Probably this is the reason why the company has recalled 3,215 Praise Pro electric scooters sold across the country with immediate effect. It is worth noting that the heat in India has now started bothering the people and the temperature has risen to more than 40 degrees, in such a situation the risk of fire in the battery increases and this is the reason why the company has issued a recall. According to the company, health checkup of these electric scooters will be done and their battery and other parts will be repaired free of cost if needed.

Lithium-ion battery pack is the reason?
Okinawa along with many other electric scooter brands provide lithium-ion batteries in their EVs, which is the main reason behind the fires in these electric scooters. Let us tell you that in most cases, the electric scooter has caught fire after this battery pack gets hot, apart from this, the rising temperature contributes a lot to it and the lithium-ion battery pack becomes the cause of fire. In such a situation, the biggest need of the moment is to install a cooling device for the electric battery. Apart from this, the use of defective parts in EVs should also be stopped immediately to keep them economical as it directly endangers the life of the customer.
