Okaya Electric Vehicles (EV), India’s fastest-growing electric vehicle brand, has received ICAT certification for its electric vehicles under AIS 156 Amendment III Phase 2, which covers safety requirements for electric vehicles and includes designing, constructing, and testing the battery pack and its components to ensure they meet the safety standards set by the government. With the AIS 156 Phase 2 certification, Okaya EV has now become one of the first EV manufacturers in the two-wheeler segment to move towards complete compliance with the new norms.
Okaya EV supports advancements in battery safety, reliability, and performance, including high-standard wires & chargers with overcharging protection, thermal protection, audio-visual warning systems, and smart BMS. The company has also added an additional safety feature in the form of a buzzer to alert the rider at least 5 minutes prior to thermal runaway. Additionally, it has an IP67 rating that ensures all critical components of the vehicle are protected from dust and water.
The company’s high-performing EV two-wheelers are equipped with an LFP (Lithium iron phosphate) battery that is waterproof and dustproof and has a longer lifespan than NMC battery. LFP batteries are extremely safe and able to function very well in high-temperature Indian weather conditions and have improved discharge and charge efficiency. The amazing chemistry of the LFP battery provides a stable output for longer operating times in any condition.
Commenting on the latest development Mr. Anshul Gupta, Managing Director, Okaya Electric Vehicles said, “For us, customer safety is the top priority. And receiving the ICAT certification under AIS 156 Amendment III Phase 2 further demonstrates our commitment to provide safe and premium electric vehicles to customers. Our extensive experience in battery technology has allowed us to develop the safest electric vehicles for our customers. The certification process involves comprehensive tests to ensure that our vehicle can withstand various factors. We believe that this certification will enhance customers’ trust in electric vehicles and assure them of their safety and reliability. We will continue to bring innovative technological advancements to provide a smooth and safe EV-owning experience and contribute to the government’s initiative to promote electric mobility in India.”
