Ather Energy is gearing up to expand its manufacturing capacity in India. The Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer is now aiming to come up with a third facility to build its electric scooters. Backed by Hero MotoCorp, Ather Energy is currently talking to several state governments to finalise land to set up the new facility. Ather Energy currently has two manufacturing facilities in Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The second one is expected to be up and running by the end of this year.

The EV two-wheeler maker is reportedly in talks with officials from state governments like Karnataka, Telangana, Gujarat, Maharashtra as well as Andhra Pradesh. The new facility, through which Ather Energy plans to produce around 15 lakh electric vehicles every year, needs about 100 acres of land to set up. According to sources, the talks are in final stages and the location for the new manufacturing hub will soon be finalised.
