After a successful run in Bengaluru, Ather Energy officially began accepting  pre – orders from consumers for its Ather 450 in Chennai. This is  the second city the company is entering after its commercial launch in June  2018.  Ather’s flagship scooter has seen great traction from owners and  reviewers and has changed the market’s expectation of two wheelers.

Last weekend, Ather offered early access test rides to its followers in  Chennai and showcased the 450 prior to its official launch. The event was  focused on the Ather community that the company has built and had fifty  Bengaluru owners travel to Chennai to share their ownership journey. This  pre-launch event saw resounding response and the Ather 450 has already  sold out till November in Chennai. The company is now opening pre-orders  for its second limited batch of deliveries. 

The on – road price of the Ather 450 is INR. 131,683 and Ather 340 will be  priced at INR.119,091 in Chennai. The price includes the regulation 2  helmets, along with the FAME 2 subsidy and other basics like insurance,  road tax, GST, and other fees.

Ather had begun the installation of its Ather Grid points in Chennai in  May 2019. Since then, Chennai has seen installation of ten fast charging points.  These charging points can be found in malls like Forum Vijaya Mall, offices  like AtWorks and cafes, restaurants, and even grocery stores. To encourage  adoption of EVs in the city, Ather Energy will provide free charging at Ather  Grid till December 2019 for all electric 4Ws & 2Ws and will add 40-50 more  charging points to their network. 

The company will be opening Ather Space, the experience center at Wallace  Garden, Nungambakkam on 24th July. Consumers can test ride  vehicles at Space and get an in-depth view of electric vehicles and their  usage.

The company has announced free Ather One subscription for all the  deliveries in 2019, starting with the September batch. The Ather One plan  offers customers free access to; public and home charging; regular  maintenance inclusive of consumables; breakdown assistance; and  unlimited data services at only INR 700 + GST monthly. 

The company is increasing the production capacity of its manufacturing  facility to ramp up deliveries in Bengaluru and Chennai. The waiting period  for the vehicles has come down enabling faster deliveries to  customers in the last month.
