Okinawa Okhi90 is going to compete with models like Ather 450X, Ola S1 Pro electric scooter in the Indian market. Currently, the company is the second largest selling electric scooter, but due to the absence of modern technology and long-range electric scooter, it has been brought. The company claims that the design of the scooter is inspired by a motorcycle, so the driving experience will be similar to that of a motorcycle.

The new plant, located in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, will help Okinawa expand its objective of local production.
