The electric arm of energy storage solutions provider Okaya Group has launched a new Okaya Freedum electric scooter. The two-wheeler will be available in several variations. It includes a model offering a maximum range of around 250 km on a single charge, the company said.
Okaya Freedum will be the third electric scooter in the Okaya range which already includes the AvionIQ series and the ClassIQ two-wheel electric series. The bike will be launched with lithium-ion and lead-acid battery options. Available with the choice of a lead-acid or a lithium-ion battery, the Okaya Freedum is a low-speed scooter, with a top speed limited to 25km / h.
This means that it cannot claim any subsidy from the central government and the state. It is aimed at those who want a two-wheeler that can be driven without acquiring a driver’s license. Okaya is working on launching a high-speed version of the Freedum in the coming weeks.
