The Mark 2 claims a range of 280 km under ideal conditions such as when ridden at 30-35 km/h with no air and surface resistances. The range comparison with Ather 450x doesn’t make much sense because the range test conditions are completely different.
You may connect your Ather 450x to your mobile phone and monitor the vehicle. The Ather provides you a fast-charging network known as Ather Grid in many cities. They plan to make the cities electric vehicle ready by installing charging stations.
Simple energy Mark 2 is still in the development phase, whereas Ather 450x is readily available in the market.
It has a lease option where you can drive the vehicle unlimited kilometers, without any worries about the insurance, service, etc.
Let’s wait how Mark 2 could be a viable vehicle with all these best specifications, especially battery, for the company. As a user, if we could buy the vehicle with the specs that they released, it would be the best deal.
