Bengaluru-based EV manufacturer Ather Energy has made changes to its 450X electric scooter line-up, reducing the price and making the two-wheeler more accessible. The entry-level variant of the Ather 450X is now priced at Rs 98,079 (ex-showroom, Delhi) after FAME II and state subsidy. Customers can also opt for the Pro Pack, which costs Rs 30,364 more than the base model, and comes with additional features.
Ather 450X Pro Pack Features and Battery Warranty
The Pro Pack adds several features that the base variant misses out on, including a Smart dashboard user interface, riding modes, Google Maps integration, auto hold, park assist, Ather app connectivity, Ather Connect Pro features, access to Ather Grid fast charging, and a 5-year/60,000 km battery warranty. On the other hand, the entry-level variant without the Pro Pack comes with a 3-year/30,000 km battery warranty as standard.
Price and Charging
The Pro Pack-exclusive features bring the price of the electric scooter up to Rs 1,28,443 (ex-showroom, Delhi) after FAME II and state subsidy. The entry-level Ather 450X can only be charged through the standard home charger, which takes around 12 hours and 15 minutes to charge from 0% to 80%.
Performance and Colour Options
The Ather 450X continues to be offered with the same electric motor, which delivers 6.4 kW power and 26 Nm torque. It has a claimed range of 146 km, with a real-world ‘TrueRange’ of 105 km, and a top speed of 90 kmph. The electric scooter is available in four colour options: Lunar Grey, True Red, Salt Green, and Cosmic Black.
Comparison with Rivals
With the introduction of the new entry-level variant priced at under Rs 1 lakh, the Ather 450X becomes a more attractive option for buyers looking for an electric scooter. Its rivals include the Ola SI, TVS iQube, and Bajaj Chetak Electric. Which electric scooter would you choose? Let us know in the comments below.
