Ather 450X Electric Scooter Its Next Scooter 450X
Ather has announced that it will soon launch a new variant of the 450, the 450X. For now, the company hasn’t revealed any details, but we expect it to have some additional features over the standard Ather 450. We believe the upcoming Ather 450X could have a higher top speed and range compared to the standard 450.
This new electric scooter is said to feature major upgrades on the Ather 450, along with a few new features the company says will be unique. Operating in Chennai and Bangalore for now, the company recently signed an MoU with the Tamil Nadu government to build a new 400,000 sq ft factory.
The standard Ather 450 is powered by a 5.4 kW motor and 2.4kWh battery, which offers a range of 75km (Eco mode) in the real world. So, we believe Ather might have made some changes to the motor and maybe improved the Battery Management System to squeeze a bit more than the current setup.
Ever since Ather Energy made its foray into the electrical two-wheeler market, the firm has been gathering data and further improving the product with new riding modes, features and other bits via OTA (Over The Air) updates.

The move comes after the company has expressed its will to expand the network across different cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune. Currently, it sells the Ather 450 scooter in Bengaluru and Chennai only.
The company is expanding its Ather Grid public charging network in metro cities in the months to come. Fast charging points will be made available in required cities prior to the delivery of scooters. The company says since the EV business isn’t traditional in nature, the traditional business model isn’t for it. The company is in the lookout for dealers to boost expansion in QuickTime.
The company has stated that the new Ather 450X will offer improved performance, better connectivity features as well as additional intelligent functionalities as well. The new Ather 450X will be a limited edition model, available across India.
