Ather 450 Plus electric scooter price has been reduced to ₹1.03 lakh (ex-showroom) in Maharashtra after the state's EV subsidy is added.

Indian electric two-wheeler manufacturer Ather Energy has announced that the price of its 450 Plus scooters have gone by almost 20 per cent in Maharashtra. The EV-maker has said that after adding the state's EV subsidy to the 450 Plus price, customers will now have to pay around 24,000 less to ride away in a brand new electric scooter.

Tarun Mehta, Co-Founder of and CEO at Ather Energy, took to Twitter to make the announcement. He wrote, “EV subsidies finally are going live in Maharashtra. Prices of 450+ come down by ~24K and is now priced at 1.03L in the state."

Despite the reduction in price, Ather 450 Plus is still not the most affordable electric two-wheeler to buy in Maharashtra. It is not even more affordable than its rival Ola Electric's S1 electric scooter, which costs 94,999 (ex-showroom, post-state and FAME-II subsidy).

According to reports, Ather Energy is working on a new electric scooter which will cost less than one lakh to take on Ola Electric's offerings. However, the launch is still some time away, around the the first quarter of 2023 financial year.
