Okinawa has launched their new and premium electric scooter, the i-Praise, in India at Rs 1.15 lakh ex-showroom (India). The new Okinawa i-Praise is titled as 'The Intelligent Scooter', thanks to its class-leading levels of equipment.
One of the main highlights of the new Okinawa i-Praise is its detachable lithium-ion battery which requires just a 5A power socket to be recharged. This ensures that the scooter can be charged even at locations with limited electrical infrastructure. This charging convenience can be compared to that of a smartphone.
The new i-Praise requires a reasonable time of under three hours, to get its battery fully charged. With a claimed range of 160-180km, the Okinawa i-Praise impresses a lot. It weighs around 30-40% lesser than most other electric scooters out there. In short, the new Okinawa i-Praise is a brilliant choice to make in the country's race towards attaining electric mobility.
As mentioned before, the Okinawa i-Praise ticks a lot of boxes in terms of equipment. Here are some of the features accessible through the Okinawa Eco app:
- Geo-Fencing - Sets a virtual parameter (within 10-50m) and alerts the user whenever the scooter is moved beyond the boundary.
- Virtual Speed Limit - Notifies the owner of the i-Praise whenever he/she (or someone else) rides it above a set speed threshold.
- Curfew Hours - Helps set 'no ride hours' for individuals who work late-night.
- Battery Health Tracker
- SOS Notifications - Users can notify some saved contacts on the Okinawa Eco app during a distress situation
- Continuous Monitoring - Collects real-time riding data (hard acceleration, sharp turning, speeding, etc.) and provides feedback to the rider.
- Trips - Shows all the trips done on the scooter on a particular date, using GPS.
- Maintenance/Insurance Reminder
- Vehicle Status - Shows important information such as ignition status, battery voltage, current and average speeds; and immobilisation mode status.
Speaking at the launch event, Jeetender Sharma, Managing Director of Okinawa Scooters shared, "The team at Okinawa has pulled out all the stops to create a truly revolutionary product with i-Praise and we are delighted to see the incredible response that the EV has received even in its pre-launch phase. It is also a proud moment for us that an elite, forward-looking organization such as the Indian Navy has become the first customer for i-Praise. This not only demonstrates the strength of our product, but also encourages us to continue with our vision to innovate and transform the Indian automobile market."
