Ather Energy on Thursday launched the much-awaited Ather 450S electric scooter, which is the new entry-level model from the startup. Priced at 129,999 (ex-showroom), the Athr 450S will directly challenge Ola Electric's entry-level scooter S1 Air, which is slated to go on sale soon. What's interesting about the Ather 450S is the manufacturer claims it is capable of offering similar performance and superior riding experience compared to the conventional 125 cc petrol scooters available in the market.

Ather 450S electric scooter will be available for booking for customers from July 2023 onwards at Ather Experience Centres across India, said the company. It also said that the pricing of this scooter complies with the revised FAME 2 scheme. The consumers can avail more benefits from their respective state EV policies. Powering the Ather 450S is a 3 kWh battery pack that claims to offer a 115 km range on a single charge and enables the scooter to run at a top speed of 90 kmph, which is sufficient for commuting in and around the city.
