Electric two-wheeler manufacturer Okinawa will launch its first electric motorcycle in the third quarter (between October to December) of FY 2020-21. It will be launched in the Indian market under the name Oki100. The company has informed about this on Thursday.
Okinawa claims that all components of the Oki100 electric bike will be manufactured in India except for battery sales. The top speed of this electric motorcycle will be 100 kilometers per hour. It will have a lithium-ion battery base.
Target to take localization level to 100%
Jitender Sharma, MD, Okinawa said, ‘Okinawa currently offers maximum localization for electric vehicles, which is 88%. With our upcoming electric bike, we are taking the localization level to 100%. All its components will be made in the country and will be sourced from local suppliers. We hope that this will promote the domain of local suppliers and inspire all EV startups to ‘Local for Vocal’.
Prototype of electric bike was introduced in 2018
The company has said that to achieve the target of 100% localized electric two-wheeler, it will also increase the local supplier base in the country. Apart from this, the company has not given any further information about its first electric bike to come. Let us know that Okinawa introduced the prototype of its electric bike at the Auto Expo in 2018.
