It gets two riding modes, Eco and Sport. The company claims a maximum riding range of 160 km in the Sport mode while in the Eco mode it is claimed to offer up to 200 km on a single charge. It has a massive boot space of 40 litres and is the first scooter in India to ride on 16-inch wheels.
In terms of features, the Okhi 90 gets an all-digital LCD instrument cluster in its base variant while the top-spec variant gets a TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. The price of the base variant hasn’t been revealed yet but the company sources told us that it will be Rs 4,000 – Rs 5,000 cheaper than the top model. The Okinawa Okhi 90 features a knob-style automatic keyless start, a USB charger in the boot, etc. Also, this electric scooter has a top speed of 90 kmph and its charging time from 0 to 100 per cent is claimed to be 3-4 hours.
The Gurugram-based company, set up in 2015, sold almost 1 lakh units in the outgoing fiscal, making it the second-largest EV scooter maker in the country.
Since its commercial launch in January 2017, Okinawa has sold 1.5 lakh units so far, he said. With attractive pricing, Sharma expects that the Okhi-90 model would help the company gain volume and take on the rival companies faster.
The company has exhausted its 90,000 units per annum plant at Bhiwandi in Rajasthan and is on course to commission its second 3 lakh units plant shortly.
