The deliveries of the Ather Series 1 special limited edition model have already begun in a few markets. Moreover, the brand will be setting up 135 public fast charging Ather Grid Points across 11 cities by the end of this year. For the Ather 450 customers who are looking to upgrade to the Ather 450X, Ather Energy has introduced a peer-to-peer service, Ather Certified Pre-owned that basically connects Ather 450 owners to the consumers interested in a pre-owned Ather 450. Every pre-owned Ather 450 listed for resale as part of this program comes with an Ather Health Certificate issued based on a comprehensive data-based inspection on every aspect of the scooter, which makes the system transparent and easy to use.
The Ather 450 series has only been improving over the years, all thanks to the 7 OTA updates that introduced new features like Eco-mode, Dark theme for the dashboard and guide-me-home lights. The company claims that the said product line will continue to receive new features and upgrades in the coming years, and hence, the Ather 450 series will only get better with time. The next OTA update is planned to be released soon and will carry the Theft and Tow detection feature for all Ather 450 and Ather 450X. Ather Grid is already available, free of charge in Bengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Pune with 62 fast-charging points already up.
