Ather 450X is the new age millennial friendly electric scooter which is filled with technology and innovation to the brim.
Ather Energy recently ceased the sales of their first premium electric scooter in India which was the Ather 450 from November 28, 2020. Thereafter, with the aid of series D funding, Ather Energy is expanding their reach across the Indian markets as they have opened up their dealerships in 11 major cities across India aside from Bangalore and Chennai, where Ather 450 already had gained a very strong ground. With this plan of expansion, Ather Energy launched the Ather 450X, an upgrade over the Ather 450.
Well, there is no doubt in the fact that the Ather 450X looks really futuristic. However, when it comes to the overall design of the Ather 450X, there is no specific change in its design that distinguishes it from its predecessor the Ather 450.
It has the lowest center of gravity amongst all the scooters in India alongside a floor-mounted battery and the low mounted motor that helps in increasing the handling of the scooter.
The front: rear weight ratio of the Ather 450X is 49:51 with zero lateral offset and symmetrical weight distribution to provide optimum balance.
The Ather 450X is also equipped with front and rear disc brakes for excellent braking conditions alongside progressive mono-shock suspension for great damping conditions and higher comfort on the road.
The Ather 450X is powered by a 6kW PMS motor letting the 450X reach up to the top speed of 80km/h and producing 26Nm of instant torque resulting in 0-40km/h in 3.3 seconds which displays the true potential of the electric motor.
Combined with the electric motor is a 2.9kW Lithium-ion battery pack which is IP 67 Rated Water-resistant and Dustproof for providing big numbers when it comes to the range of the Ather 450X.
The average range on the road that 450X provides is 85 kms on a single charge. The battery can be charged up to 80% in 3 hours 35 minutes and a full charging time of 5 hours 45 minutes which is claimed by Ather Energy and it also supports built-in auto cut-off along with surge protection.
The 450X is a premium electric scooter that is very highly advanced and fully loaded with features and cutting-edge technologies such as:
