NCR based Electric two-wheeler maker Okinawa Autotech will soon launch the a new version of Ridge electric scooter Okinawa Ridge+. It is the new lithium-ion battery powered version and has been priced at ₹ 64,998 (ex-showroom, India).
According to Okinawa Autotech MD Jeetender Sharma, "After the positive response garnered by Ridge and Praise, Ridge+ is the result of Okinawa's sustained desire to keep offering Indian commuters best-in-class EVs which are not only equal but even better than their in-class conventional fuel variants. The Ridge+ offers great convenience by providing the detachable battery which makes the charging at ease. The user can take out the battery and carry to their home or office for charging purpose.”
The new Okinawa Ridge+ uses an 800 watt, BLDC water-proof motor and runs 120 km in a single charge. The Ridge+ will be sold alongside the standard Okinawa Ridge that used a lead battery. Though the new Ridge+ is substantially more expensive than the lead battery powered Ridge by about ₹ 21,000.
The Okinawa Ridge+ is the third such offering from the company and is alongside the Ridge and Praise scooters. Interestingly, the Ridge+ is more expensive than the flagship Praise that uses a lead-acid battery and is priced at ₹ 59,889 (ex-showroom).
The new Okinawa Ridge retains the same design and styling as the standard version and is available in two colours options - Lucent Orange/ Magna Grey & Mid Night Blue. The electric scooter also has the same top speed of 55 kmph and a loading capacity of 150 kg.
