Okinawa Autotech is a Gurugram-based electric scooter manufacturer that has already launched a few of its products in the country. Now, there’s another Okinawa called the PraisePro which has just been launched at Rs 71,990 and sits just below the company’s flagship model, the iPraise.
Speaking about the launch, Jeetender Sharma, Founder & MD, Okinawa Autotech said, “PraisePro will cater to the mass market since it is competitive in terms of price, aesthetics, range and best in the segment with value for money. The detachable lithium-ion batteries will address the issues related to battery charging and the time consumed for the same. The product will cater to the daily commuting needs of office goers and the families. Our scooters are also being used by delivery service platforms and the new PraisePro too has received a very good response from the B2B segment.”
Okinawa PraisePro has a 1 kW (rated)/2.5 kW (peak) DC motor which is powered by a detachable 2 kWh lithium-ion battery. The electric scooter has a top speed of 30-35km/h and can cover a distance of approx 110km in economy mode. There’s a sport mode as well which reduces the range to 88km. And the most powerful mode is the Turbo mode whose range is yet to be announced by the company. Perhaps, regenerative braking would help in increasing the range a little.
Since the PraisePro would mostly be used by consumers for daily commuting, Okinawa has also provided 7-litre under-seat storage space. The electric scooter has a loading capacity of 150kg and 175mm of ground clearance. So it should be able to handle our roads. For safety, it gets e-ABS as standard.
Some of the other interesting features of the PraisePro include Central Locking with Anti-theft Alarm, Keyless Entry, Find My Scooter Function, USB Port, Motor Walking Assist (Front/Reverse Motion). For colour options, it gets glossy red black and glossy sparkle black.
