Okinawa Okhi-90 Launched At INR 1.21 Lakh
In India, Okinawa Autotech has released the new Okhi-90 electric scooter. It is the company’s first 2022 launch, as well as their largest scooter yet.
The Okinawa Okhi-90 electric scooter is powered by a 3.8kW motor and can reach a top speed of 90kph in Sport mode, according to the manufacturer. In Eco mode, the speed is reduced to 60 km/h. The manufacturer also claims that the scooter can accelerate from 0 to 90 kilometers per hour in 10 seconds.
The motor is powered by a replaceable 3.6kWh lithium-ion battery with a stated range of 160 kilometers. This is much more than the Ather 450X, TVS iQube, and Bajaj Chetak’s advertised ranges.
While the battery is touted to allow quick charging, no information on how long it takes to charge the battery has been revealed. For those who are curious, Okinawa is giving a three-year battery warranty.
The Okinawa Okhi-90 has a rather basic design in terms of aesthetics, but the 16-inch alloy wheels are what catch your eye. These are arguably the largest wheels we’ve seen on a scooter on the market right now. Okinawa believes that the scooter’s large wheels would enable it to handle India’s notoriously uneven roads. The model’s enormous 40-liter cargo area is also a talking point.
The scooter comes with built-in navigation, a digital speedometer, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry, a USB port for charging your phone, and call and notification alerts. Customers may also download the Okinawa Connect app, which allows them to lock their scooter in case it is stolen.
The pricing of the Okinawa Okhi-90 is Rs 1.21 lakh (ex-showroom, post-FAME-II subsidies). After state subsidies, the price drops even further — the Okhi-90, for example, is offered at Rs 1.03 lakh in Delhi and Maharashtra.
Okinawa is up against the Ather 450X (Rs 1.38 lakh), Ola S1 Pro (Rs 1.10 lakh), and Bajaj Chetak in terms of competitiveness (Rs 1.15 lakh). All prices are in Indian rupees and are ex-showroom.
