Ather Energy partners IDFC Bank for EV two-wheeler financing scheme

In a bid to make Ather Energy's electric scooters more affordable and accessible to potential customers, the company has partnered with IDFC Bank. Under the partnership, Ather customers will be offered a lucrative financing option with an aim to drive faster adoption of electric vehicles. The company claims that the financing solution will allow customers to own an Ather 450X scooter by incurring the same monthly expense as that of a conventional petrol scooter.

The scheme also provides the flexibility to customers to purchase an Ather 450X or a 450 Plus with a down payment of 5% of the on-road price applicable in the respective city. In a first for the electric two-wheeler space, IDFC is offering all this at a 48-month loan tenure. With this, Ather becomes the first OEM in the industry to have received a 48-month tenure for its scooters. Additionally, customers will be able to get an approval in 45 minutes with zero processing fee.
