As the world moves towards a sustainable future, electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular. In India, one company that is leading the way in this field is Ather Energy. Founded in 2013 by two IIT graduates, Ather Energy has made a name for itself in the electric vehicle industry with its innovative and sustainable solutions. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at Ather Energy and why it is a company to watch in the coming years.
Ather Energy’s Electric Scooters
One of the main focuses of Ather Energy is designing and manufacturing electric scooters. Their first electric scooter, the Ather 450, was launched in 2018 and quickly gained popularity in the Indian market. The Ather 450 is a high-performance scooter with a top speed of 80 km/h and a range of 75 km on a single charge. It also features a touchscreen dashboard with features such as navigation, vehicle diagnostics, and over-the-air updates.
In 2020, Ather Energy launched its second electric scooter, the Ather 450X. This scooter features an upgraded battery pack that provides a range of 116 km on a single charge and a top speed of 80 km/h. The Ather 450X also comes with advanced features such as Bluetooth connectivity, onboard navigation, and vehicle telemetry.
Ather Grid – Charging Infrastructure
Ather Energy understands that for electric vehicles to become more popular, there needs to be a reliable and accessible charging infrastructure in place. That’s why the company has set up a network of charging stations called Ather Grid. Ather Grid provides fast charging to Ather electric vehicles and is available in more than 70 locations across eight cities in India.
Ather Dot – Home Charging Solution
In addition to Ather Grid, Ather Energy has also introduced a home charging solution called Ather Dot. Ather Dot is a compact and portable charger that can be easily installed in homes and can charge the Ather electric vehicle from 0-80% in just 3.5 hours. This solution is designed to provide convenience to electric vehicle owners who may not have access to a charging station.
Energy Storage Solutions
Ather Energy is also focused on providing energy storage solutions. The company has introduced a portable power bank called Ather Powerbox. The Ather Powerbox is a portable 6 kW battery pack that can be used to charge electric vehicles and power homes. It can be charged from Ather Grid or Ather Dot and can provide backup power during power outages.
