Ather Energy delivers 100,000th vehicle to customers, has market share of 15.5 %
Ather Energy has reported that they shipped 12,147 units of the Ather 450 series in the month of February 2023. They reported a 495 per cent year-on-year growth. The market share of the electric two-wheeler manufacturer grew to 15.5 per cent at a national level and they have 21 per cent in markets where Ather has a retail presence. In February, Ather integrated six new experience centres which makes the total count up to 108 centres. The brand is currently present in 81 cities.
The brand also achieved some milestones in the month of February. They delivered their 100,000th vehicle to their customers, inaugurated their 100th experience centre, and installed the 1000th Ather Grid in India. The Ather Grid is one of the fastest-expanding charging infrastructures in the Indian market. Ather already has more than 1000 fast chargers in India and they plan to increase this count to more than 2,500 before 2023 ends. Limited charging stations are one of the major reasons why people are hesitating in transitioning to an electric vehicle.
Ather Energy is currently working on bringing more features to its electric scooters which are 450 Plus and 450X. These upcoming features will be Cruise Control, Crawl Control and Advanced Regen. As of now, the brand has not shared any timeline nor they have given the update with the Atherstack 5.0.
