Ather 450 Apex special edition e-scooter production begins

The 450 Apex has a Warp+ mode that allows the e-scooter to accelerate from 0-40 km/h in 2.9 seconds.

Ather Energy co-founder Swapnil Jain has revealed that the production of 450 Apex is underway.

The Ather 450 Apex is a special edition electric scooter built to commemorate 10 years of the brand. It was launched last month at Rs 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom).

The 450 Apex looks similar to other models based on the 450 platform. However, the former comes in a special Indium Blue colour and transparent body panels in the rear, revealing its orange frame. It also gets an enclosed belt drive.

The 450 Apex is equipped with a 7 kW electric motor powered by a 3.7 kWh battery pack. Ather claims an IDC range of 157 km on a single charge and a 0-40 km/h time of 2.9 seconds, making it the quickest accelerating e-scooter in its line-up. The e-scooter has a Warp+ mode that allows riders to deploy its peak performance and reach a top speed of 100 km/h. 

The e-scooter also features a new regenerative braking system called 'Magic Twist'. It allows the rider to twist the accelerator 15 degrees backwards to slow down the e-scooter without using the brakes.
