Last week, the Ministry of Heavy Industries announced incentives for some categories of electric vehicles by making amendments to the FAME II scheme. The most relevant of them is the increase in incentives for electric two-wheelers from the previous Rs 10,000/ kWh to Rs 15,000/ kWh with a cap of 40 percent of the cost of the vehicle. This has led to substantial price cuts for existing electric two-wheelers in the market. Several manufacturers including TVS Motor Company have announced price reductions on their electric two-wheeler offerings.

Ather 450X

With the revisions in the FAME II scheme, the price of the Ather 450X electric scooter will be reduced by Rs 14,500. The 450X used to retail at a price of Rs 1,46,926 in Delhi, which includes the previous subsidies along with Ather Dot/Portable charger and also performance upgrades.

Now, with the aforementioned price cut due to increased subsidy on electric two-wheelers, the price of the said EV will be down to Rs 1,32,426 lakh in the national capital. Similarly, the scooter will now cost Rs 1,44,500 in Bengaluru compared to its previous price of Rs 1,59,000.
