ATHER 450: an electric ride
In the kernel of a huge technological affray in the automobile industry, Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain founded Ather Energy in 2013 as an Indian electric vehicle company. Owing to the preferred choice of urban straphanger, they started manufacturing two models of electric scooters, 340 and 450. Making the scooter intelligent by enabling integration of devices and to revolutionize commuter experience they established electric vehicle charging infrastructure Ather Grid.
A robust version of the two models Ather 450 has an all-aluminum frame, a 5.4 kW (7.2 BHP) Brushless DC electric motor and a 2.4 kWh Lithium ion battery pack to give users a hassle-free experience. Attaining a speed of 40 km/h in 3.9 Seconds, its top speed is 80 km/h and can travel upto 75 km on one full-charge in city riding conditions. Also featuring a 7-inch touchscreen dashboard with options like on-board navigation, diagnostics, all-LED lighting, auto-cancelling indicators, smartphone integration, and cloud connectivity to send and receive data from Ather-servers. Ather 450 is crafted to get recharged by any regular 5A socket using the charging cable. A home charging Point is equipped with surge protection and authenticated power transfer so it’s safe and works only with your scooter. With auto cut-off and app integration, charging is an unattended overnight activity.
