Ather Energy's sub-Rs. 1 lakh e-scooter due in Q1 of FY2023

Ather will offer an alternative to the Ola S1 and Simple One electric scooter.

Ravneet Phokela, Chief Business Officer, Ather Energy, has confirmed that the company is working on a third model based on the Ather 450 platform. The model is currently in the advanced stages of development and is expected to be launched in the first quarter of FY2023.

What's more interesting is the fact that the new model will offer customers an alternative to the Ola S1 and Simple One electric scooter, which undercut the Ather 450X in terms of pricing. It is said that that Ather's new e-scooter could be priced under Rs. 1 lakh.

Earlier, patent images of Ather's upcoming electric scooter had leaked online. The maxi-scooter styled model has a large front apron with an integrated windshield. It could be powered by the same electric motor and battery combination as the Ather 450X. However, it is unclear if this is the same sub-Rs. 1 lakh e-scooter that is due in 2023.

At present, Ather Energy offers two variants of the 450 - the 450 Plus and 450X, priced at Rs. 1,13,000 and Rs. 1,32,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi), respectively.
