Ever since its launch, Ola electric scooters have been in the news. There are both negative and positive reports related to the scooter and we have featured many of them on our website as well. One of the main issues that many people have reported related to the Ola scooter is that it does not generate enough power to do uphill sections. Several videos related to the same are available as well. Here we have a video where a Ola S1 Pro scooter owner tests his scooter by riding it through a rocky stream and uphill section. How did the scooter perform? Let’s find out.
The video has been uploaded by ANIL LKY on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger takes the scooter to a path which is normally filled with water because of the stream flowing through it. The path is filled with water deep enough to fully submerge the wheels of the scooter. Vlogger can be heard saying in the video that he has seen several video of where people have shown defects of Ola electric scooter and he wanted to check himself it these were true.
He starts the scooter and starts riding the scooter. Before riding the scooter through the stream, he came to the spot through an off-road trial. The scooter was performing well in this section. He gears up and starts riding the scooter right into the stream. The depth started increasing and the wheels were completely under water. Vlogger even stops in between and shows that the water level was at par with the floor board of the scooter. He was not riding fast through the stream. He was riding slowly as there were rocks lying on the bed of the stream.
He carefully rides the scooter and successfully reaches the other end of the path. The path was normally accessed using tractors as it was going to a farm. Vlogger came back after checking the farm and rode the electric scooter back through the same stream. He did not hurry and was taking his time to get the scooter out without falling. After coming out, he was very happy with the performance of the scooter and he was becoming a lot more confident about the product. After the scooter had successfully passed the water wading test, he started riding the scooter through an off-road path to show the scooter would perform.
Soon he joined a proper road and the uphill section started where he wanted to do his second test. The scooter was performing pretty well on the uphill sections. He mentions that he is riding the scooter in Normal mode and it is climbing up the section without any major issues. He even stops in the middle of the climb to see if the scooter can climb further. It did the same without breaking a sweat. The owner is very happy with the overall performance of the scooter and keeps on repeating in the video that he is riding the scooter in Normal mode and has not used the Sport or Hyper mode.
