Okinawa Okhi90 e-scooter launched in India at Rs. 1.2 lakh
Homegrown automaker Okinawa has launched a new electric scooter, the Okhi90, in India. It is priced at Rs. 1.22 lakh but will be cheaper when state subsidies are factored in. The two-wheeler can be pre-booked either online or offline by paying a token amount of Rs. 2,000. The Okhi90 has a strong design language and is longer than other e-scooters from the manufacturer.
- Okinawa is not a newcomer in the Indian EV space. In fact, it has an interesting line-up of electric scooters in its stable. However, the company has launched the Okhi90 to take on the more formidable rivals like Ola S1 Pro and Ather 450X.
- The company aims to carve out a larger market share with the new Okhi90.
The Okinawa Okhi90 features an indicator-mounted front apron, a stepped-up seat with a pillion grab rail, a flat footboard, an LED headlamp with light sensors, and chromed mirrors. The scooter offers a digital instrument cluster, a key-less start function, and rides on segment-first 16-inch alloy wheels. It is offered in Glossy Wine Red, Glossy Pearl White, Glossy Ash Gray, and Glossy Jewellery Blue colors.
The Okinawa Okhi90 is fueled by a 3.8kW electric motor paired to a 3.6kWh detachable Lithium-ion battery pack. The scooter sprints from 0-90km/h in 10 seconds and attains a top-speed of 85-90km/h in Sports mode. It promises a range of 160km per charge.
To ensure the rider's safety, the Okinawa Okhi90 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with features like Find My Vehicle, Speeding Alerts, and Side Stand Sensor. Suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and dual shock absorbers on the rear side.
In India, the Okinawa Okhi90 electric scooter is priced at Rs. 1.22 (ex-showroom) post FAME II subsidy. The price will be reduced further after state-wise subsidies are factored in.
