Written by Parichay Malvankar

Okinawa scooters has launched another new electric scooter by the name i-Praise. This EV has been priced at INR 1.15 lakh ex-showroom, and makes it a very, very expensive product. Okinawa claims that they have received over 450 bookings for the i-Praise ahead of the launch. We’re yet to see one on the streets though.

The i-Praise is powered by an electric motor with a power output of 1,000 Watt and peak power of 2,500 Watt. This motor comes matched to a 2.9 kWh Lithium-ion battery which claims to propel the scooter for a range of 160 – 180 km on a single charge. The highlight of the Okinawa i-Praise is that the battery can be detached and charged at your house in 2-3 hours.

In terms of features, the i-Praise comes with LED headlamps, telescopic front fork, dual rear shock absorbers, alloy wheels, front disc brake, and an Eco App. The App allows you to set a geo-fence, speed limit, curfew hours, and track the scooter health status. You also get emergency assist via SOS notifications and can also monitor the riding behaviour via the trip data logger.

The i-Praise measures 1970mm in length, 745mm in widht, 1150mm in height and has a ground clearance of 175mm.

Customers can opt for red, golden or silver paint options (all combined with black).
