Uttar Pradesh, the largest state in the country, has emerged as a high-demand market for electric two-wheelers. Okinawa Auotech, which revealed its electric scooters earlier this year, is keen to caoitalise on this opportunity.
Okinawa’s Ridge e-scooter, which has a top speed of 55kph, can travel 80-90 hours on a single charge which takes 4-6 hours. The company claims it is working on a future e-scooter which will have a 200km range.
Speaking on the expansion of operations in Lucknow, Jeetender Sharma, managing director, Okinawa Scooters said, “Our vision is to be a leading electric two-wheeler manufacturer by offering a solution to the daily commuting needs of the average Indian. Uttar Pradesh, being the heart of the country with a high population density and a propensity for two-wheelers, fits our ideal market specifications. We already have Okinawa dealers and distributors in UP, and aim to expand our network across this bustling state and empower all our stakeholders through products that add to their lifestyle without subtracting anything from the environment.”
“Our detailed state-wise expansion plan has been implemented and we will be following up with various e-scooter models which have unique features such as accident detection, app-enabled vehicle maintenance, and smart controller-based road positioning,", he added.
