Revolutionizing Electric Scooters: Ather 450S Unleashes Unbelievable Power and Features!

Ather Energy, the manufacturer of electric two-wheelers, has commenced deliveries of its latest scooter model, the 450S.

The Ather 450S boasts a 2.9 kWh battery capacity, providing a range of 115 kilometers and a top speed of 90 kilometers per hour. Its user-friendly 7-inch display offers turn-by-turn navigation, call functionality, and music playback features.

In addition to these attributes, the Ather 450S incorporates autohold, a 22-liter storage compartment, a monoshock suspension system, side-stand sensors, and an automatic indicator cut-off mechanism. It is available in four striking colors: Cosmic Black, Salt Green, Space Grey, and Still White.

Safety features prominently in the Ather 450S, including an Emergency Stop Signal that activates tail light blinking during panic braking and a FallSafe system that cuts off power to the motor if the rider falls off the scooter. Dual disc brakes enhance braking performance.

Ather also offers a companion app that provides useful functions such as tow and theft alerts, a “find my scooter” feature, a charging station locator, real-time charge status updates, and push navigation.

Purchasers of the Ather 450S can enjoy a three-year, 30,000-kilometer warranty on the scooter’s battery.

During the launch, Ather Energy’s co-founder and CEO, Tarun Mehta, emphasized that the scooter caters to those looking to enter the electric vehicle market while seeking the quality and assurance that Ather scooters are known for, all at an accessible price point.

In addition to the 450S, Ather has introduced the 450X in 3 kWh and 4 kWh variants, providing more choices to customers.

Recently, Ather secured funding of Rs 900 crore from existing shareholders Hero MotoCorp and the global investment firm GIC through a rights issue. The company has seen substantial growth in FY23, with its revenue surging 4.4 times from Rs 408 crore in FY22 to Rs 1,783 crore.

Ather has also expanded its retail presence significantly, increasing the number of stores from 30 to 130 in just one year. Currently, Ather Energy operates in over 100 cities, including Bengaluru, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Jaipur, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Mysore, and Kolkata. With over 200 retail touchpoints and a network of more than 1,500 Ather Grids for electric two-wheelers, Ather is well-positioned in the rapidly growing electric mobility market.

Founded in 2013 by IIT Madras alumni Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain, Ather enjoys backing from prominent investors such as Hero MotoCorp, GIC, NIIF, Sachin Bansal, and Tiger Global.
