10. Another new Family Electric Scooter

Ather Energy's upcoming scooter, set to launch in 2024, features a boxier shape, a 2.9kWh battery, and a potential range of 115 km on a full charge. What Ather intends to do with this is target the market share of scooters like the TVS iQube S and the Ola S1 X range of scooters.

Okinawa's Cruiser stands out with its vibrant colors, a 3kW electric motor, and a range of 120 km on a single charge. Equipped with practical features, it adds a dash of style to the electric scooter market. But the Okinawa Cruiser’s USP is its maxi scooter-like design language. It’s big, bold, and will grab a lot of attention, similar to the Suzuki Burgman. So if you are a fan of such big maxi scooters, the Okinawa Cruiser is something you should not miss out on.
