Ather Energy, an Indian electric two-wheeler brand, is working on a new electric scooter that will cater to the needs of the Indian family. The new electric scooter, named Rizta, will be a family electric scooter that will complement the company’s existing 450 lineup. The company has released a teaser of the Rizta, which shows the electric scooter in ultrasound.
The teaser reveals that the Rizta will have a different design and styling from the 450 range electric scooter. The Rizta will feature horizontally integrated LED headlights and taillights, and a long seat for comfortable seating of the rider and the pillion. The company claims that the Rizta will offer a good riding experience to the customers.
Ather Rizta: Launch and delivery details
The company has not disclosed the battery pack and other hardware features of the Rizta yet. However, some reports suggest that the Rizta may share some similarities with the 450S and 450X models. The company plans to introduce the Rizta during the Ather Community Day 2024, and start the delivery of the electric scooter in six months.
Rizta will compete with other electric scooters in the Indian market, such as TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak Premium. The expected price of the Rizta is around Rs 1.35 lakh (likely ex-showroom price).
The Rizta is a new addition to the growing segment of electric scooters in India, which has seen a rise in demand and popularity in recent years. Ather Energy hopes to capture a larger share of the market with its family electric scooter.
