EV market is at its initial stage in India and Okinawa Autotech is trying to set the standards in Indian EV market. Okinawa made its debut in the EV market by launching the entry-level product called “Ridge”. Now, company has launched its flagship- Okinawa Praise.

Okinawa claims that Battery can be fully charged within the time frame of 6-8 Hours and Praise can get a range of approximately 200 KM in a single charge which is quiet impressive.
Praise comes with 3 driving modes called Eco, Sporty and Turbo. We have seen this kind feature in a scooter for the very first time. In Eco mode, top speed will be limited to 35kmph. With Sporty mode, rider can go up to the speed of 65kmph and Turbo Mode concentrates on power and gives a maximum speed of 75 kmph which is very impressive if we look the current E-scooters available in the market.
On Design perspective, Praise e-scooter gets full marks. With its sporty design Okinawa praise can easily catch the attention of Indian Youth and can meet the expectations of Indian scooter market. Its gets a Premium Plastic body with a sporty and attractive LED headlamp with Daytime running headlights. On the backside, it gets a LED tail lamps and indicators. Praise also provide an ample space of 19.5 liters beneath the seat with glove box upfront. Telescopic forks on the front and twin shock absorbers on the back, are given the responsibilities to give the rider an enjoyable ride.
Okinawa praise is carrying a lots of techs and feature and setting the standards for new entrants in the EV market. Okinawa Praise is loaded with features like side stand sensor, anti-theft sensor, Keyless ignition, USB charging point with a Location tracking feature of vehicle.
When it comes to comes to power generation, it produces approximately 2500 watts of power and 40 nm of torque with the help of 1000 watt of mounted motor. Okinawa is also planning to introduce another version of its flagship in future which will be carrying a 45mAh Li-ion battery. Li-ion batteries are well known for their faster charging feature with less weigh as compared to other batteries. Li-ion battery can be charged within 2hours with quick charging feature. This will improve the overall performance of this flagship.
