Ather claims a top speed of 80kmph and 0-40 in just 3.9 seconds. It is said that the electric vehicle would be driven up to 75 km in the economy mode.
“We started building electric scooters five years ago at IIT Madras and we are excited to launch not only the Ather 340 but also our higher performance flagship variant, the Ather 450. It has been designed with quick acceleration, great handling, large storage space and new-to-category features like park assist, remote diagnostics, and onboard navigation. In the last five years, we have not only built the scooter but an ecosystem for an electric vehicle future. Be it the suppliers and partners who were entering the EV market, the charging infrastructure that had to be set up for consumers and the engineering talent itself to build the products. Between the Ather 450 and the Ather 340 launching and the Ather Grid being up and running in Bengaluru, we are really looking forward to expanding into Chennai and Pune in the coming months,” – said the Co-Founder and CEO, Ather Energy Tarun Mehta.
