Leading EV brand Okinawa launches electric scooter in Lucknow; aims at 350 CR investment in India.

E-automobile manufacturer to produce and provide high-speed electric two-wheelers & expand its dealer and distributor network in the high-potential market

Lucknow, April 27, 2017: It’s often assumed that powerful inventions and the most efficient products must necessarily be a drain on natural resources and financially out of reach for many. This popular perception was asking for a much needed change, and powering this change, as its mission statement suggests, is Okinawa Autotech Pvt. Ltd. Emerging as the symbol of the sustainable transportation movement in India, Okinawa is India’s fastest growing and most disruptive e-automobile manufacturer, specializing in electric two wheelers. In it’s latest endeavour, Okinawa has launched its high-performance e-scooters in Lucknow, with a view to capture and further expand its well-established network in the high demand state of Uttar Pradesh. Through its dedicated efforts, Okinawa plans to extensively cover the dealer and distributor network in the high potential 2 wheeler market of UP. Through its power-packed, efficient, value-for-money and pollution-free vehicles, Okinawa plans to alter the belief that e-automobiles can’t match the power, speed and efficiency of traditional petrol vehicles.

Okinawa’s Ridge zero emission vehicle clock the speeds of 55+ km/hr. With only a normal charging duration of 4 – 6 hours it can cover a range of 80 -90 km/charge. Okinawa’s upcoming e-scooters can cover distances of almost 200 km/Charge. Buyers have the option of a fast mode of charging as well which does the trick and gets the vehicle up and running within 1-2 hours. Combined with the savings it generates through zero fuel and engine oil costs, Okinawa’s vehicles win hands down in any comparison with its peers, even those driven on conventional fuels, when it comes to sheer performance.

Uttar Pradesh has displayed a high demand for electric two-wheelers and Okinawa’s scooters are bound to capture the imagination of buyers in the state. It’s vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art technology that provides the best of performance and sustainability. Furthermore, these vehicles are fitted with unique utility features such as anti-theft alarm, speedometer, Central locking smart controller (with EABS) as well as an Eco and power mode of operations. These features are set to endear Okinawa’s vehicles further to the Indian consumers, who have already started warming up to the concept of e-automobiles.

In terms of looks and aesthetics, Okinawa’s latest product, Ridge, is a beautiful, aerodynamically designed scooter that will appeal to riders from the ages of 18-60 years. The scooter is available in eye-catching colour combinations of red, green-gold, red-white and white. Alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and telescopic suspension further empower the vehicle to handle any kind of terrain, whether they are the clogged roads of the cities or the barely-there roads of rural UP. With a loading capacity of 150 kg and under-the-seat storage, Ridge has also outperformed any other e-bike/scooter in its category in terms of visual effectiveness combined with utility. Considering the sustainability, ROI and environmental benefits it brings to the table, ‘Ridge’ soars above the rest with inimitable ease.

Commenting on the expansion of their operations in Lucknow, Mr. Jeetender Sharma, MD Okinawa Scooters said, “Being an Indian company, our vision is to be a leading electric two-wheeler manufacturer by offering a solution to the daily commuting needs of the average Indian. UP, being the heart of the country with a high population density and a propensity for two-wheelers, fits our ideal market specifications.
