Ather is also reportedly working on a new affordable electric scooter that could debut at Ather’s Community Day Event 2023. The new electric scooter is expected to use simpler components such as a tubular frame instead of an aluminium lattice frame that does duty on the Ather 450X and Ather 450 Plus. The new electric scooter could also use a 3.6kWh battery pack with an advanced cooling system. The new train will have a certified range of up to 146km according to a leaked report that was published by the Delhi Transport Department. Reports also suggest that Ather Energy could also rework the chassis geometry and also revise the dimensions of this new electric scooter. The scooter has also been spotted testing on public roads on some occasions last year.
