The company expects to be manufacturing close to 3 lakh electric vehicles (EVs) per year at the new plant, aiming to eventually increase the capacity to 1 million in the next 2-3 years—over 5 times that of the current full capacity of the plant located in Alwar, Rajasthan.

Okinawa Autotech has also planned to invest close to INR 250 cr in the development of its new facilities and make further gradual strategic investments to scale up the production.

Jeetender Sharma, Managing Director and Founder of Okinawa Autotech, said, “This development, amongst our other initiatives, is a testament to our unrelenting commitment towards our vision of ‘Made in India, Made for India,’. The market is evolving at a fast pace, and the ramped-up capacity will undoubtedly aid us in bolstering the mass transition to e-mobility with a diverse and innovative product portfolio.”

“Furthermore, it will tremendously help in achieving our ambitious plans to remain market leaders in the Indian EV industry while also assisting in the much-needed transition to clean energy,” he added.

Okinawa Autotech is hiring new talent to facilitate innovation in manufacturing electric two wheelers. The new production facility is expected to employ over 250 people across various functional areas. The company’s previous plant, located in Alwar (also in Rajasthan), reportedly has an annual capacity of 1,80,000 units.

The company states that it operates a dealership network with over 400 centres catering to metro cities as well as Tier 2, Tier 3 and rural markets in India. Recently, the company introduced two Okinawa Galaxy stores in Dehradun & Jaipur.

In October 2020, Okinawa announced that it was stopping the sale of lead-acid battery-based scooters, aiming to focus exclusively on lithium-ion battery-based variants thereafter. Founded in 2015, the NCR-based EV maker’s first model was Okinawa Ridge. In 2019, it started offering scooters with detachable lithium-ion batteries, making recharging and replacement much faster for users.
