Now, it’s thought that Ola Electric could be looking into ways to do development and manufacturing in-house. This could help the company keep production costs low, be less affected by supply chain problems. Better handle new ideas and future growth. This important because Ola Electric interested in a long time in making an affordable scooter with a Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery cell. LFP cells are more stable and cost less to make.
Details about the Ola battery
Details about the Ola battery, like how much energy it can hold and how it works, are still unknown. But the company may start by making licensed battery technology in-house before moving on to other, newer technologies. There are some similarities between this plan and what Tesla did with the Tesla Model 3. Tesla first got a license to use Panasonic’s 18mm-diameter, 650mm-tall cells for the car. These cells also called 18,650 cells. Later, it changed so that it could make 21,700 cells (21mm in diameter and 700mm tall) for the Model 3 on its own.
