“We have witnessed a good demand in the market for Electric scooters. We have retailed over 1000 electric scooters despite limited dealerships operational during the current COVID 19 outbreak. This has indeed encouraged us, as we understand that the market is gaining its strength back," said Jeetender Sharma- MD, Okinawa.

As per a press release sent by the company on Thursday, Okinawa has been the leader in electric scooter sales in FY2020. It is also the only EV maker to have jumped the 10,000 e-scooter sales in India.

“We also anticipate that, due to COVID-19 outbreak, a lot of people would want to avoid using public transport, which might increase the demand of new vehicles for personal mobility. With the increasing awareness around the economic viability of electric vehicles, we might witness a sharp inclination towards EVs among the buyers," Sharma added.
