Ather Energy’s popular electric product – Ather 450 e-scooter is now on sale in Chennai after doing a good business in Bengaluru and owing to its popularity and demand. The Bengaluru-based EV start-up introduced the Ather 450 in an event organized specifically for possible buyers of the Ather e-scooter.
The Ather 450 on road price in Chennai is Rs 1.31 lakh, and it can be booked at an amount of Rs 5,000. The deliveries of Ather 450 units are expected to start from September 2019 and a subsequent batch of deliveries by November and December 2019, following which the electric scooters will be delivered from February 2020.
Interestingly, the bookings were preponed from the supposed date of 09 July 2019 as scheduled earlier to open Ather 450 bookings. However, given the overwhelming response received during the special event held for prospective buyers, bookings had to be opened online and surprisingly the first lot of bookings has been filled already.
Ather Energy is now also focused on expanding operations to other major cities of India. Post its successful run in the southern regions such as Bengaluru and Chennai, the EV start-up is planning to move up to the western and northern parts of the country such as Pune, and subsequent start of operations in Mumbai and Delhi, sometime in 2020.
