Bengaluru-based EV start-up Ather Energy has today announced its latest initiative – Ather Electric December. This month-long program will offer lucrative benefits, financing options & exchange schemes to Ather’s prospective customers for the first time ever. Ather is offering an extended battery warranty worth Rs 6,999 at just Rs 1.
With this initiative, consumers can secure their electric scooter’s batteries for an additional two years (over and above the manufacturer’s warranty of 3 years) taking the warranty period to five years. The company says that this is an introductory and limited-period offer. It will only be applicable to customers purchasing the Ather 450X and Ather 450 Plus in December 2022.
On the retail financing front, Ather Energy has partnered with IDFC Bank which will offer a 48-month tenure to enable consumers to own an Ather electric scooter. The company is also offering an exchange value bonus of Rs 4000 and an on-the-spot valuation in case someone wants to exchange their old scooter.
