Last week, Okinawa Autotech launched its Okinawa Dual, powered by a 250 Watt electric motor with 48W 55Ah detachable lithium-ion battery with a range of 130 km on a single charge. It has a top speed of 25 kmph.

Sharma said the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the rise of e-commerce and last-mile deliveries. It has become imperative for businesses in the delivery segment to innovate, reduce operational costs, and increase efficiency consistently, and Okinawa Dual will address that need. It will launch its high-speed motorcycle codenamed OKI100 in the first half of this year as per him.

The company will sell around 1 lakh units next fiscal

On the sales front, he said Okinawa Autotech would close in on cumulative sales of around 1 lakh units by the end of the ongoing fiscal since it started operations in 2017. He added that in FY 21-22, whatever the company have done so far, it will double the number with the coming in of two-three new models. It is a fair estimate that the company will sell around 1 lakh units next fiscal. Of the total, he said the B2B segment would account for around 20 per cent.

Sharma said with the transition to BS-VI emission norms, prices for conventional scooters and motorcycles have gone up. It is reducing the gap with electric counterparts, and Okinawa Autotech has focussed on localisation to be cost-competitive.

He added that the company has more than 92 per cent localisation till date. In the next quarter, it is going to be 100 per cent. He said that although the battery cells coming from outside the company have a dedicated supplier in India supplying it the battery packs.
