“Okaya has already emerged as a key player in this segment, with creating the much required fast-charging infrastructure for these e-scooters”, he added.
“Faast, with its performance specs and features, has managed to hit the sweetest spot in the market, directly challenging its petrol scooter counterparts” the company said.
Okaya has emerged as a leader in the e-scooter segment in India by offering a product that is fully made in India rather than assembled in India.
“With our exclusive 'Okaya Faast e-scooters' we are targeting the massive demand for high-performance EVs in the market in sync with changing preferences of the consumers” said Anshul Gupta, Director, Okaya Power Private Limited.
Similarly, the company said it has developed over 225 dealers across India in the first six months of its inception, as well as working on introducing high-spec e-two wheelers.
Due to a rapid change in the country's energy fleet to electric mode, there is a high demand for electric vehicles, and as a result, electric scooters and fast charging are also in high demand.
“We look forward to capturing the major share of the emerging demand in the market, equally with fulfilling our commitment to our valued customers by delivering them state-of-the-art Okaya Faast e-scooters,” said Puran Singh Negi, AVP, Okaya EV.
Ferrato's to-be-launched motorcycle will carry a 2-kilowatt motor and 3-kilowatt battery and be capable of speeds up to 80-90 kmph with a range of up to 100 kilometers, as per the company.
