Speaking about its sales performance, Ravneet S. Phokela, Chief Business Officer, Ather Energy, said that the auto company registered its highest ever monthly sales last month. "We have registered the highest ever monthly sales figures, delivering 6410 scooters to our customers. The demand has always been strong, but we’ve been grappling with supply chain constraints. It is now that all the hard work on ramping up the supply chain is beginning to pay off, and we see growth in our production numbers. This growing momentum in production will ease the waiting period for deliveries, and that coupled with the ongoing distribution footprint expansion sets us up well for a great festive season," he further added.
