India's fastest growing electric two-wheeler manufacturer Okinawa has become the first electric two-wheeler brand to reach the 'roof of the world' as its e-scooter Praise completes a successful trip to Leh from Gurgaon.
Okinawa began a journey of ten days and 1,350km with ‘Praise'. The historic expedition was the first time an electric vehicle even attempted to scale a height of more than 18,000 feet, let alone complete it successfully.
Under the campaign ‘Praise De Himalaya', the first ever journey of its kind was flagged off from Gurgaon by Managing Director of Okinawa, Jeetender Sharma, Chairperson, Rupali Sharma and all their PAN India dealers.
The journey spanned across destinations such as Ambala, Jalandhar, Pathankot, Banihal, Ganderbal, Sonamarg, Srinagar, Bhimbat, Lamayuru, Leh and finally Khardung La. The Okinawa Praise conquered the mountains and proved its mettle in the harshest of conditions.
The Okinawa Praise, equipped with a Lithium-ion battery, braved challenging climatic conditions, difficult terrains and damaged roads during some stretches. The expedition highlighted the magnificent aspects of Okinawa's unparalleled engineering and hardware quality.
The Okinawa Praise can reach a top speed of 55-75km/h under different speed modes and a range of 170-200 km/charge. This was further complemented by the detachable battery that made the journey possible. The new development of detachable Lithium-ion battery was used as an easy option to just swap it with used battery and charge easily at any stopover.
The Okinawa Praise's telescopic suspension proved its excellence yet again by maintaining a smooth riding experience on uneven roads in different states of disrepair. Even after reaching Khardung La, one of the highest motorable passes in India, the scooter showed little signs of wear and tear.
Managing Director of Okinawa Autotech, Jeetender Sharma said, "The ‘Praise De Himalaya' campaign is the first and one-of-its-kind journey of an e-scooter to an extremely high-altitude zone where it is very difficult to attempt two-wheeler expeditions."
