Bookings have been opened across 200-plus authorised Okinawa dealerships in the country. Initially, only 500 bookings will be available and the company intends to deliver the same units in January 2019.

In fact, the charging time has been reduced to less than three hours compared to other products from Okinawa. Thanks to the Li-ion battery, the kerb weight has also been cut by 40% compared to those with Lead Acid batteries. On a full charge, the Okinawa i-Praise has a claimed range of 160 to 180 kilometres.
The Okinawa i-Praise is powered by a 1kW electric motor capable of giving a top speed of 75km/h. Features such as LED DRLs, e-ABS, USB port and anti-theft alarm is also part of the package. The expected price is in around Rs 71,000 ex-showroom (Delhi).
Jeetender Sharma, Founder & MD, Okinawa Scooters shared, "It gives us immense pleasure to announce the pre-booking of i-Praise #TheIntelligentScooter. We have channelized our engineering and manufacturing prowess to provide our users with a futuristic e-scooter that solves all their commuting woes. With the pre-bookings commencing from Dec 14 and only going on till the first 500 orders, we are looking forward to an affirmative response."
Thoughts On The New Okinawa i-Praise Electric Scooter
Okinawa Electric Scooters have already marked their presence in the Indian EV market, with a range of interesting products on offer. The two-wheeler market is slowly accepting cleaner and silent electric scooters, especially in urban areas. Whether the new Okinawa i-Praise will boost this even further is something we have to wait and see.
