Okinawa Switches To Lithium Batteries Completely

Bhubaneswar: Electric scooter maker Okinawa on Thursday announced that it will discontinue using Lead Acid batteries in its electric two-wheelers and shift to Lithium ones.

“We are shifting to 100 per cent lithium-ion battery pack based two-wheelers. When we launched the brand, lead acid was the most advanced option available in the market. Now with rigorous growth of the industry and the brand, we have taken a step ahead and have discontinued lead-acid battery pack-based products. Not only will Okinawa products be equipped with lithium-ion battery packs offering efficiency, but they will also come with detachable batteries ensuring convenience to the users,” said Okinawa MD and Founder Jeetender Sharma.

Another reason for switching to Lithium battery is that FAME II subsidies from the government are not applicable to older lead-acid batteries based electric two-wheelers.
