Default Okinawa Ridge electric scooter launched in India at Rs. 43,702

Okinawa Autotech has launched its first electric scooter in the Indian market. Called the Ridge, the scooter is priced at Rs. 43,702 (ex-showroom Delhi). Okinawa Autotech Pvt. Ltd is an e-automobile manufacturer with a manufacturing facility in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, and headquarters in Gurgaon.

The Okinawa Ridge is available in four colour options: red, green-gold, red-white and white. It gets telescopic suspension at the front, alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. Braking duties are handled by drum brakes at the front as well as rear. It has a company-claimed loading capacity of 150 kg. Features on offer with the Ridge electric scooter include anti-theft alarm, digital speedometer, EABS and two driving modes - Eco and Power.

The Ridge is powered by a 60V VRLA battery which generates a peak power of 800 watt. The company claims that the scooter can deliver a range of 80 km - 90 km on a single charge. The scooter takes 4-6 hours to charge, while there is an optional fast charge option as well that completes the charge in 1-2 hours.

Currently, Okinawa Autotech has 24 dealers in total, spread over 5 states: Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh and Punjab. The company is reportedly planning to expand this number to 450 dealerships in the next three years. The company has also announced an investment of Rs. 270-275 crore in India, over a period of three years. Additionally, two more Okinawa products will be launched in the country by the end of this year. The company has indicated that it will also be launching electric bikes in the near future.

"Okinawa", Hmmm, that sounds Japanese..

Visited their site, gives the impression that its certainly NOT Japanese.

Any takers for Okinawa Scooters?

800W power, 60-80 km per charge, maybe a top speed of 40kmph, INR 45-50000, average looking.

Most manufacturers have always come with this standard set of specs and have failed miserably. Wonder why companies keep .

For Electric Scooters to gain acceptance, there should be a break through in at least one of the above parameters. Either the price should drop way below regular scooters or the range should increase drastically or there should be some other USP which attracts buyers. The thought is good though and wish them all the best.

Poor website, could not navigate to a page with the full specs.

This is actually a Chinese Electric Scooter and I am guessing they must have secured the manufacturing & selling rights for India. So its just the brand name which has any affiliation to Japan.
