Lucknow: In yet another addition to the bouquet of offerings for the millennial generation to go zip, zap and zoom, the Ather 450X is all set to give you a ride of a lifetime. The scooter will now be available in Lucknow.
The entry of Ather into the Lucknow market stems from the high demand and interest from retail partners which has spurred a massive expansion drive. The Ather 450X will be available in 27 cities in India by the first quarter of 2021.
The Lucknow leg of the expansion is part of Phase 2 of the plan of spreading across the country. Ather is India’s first intelligent electric scooter manufacturer. Pre-orders, dealership requests, and a large number of test ride requests have prompted Ather Energy to include the new market in Phase 2 of its expansion.
Many in Lucknow are also eligible for the limited edition Series 1 vehicle, as they placed the order in January 2020 before the official launch of the new product line.
Of the 11 markets where Ather has a presence, more than 60 charging points are already installed in the pipeline, with a few more on the way.
The Ather 450X is an upgraded model of its predecessor, the Ather 450 and is one of the fastest and smartest scooters in India, and comes in three new colors; Brown, Green and White.
The scooter is powered by a 6kW PMSM motor, has a new 2.9kWh lithium-ion battery, and comes with 4 riding modes. Apart from Echo, Ride and Sport, Ather has introduced a new high performance mode, ‘Rap’.
The Ather 450X can accelerate from 0 to 40 kmph in just 3.3 seconds in wrap mode, making it the fastest scooter in the 125cc range, and a perfect option for getting out of city traffic.
The electric scooter will also have a 4G SIM card and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing riders to manage phone calls and music on the touchscreen dashboard. The Ather mobile app will continue to provide functions such as personal ride figures, charging status, theft with push navigation and tow detection, live location and vehicle state tracking.
