Many customers in these new cities are also eligible for the limited-edition Series 1 model, as they had placed orders in January 2020 even before the official launch of the new product. Ather Energy says that it will be opening up in these cities in a staggered manner by Q1 2021 and will also begin setting up test rides to let consumers experience the vehicle.
