Bengaluru-based Ather Energy is launching its first ever indigenously developed two-wheeler in India, which is a smart electric scooter. Called the 340, the scooter boasts several innovative features and boasts higher equipment levels than any scooter in India. In fact, Ather Energy claims its offering is the most advanced scooter in the country. The scooter is meant to offer higher performance levels than conventional scooters along with excellent dynamics, not to mention smart connectivity. Ather Energy is also setting up its own charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, called the Ather Grid. As part of Ather Grid, charging stations will be set up public locations across various cities in India, starting with Bengaluru. Ather Energy's idea is to build a sustainable ecosystem that will help promote EVs like never before, as it feels electrification is a better technology than fossil fuel powered automobiles.
