Co-founded in 2013 by IIT graduates - Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain, Ather Energy is one of the few hardware startups in India. The company has built India’s first truly intelligent electric scooters and is backed by the founders of Flipkart, Tiger Global and Hero Motocorp. Designed from scratch, the Ather 450 & Ather 340 are products made in India that have been customized to Indian conditions and riding sensibilities. Every little thing in and around the products have been crafted from seamless ownership experience. The flagship Ather 450 comes with a top speed of 80 kmph, a range of up to 75 km and an acceleration of 0-40 kmph in 3.9sec and ensures a riding experience that’s ideally suited for city commute. Both the Ather scooters are equipped with a touchscreen interactive dashboard and an integrated app which allows first in its category features like onboard navigation, remote diagnostics and over-the-air (OTA) updates for future improvements. The Ather 450 & the Ather 340 will initially be launched in Bengaluru, scaling up to Chennai and Pune. Ather has opened it's first experience centre, AtherSpace in Indiranagar, Bengaluru. Here, product specialists personally take interested customers through every detail of the vehicles and manage the test ride, while the purchases are made online, on the company website. Ather will also set up charging solutions for each consumer at their residence for overnight charging. What will complete the experience is AtherGrid, a comprehensive public charging network launched in May this year. With 30 locations on board, Bengalureans will find this infrastructure within 4 km of reach. Designed keeping in mind the lifestyle of the owners, it’s set up at places they would visit- tech parks, shopping malls, multiplexes, cafes and restaurants and allows them to charge up to 80% in an hour.
