In an attempt to conquer the second largest populated country and the third largest consumer of oil, Ather aims to electrify India by spreading the gospel of EVs.
Starting with the launch of the AtherGrid a series of 30 charging points strategically placed across Bengaluru, India, Ather aims at getting its system ready before its product… the Ather 450 electric scooter. With a top speed of 80km/h, an acceleration of 0-40 in 3.9 seconds, and a range of 75kms, the Ather 450 is India’s first smart electric scooter.
With an edgy visual characteristic, a storm-trooper color combination (plus some delightful green accents), the Ather 450 definitely looks the part of an intelligent electric two-wheeler. It sports a 7″ touchscreen dashboard that allows onboard navigation with options of alternative routes and saved locations. It also comes with the Ather app that enables push navigation from one’s phone to the vehicle dashboard, remote monitoring of the vehicle health, and charge monitoring. Furthermore, with the over-the-air (OTA) updates, the Ather 450 is capable of improving over time with continuous updates and addition of new features and functionalities.
The Ather 450 also tackles the problems of a developing country by offering fast-charging up to 80% at 1km/minute of charging time. Use the AtherGrid to juice your vehicle or rely on any 5A socket to charge your EV. It also allows for an unprecedented ‘parking assist’, which allows riders to reverse into tight parking spots… making the Ather 450 the stunning e-scooter that India truly needs!
