Ola S1 Pro vs TVS iQube ST: Which Electric Scooter Offers Better Value?

Ola S1 Pro costs Rs 55k less than iQube ST, yet it has 42 kmph higher top speed

Indian two-wheeler manufacturer TVS recently introduced the iQube ST as its flagship model. Following much anticipation, it comes with a price tag of ₹1.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Many people considered the price outrageous since its main competitor, the Ola S1 Pro, is priced significantly lower at ₹1.30 lakh.

Also, Ola Electric provides benefits and exclusive deals from time to time to its prospective customers. Last month, the company offered savings of up to Rs 15,000 on its S1 range.

So, with such a high price tag, is the iQube ST a better option than Ola S1 Pro?

The TVS iQube ST features the biggest battery pack in its category. Although it is quick, the electric scooter does not come close to matching the agility and dynamism of the S1 Pro.

The S1 Pro accelerates faster from 0-40 kmph. Furthermore, it boasts the higher speed in its class, reaching up to 120 kmph.

In this aspect, the TVS iQube ST proves to be a practical choice. It benefits from a larger battery and has the less charging time, thanks to its 950W charger. On the other hand, despite receiving a 750W charger, the S1 Pro does not improve its position with a faster charging time.

On paper, the Ola S1 Pro appears larger. Nevertheless, the iQube has a spacious seat, whereas the Ola scooter, with its compact design, has a smaller seating area.

With its largest battery pack, the iQube ST is among the weightiest in its category. Additionally, it boasts lower ground clearance. However, it’s important to emphasize that these factors don’t significantly impact real-world performance.

TVS provides just two ride modes.


Both electric scooters feature multiple features since they are flagship models in their respective ranges. To begin with, both scooters have an LED lighting system and fully digital 7-inch instrument clusters.

Furthermore, they support Bluetooth connectivity via smartphones, offering features like call, SMS alerts, and music control. Although the tyre pressure monitoring system is a standard feature on the iQube ST, the feature is absent from the S1 Pro.

However, Ola continues to offer all three ride modes – Hyper, Eco, and Sport – with the S1 Pro. Meanwhile, TVS has opted for an economical approach, providing just two ride modes – Sports and Eco.


If you’re looking for a comprehensive package offering functionality, a wide range of features, and an affordable price tag, the Ola S1 Pro is an excellent choice. However, it is not without its flaws, as evidenced by several customer complaints on social media platforms.

The TVS iQube ST also offers substantial storage capacity and a range of features. However, it is one of the most expensive scooters in its category. Nonetheless, if you can increase your budget slightly, the newly introduced iQube ST could be a worthwhile consideration. Therefore, assess your choices thoughtfully.
