Okinawa has informed that the plant in Bhiwadi will employ over 250 people in various functional areas and will help the company increase its production capacity which is currently 1,80,000 units per year from the first facility located in Alwar. The company is focusing on expanding customer touchpoints in metro cities as well as in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.
In the upcoming scooters, some models are also being designed for the general consumer. The range includes the much awaited maxi scooter of the company. These scooters will be launched in the premium electric scooter segment, which will provide much more range and performance than normal electric scooters.
Okinawa has said that the electric bike OK100 has the same capacity as the 150 cc bike. This bike can compete with the Revolt RV400, while the electric maxi scooter will compete with the performance scooters of other companies.
Recently Okinawa has announced the discontinuation of models with acid batteries. Now the company will only sell lithium-ion models. The company said that technology has improved over time and now the use of lead acid batteries has been discontinued. Lithium ion batteries are technologically more advanced and easier to use than lead acid.
Okinawa launched the two-wheeler exchange program only last month. Under this, the company will buy old two-wheeler petrol vehicles and instead give discounts on new electric scooters. This offer has been started in Ahmedabad, Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Bangalore and Pune.
Okinawa has partnered with CredR to fix the purchase price of the used two-wheeler. To find out the resale value of your used bikes and scooters, one has to go to Okinawa’s website and enter the two-wheeler information, after which the company quotes the resale value of the old two-wheeler.
However, to ascertain the final resale value, customers will have to bring their old two-wheeler to the Okinawa showroom. Here the resale value of the vehicles will be determined after examining them.
