Okinawa Autotech has reduced the prices of its electric scooters by up to Rs. 17,892 after the FAME II scheme was amended to offer higher subsidies on purchase of electric two-wheelers.
With the coming of the FAME II scheme amendment, Okinawa too decided to reduce the prices of its electric scooters. Okinawa has reduced the prices on its scooters from ₹ 7,200 to ₹ 17,900, with the Okinawa iPraise+ getting the biggest price cut. The FAME II scheme subsidy allows a further discount of ₹ 15,000 per kWh. The new prices came into effect from June 11, 2021. Okinawa has sold over 90,000 scooters in India as of May 2021. The company has plans of investing ₹ 150 crore to set up a new manufacturing facility in Rajasthan near the company’s existing plant in the state.
Commenting on the same: Jeetender Sharma, Managing Director & Founder, Okinawa Autotech, says, “We are excited and thrilled to provide users with the most innovative electric scooters at even more affordable prices now. Lowering the prices of electric scooters in the country will serve as a stepping stone and help persuade more riders to switch from a combustion-engined model to an electric one. We thank the government of India for taking this crucial step.”
