Okinawa Scooters is set to launch its newest e-scooter,
the i-Praise in the Indian market for Rs 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom). The i-Praise
has already received 450 bookings in its pre-launch phase and will be available
in glossy red black, glossy golden black and glossy silver black. Deemed as
'The Intelligent Scooter', it comes with features like geo fencing, virtual
speed limiter, GPS, maintenance reminder and more.
Okinawa’s i-Praise boasts of several features including a
detachable lithium-ion battery. The battery used in i-Praise requires only a 5A
power socket, making it possible to recharge even in areas with inadequate
public support infrastructure for EVs. The e-scooter will have a range of
160-180 km/charge and a reasonable charging time of 2-3 hours and is going to
weigh 30-40% less than many of the other EVs in its category.
Elaborating further on the success of i-Praise booking,
Jeetender Sharma, MD, Okinawa Scooters, “The team at Okinawa has pulled out all
the stops to create a truly revolutionary product with i-Praise and we are
delighted to see the incredible response that the EV has received even in its
pre-launch phase. It is also a proud moment for us that an elite,
forward-looking organization such as the Indian Navy has become the first
customer for i-Praise. This not only demonstrates the strength of our product,
but also encourages us to continue with our vision to innovate and transform
the Indian automobile market.”
“As the e-scooter is officially unveiled in the Indian market,
we are certain that it will raise the benchmark for the industry as a whole and
create explosive growth in the adoption and acceptance of EVs across the
country. With its detachable lithium-ion batteries that compellingly address
the issues related to battery charging and the time consumed for the same, the
EV is also generating a massive demand in tier II and III cities which is a
great development,” he added.
