Pune has jumped up to top three cities, clocking over 25 million km in 2022. Maharashtra's EV adoption policy has played an important role in this. Markets such as New Delhi and Hyderabad are also rapidly catching up as Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities continue to show strong EV adoption rates and are riding longer distances.

One of the biggest concerns regarding EV adoption is the charging infrastructure. The company installed 634 Ather Grids, fast-charging points, bringing the total to 885, becoming the largest fast-charging network for two-wheelers. During the year, Ather Grid powered 1,89,26,771 km for riders.
