Ather expects the already rising demand for e-scooters to rapidly increase in coming times and has confirmed its plans of a new in Tamil Nadu's Hosur. This facility will be able to roll out a million units each year. This round of investment will allow Ather Energy to accelerate its expansion plans and speed up the deliveries of the Ather 450X. "Electric vehicles are here to stay and Ather Energy is playing a leading role in driving this change. Sachin has been part of our growth journey and this investment is a strong endorsement of the momentum we’ve built over these years," said Tarun Mehta, Co-founder and CEO at Ather Energy.

Ather 450X and 450 Plus are the two main products which act as fulcrum to the company's expansion plans in the country.

Bansal, as such, is also confident of Ather's roadmap ahead. "Their new product line and expansion plans across the country will make EVs a part of the Indian landscape. Having been a part of the team since 2014, it's great to see their vision taking shape," he said.
