The recent push towards electric vehicles by the Indian government has encouraged a number of new brands to exploit the developing EV segment. One such brand is Gemopai Electric - a joint venture between Delhi-based Goreen E-Mobility and Chinese brand Opai Electric. The company has launched the Astrid Lite, a lithium-ion battery-powered electric scooter in India, at Rs 79,999 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The scooter offers quite a lot of useful features like keyless entry, USB port, removable battery with the option to slot in another one, and three riding modes - Sports, City and Economy. With these bells and whistles, it goes head-to-head with the recently launched Okinawa PraisePro. The latter has the distinct advantage of having a wider service network compared to Gemopai’s 50-odd dealerships in India and Nepal combined. We’ve reached out to Gempoai regarding more information on the warranty of the scooter, charges for the optional battery, among others and will bring you updates as soon as we hear from them.
