    Okinawa i-Praise pre-bookings open at Rs 5,000

    Growing electric two-wheeler manufacturing company Okinawa Scooters has started accepting bookings for its new i-Praise. The e-scooter can be pre-booked from any of Okinawa's authorised dealerships across India at the booking price of Rs 5,000.

    The i-Praise comes with a detachable lithium-ion battery which allows users to charge at their own ease and convenience. Okinawa claims a successfully reduced charging time span of only 2-3hr. The company further claims a reduction in the overall weight of the e-scooter by up to 40 percent as compared to the Okinawa Praise, which is powered by a lead-acid battery. The claimed range of the vehicle is 160-180km on a single charge and said to have a top speed of 55-75kph.

    “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,” said Jeetender Sharma, founder and managing director, Okinawa Scooters. “With the pre-bookings commencing from December 14 and only going on till the first 500 orders, we are looking forward to an affirmative response.”

    Pre-booking of i-Praise began on December 14, 2018 across the 200+ pan-India authorised dealers of Okinawa Scooters. This round of pre-bookings is only open for the first 500 applicants and the delivery of the e-scooter would begin post the official launch of the i-Praise, slated for January, 2019.
