India has been struggling with pollution for the longest. Amidst this, new age entrepreneurs identified the challenge and envisioned a pollution-free India. Startups in India are helping the Government to fulfill its mission of shifting vehicles from ICE to EVs as a solution to this vision.
One of the major concerns of people who are planning to buy an electric two-wheeler is the range that the machine can provide in a single charge. Gurgaon-based electric vehicle manufacturer Okinawa has tried to solve this issue with its Praise Pro electric scooter.
Powertrain & Range
The Praise Pro is powered by a 1000-watt BLDC Waterproof motor which gives 2500-watt peak power. This enables the scooter to offer an impressive range of up to 100 – 110 km on a single charge and can achieve a top speed of 70 kmph. The scooter is equipped with a 2Kw detachable lithium-ion battery, which will address the issues related to battery charging plugs in parking for the people who stay in high rise buildings. It comes with a removable battery with easy to charge on any 5 Amp plug similar to where we charge our Mobile phones. It takes just 3 hours for the battery to get fully charged.
The e-scooter is available in 3 colors – Glossy Red Black, Glossy sparkle black and Glossy Blue Black. Praise Pro gives a style statement with eye-catchy design. It comes with a stylish LED Projector headlamp with DRLs and Rear Led with defogger. It also flaunts Aluminum Alloy Wheels
