"As of today, we have the capacity of 90,000 vehicles. Total capacity expansion, in a phased manner, can go upto 1 million, but by the end of next year, we will target a capacity of 5 lakh vehicles," said Jeetender Sharma, Founder and MD, Okinawa."The market is also likely to change, and volumes are going to transform. Three years ago, when we started operations, people were just talking about electric vehicles. But now, we see the market changing, and people are shifting from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles. In another two or three years, I think we'll see a very big shift from ICE vehicles to electric vehicles."
