EV-maker Okinawa Autotech has reduced the prices of its entire range of electric scooters after the recent amendments in FAME II policy announced by the Indian Govt. To encourage the widespread adoption of electric vehicles in the country, the company is extending full subsidy benefits of INR 15,000 per kWh to its customers. Depending on the model, Okinawa electric scooters have now become INR 7.2K to INR 17.8K cheaper.
Speaking in this regard, Mr 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.
