After the launch, Ola S1 Scooter and S1 pro have captured the market more than expected. While several consumers are very much satisfied with the product, there are many who are frustrated because of the recurring problems with the scooter. Recently we have seen a person who torched his Ola S1 Scooter out of frustration and uploaded the video on Twitter, and another consumer after losing his cool marshalled the scooter with a donkey tied in front. There are several others who have reported severe problems like complete breakdown, power cuts and range drops.
Embarrassing Moment For The Owner Of Ola S1 Scooter
After so many complaints the company tried to eradicate all these issues related to the power cuts and range drops by launching the 2.0 OS update. But another man had a bad day because of his Ola Electric Scooter as recorded and uploaded by Nirav Chawda on Twitter.
Video uploaded by him shows a man trying to start his Ola Scooter for almost half an hour. And not only this but the rider was stuck at the same spot while the scooter was honking uncontrollably. This was a very embarrassing moment for the consumer of Ola. Well, after patiently controlling his frustrated emotions for quite some time the owner called for a tow as he was not able to start it.
No further updates have been released on the matter, though it does seem like an OS or operating system issue. In response to these glitches occurring in Ola S1 and S1 Pro, the company has launched a new OS update to restrain these recurring issues. Some of the consumers are still yet to receive the update.
