As part of the recall program, the company will examine the scooters’ battery, connectors and wiring, among other electronic components. According to the company, this verification process is free for Praz Pro customers. Customer can contact the nearest dealership or service center in Okinawa for the recall.
In an official statement, Okinawa said, “The company is dedicated to the safety of its customers and does not want to make any mistakes. This voluntary recall campaign is being conducted to test and make Okinawa Praise Pro e-scooters more secure. Used to be.”
It is expected that like Okinawa, other manufacturers may also announce a recall of their affected electric scooter models to keep the customer trust in them. In the last two weeks, about half a dozen cases of electric scooters being set on fire in different parts of the country have been reported. These incidents have shocked customers planning to buy electric scooters and raised questions about the safety of electric scooters.
Experts believe that such incidents are very bad news for the electric vehicle industry. This may slow down the pace of the rapidly growing electric vehicle industry in India. Explain that the Central Government’s Fire Explosive and Environment Agency (CFEEA) has sent notices to electric vehicle manufacturers to find out the cause of fire in vehicles.
At the same time, the Ministry of Road and Transport has directed the CFEEA to suggest measures to prevent such incidents. Apart from the cases of fire, electric scooter customers are facing many other problems. These include poor build quality of the scooter, software failure, quick discharge, etc.
Let us inform that in the last two weeks, cases of electric scooters of Ola Electric, Okinawa, Pure EV and Jitendra Electric Vehicles have been reported today. Many videos of these electric scooters catching fire are becoming viral on social media, to which people are giving their feedback. Recently, Ola Electric CEO, Bhavish Agarwal met Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to discuss the matter.
