The high fuel prices  we've experienced recently has seen more interest grow in electric two-wheelers in the country. Okinawa Autotech, the largest electric two wheeler maker in India has seen its sales grow by  30 percent in the last quarter. The firm has also witnessed a three-fold increase in enquiries from prospective customers.

Jeetender Sharma,  MD and founder of Okinawa scooters said of this development, "The EV sector in India is rapidly growing since the last three years as both the central and state governments have been taking many initiatives to promote the adoption of Electric vehicles. The recent hike in fuel prices has further pushed consumers to look for alternate options such as electric vehicles. We as a company have witnessed the hike and aim to provide the electric vehicles that are at par with the ICE engine."

The Okinawa range consists of six electric scooters, priced between Rs 50,000 to Rs 1.14 lakh. These are the low-speed Okinawa R30, Okinawa Lite, and Okinawa Dual. The high speed products are Okinawa Ridge+, Okinawa Praise Pro, and Okinawa iPraise+. In 2021, two more high speed offerings are planned from the brand.
