Ather Energy 340 and 450
ATHER ENERGY HAVE LAUNCHED TWO ELECTRIC SCOOTERS, THE 340 and the 450. They are priced at Rs 1.10 lakh and Rs 1.25 lakh (both prices are on-road, Delhi, and inclusive of FAME subsidy).
The 340 is the production model of the previously teased S340. The BLDC motor in the 340 produces a peak power of almost six PS and a peak torque of 20 Nm. Ather claim that the scooter attains 40 km/h from a standstill within 5.1 seconds. Powered by a 1.92-kWh lithium-ion battery, the 340 has a claimed range of 60 km per charge and a top speed of 70 km/h.
If you thought the 340 was impressive, wait till you see what the 450 is capable of. Although both scooters look similar, the 450 dismisses 0-40 km/h in a mere 3.9 seconds. A 2.4-kWh lithium-ion battery powers a BLDC motor that produces a peak power of 7.34 PS and a peak torque of 20.5 Nm. It can achieve a top speed of 80 km/h and has a range of 75 km per charge. Both the scooters come with an array of advanced connectivity options and attractive service packages. Ather also claim that the company will reimburse the charging cost incurred by the customers.
Ather Energy are now accepting pre-orders in a limited number. From 8 June onwards, test rides will be available at AtherSpace at Indiranagar, Bengaluru.
