Ather Energy offers limited-time deals on 450X, 450 Plus scooters
Bengaluru-based Ather Energy is offering exciting discounts to customers on the Ather 450X Gen3 and Ather 450 Plus in India this December. The e-scooters are available with an extended battery warranty (two years over and above the brand's warranty of three years) at just Re. 1. Apart from this, buyers would also get free access to 'Ather Grid' till December 31, next year.
Why does this story matter?
- With the ever-increasing two-wheeler EV market in India, many automakers are finding it difficult to differentiate their products from the competition.
- However, homegrown EV start-up Ather Energy is offering its electric scooters with benefits such as a two-year extended warranty, easy finance schemes, an exchange program for ICE-powered scooters, and one-year free access to the brand's charging infrastructure.
- This should attract new buyers.

The scooters pack a 7.0-inch colored TFT touchscreen instrument cluster with smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. They ride on 12-inch designer alloy wheels.
