Move OS 3 features at a glance
The Move OS 3 update brings some big upgrades to the Ola electric scooters. The update enables the support for Ola’s Hypercharger network, which will allow riders to quickly top-up the battery; 50 kms of range in 15 minutes. Riders can look for the Hyperchargers in their cities and navigate to it to do a quick top-up.
The update also brings other driving features such as hill-hold assist and regenerative braking modes. Riders can also unlock their scooters using the proximity alert mode. There are three moods on the dash screen to take advantage of – Bolt, Vintage, and Eclipse, all of which change the speedo design and sound from the onboard speakers. A new Vacation mode allows the scooter to preserve the battery by disconnecting it from the circuit.
Riders can also share the passcode with their family members, and there is a new Party Mode that flash the scooter’s lights in sync with the music playing via the onboard speakers. The update also improves the display’s touch response, better connectivity, faster home charging speeds, and accurate estimation of charging times.
