Ather Energy discontinues Ather 450 electric scooter

Ather Energy has announced that it has stopped the sale of the Ather 450 electric scooter in both, Bengaluru and Chennai. It will be replaced with the Ather 450X & Ather 450 Plus, which have been built on the same platform, with improved hardware and software capabilities.

The Ather 450 was the company’s first product. It was launched in 2018 and was designed from scratch. It used a 2.4 kWh lithium-ion battery and had a maximum range of 107 km - as tested by the ARAI. Its claimed 0-40 km/h acceleration time was 3.9 seconds. The Ather 450 has, over the years, received 7 OTA updates which introduced new features like Eco-mode, Dark theme for the dashboard and guide-me-home lights.

With the introduction of Ather 450X and Ather 450 Plus, Ather Energy is focusing on delivering the products in new markets such as Hyderabad, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Delhi, Kochi, Kozhikode, Coimbatore and Kolkata. The deliveries of Ather's Series 1 model have already begun in a few markets. The scooter will soon be available across the country. Ather Energy will also set up 135 public fast charging Ather Grid Points across 11 cities by the end of the year.

Considering the demand for Ather 450X among Ather 450 owners who're looking to upgrade, Ather Energy has introduced a peer-to-peer service, Ather Certified Pre-owned, which connects Ather 450 owners to consumers who are interested in a pre-owned Ather 450. Every pre-owned Ather 450 listed for resale as part of this program comes with an Ather Health Certificate issued based on a data-based inspection on every aspect of the scooter.
