Key features

Ola Maps:This feature enables a faster and more accurate search function with improved routing. The redesigned user interface allows riders to access essential features without leaving the navigation screen.

Enhanced features:The users will also benefit from a better riding experience with significant improvements to ‘Hill Descent Control’ and the introduction of ‘Cruise Control in eco-mode’.

Users can also view ride metrics and charging and riding-based energy insights for improving energy efficiency and range. The CApp now offers a ‘Dark Mode’ option and convenient phone widgets for quick access to key scooter information and commonly used actions.

Ownership experience: The upgrade brings features like Geofencing and Timefencing to enable users to define specific operating areas and timeframes for the scooter, while the ability to limit ride modes ensures safe and appropriate usage for secondary users of the scooter. ‘Tamper Detection’ and ‘Fall Detection’ powered by AI, alerts users on the CApp in real-time if unauthorized tampering or a fall is detected.
