Here’s what the company said:
Speaking on the rollout of the new AtherStack 5.0, Tarun Mehta, Co-Founder & CEO, Ather Energy, said, ” In 2018, when we launched AtherStack in Ather 450, it was the first ever software engine on any two-wheeler in India, probably even globally. It powered first-to-market experiences like the touchscreen dashboard, onboard navigation, and remote diagnostics, which barely existed even in luxury cars at that time.”
