The EV arm of energy storage solutions provider Okaya Group, Okaya Electric, has launched its third model of electric scooter called the Okaya Freedum, which is priced at Rs 69,900. The Okaya Freedum is a slow scooter with a top speed limited to 25 km / h. This means that it does not receive any federal or state subsidies and is aimed at everyone who wants a two-wheeler that can be driven without a driver’s license. Okaya is working on delivering a high-speed version of Freedum in the coming weeks.
The range of the Freedum with lead-acid battery is estimated at 50-60 kilometers and for the lithium-ion model at 70-80 kilometers.
The charging time of the lead-acid model is fixed at eight to ten hours, while the charging time for the lithium-ion model is fixed at four to five hours.
The scooter rolls on 10 inch wheels with a telescopic fork at the front and a single shock absorber at the rear.
Braking functions are provided by a front disc brake and a rear drum brake; regenerative braking is standard.
The company already sells two electric scooters – the AvionIQ series and the ClassIQ series. Okaya said it is using these scooters from its manufacturing facility in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh.
“Electricity is the future and we are in the best position to provide quality value for money to every Indian. Because of our related business interests, it is natural for us to have an advantage in the market, ”said Anil Gupta, Managing Director of Okaya Power Group.
The company has announced that it will launch 14 new products in the current fiscal year, including a high-speed motorcycle and specialized B2B vehicles.
Okaya currently has 120 dealerships and plans to add 800 more in the coming days, he added.
