Okinawa products will now be equipped with lithium-ion battery packs
Okinawa has announced that it will discontinue the use of Lead Acid batteries in its electric two-wheelers going forward. It will switch to using lithium-ion batteries for its EVs.
Okinawa started its journey in the country with the lead-acid scooter Okinawa Ridge and had later introduced four lead-acid scooters in three years.
Since inception, Okinawa has retailed more than 34,000 units of Lead Acid based electric scooters in India. In total, the brand has sold over 74,500 units and plans to target selling around 90,000 units by the end of the fiscal year.
"We are shifting to 100 percent lithium-ion battery pack based two-wheelers. When we launched the brand, lead acid was the most advanced option available in the market. Now with rigorous growth of the industry and the brand, we have taken a step ahead and have discontinued lead-acid battery pack-based products.”
“Not only will Okinawa products be equipped with lithium-ion battery packs offering efficiency, but they will also come with detachable batteries ensuring convenience to the users," said Jeetender Sharma - MD and Founder, Okinawa.
