Ather Energy, India’s leading electric scooter manufacturer, kicked off the year with a slew of industry firsts and features on its offerings at its marquee customer event, called the Ather Community Day. Ather has rolled out AtherStack 5.0, the biggest upgrade to its software engine which drives the vehicle. AtherStack 5.0 will be powering a brand new UI for the dashboard in addition to launching vector maps powered by Google.
The ex showroom price of the Ather 450X electric scooter in Delhi is Rs 160,205 while that of the 450 Plus is Rs 137,195. This electric scooter is least expensive in Pune where it costs Rs 149,039 and Rs 126,029 respectively.
The company also expanded options for customers by introducing four new colours, a new comfortable seat, Auto Hold to help riding on inclines, five year extended battery warranty programme, and the unveiling of Ather’s scooter accessories and merchandise.
Tarun Mehta - Co-Founder & CEO, Ather Energy, said, " In 2018, when we launched AtherStack in Ather 450, it was the first ever software engine on any two-wheeler in India, probably even globally. It powered first-to-market experiences like the touchscreen dashboard, onboard navigation, and remote diagnostics, which barely existed even in luxury cars at that time. With a fluid new UI and Google Vector Maps, AtherStack 5.0 takes our touchscreen and maps experience to a whole new level. It also enables us to leverage our hardware to unlock new experiences such as Auto Hold. Importantly, it allows us to roll out these new experiences to most of our existing customers as well, based on their scooter generation. AtherStack will continue to form a core of our product strategy, allowing us to constantly keep enhancing our product experience on the existing hardware platform."
AtherStack is the software engine that powers every single user experience on the Ather 450X, built on various interconnected layers of software, firmware, system intelligence, and algorithms. AtherStack will allow the customers to ride at top speed while extracting maximum torque from the scooter for far longer without derating, compared to every other EV, get incredibly accurate range predictions down to the last % point, enable intelligent auto cut-off when plugged into a charger, thereby prolonging your battery life significantly.
