Ather Energy, a leading electric vehicle manufacturer in India, has launched a special edition electric scooter to mark its 10th anniversary. The scooter, named Ather 450 Apex, comes with unique riding features and impressive performance. It is priced at Rs 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom) and the bookings are open now. The deliveries are expected to start by March 2024.
Ather 450 Apex has a 3.7kWh battery that can run up to 157 km on a single charge
One of the highlights of the Ather 450 Apex is its 3.7kWh battery pack, which gives it an IDC range of up to 157 km on a single charge. The scooter also features a new regenerative braking system, which allows the rider to slow down the scooter by twisting the accelerator backwards by 15 degrees. This feature, called Magic Twist, eliminates the need for brakes and enhances the battery efficiency.
Ather 450 Apex is the only model in the lineup to offer Warp+ mode and quick mode
Another feature that sets the Ather 450 Apex apart from the rest of the lineup is its Warp+ mode, which enables the scooter to accelerate from 0 to 40 kmph in just 2.9 seconds. The scooter also has a quick mode, which allows it to reach a top speed of 100 kmph. The scooter has a peak power of 7kW and is based on the company’s 450 platform. The company has maintained the same seat, height, wheelbase, tire size and ground clearance as the 450X model.
Ather 450 Apex sports a striking indium blue and bright orange color scheme
The Ather 450 Apex also stands out for its aesthetic appeal, as it comes with an indium blue color body panel and a bright orange chassis. The scooter also has a new belt drive system, which will be seen in the upcoming models of the company. The Ather 450 Apex is a limited edition model and is expected to sell out soon. The company has also announced that it will launch its products in 50 new cities across India by the end of 2024.
