Ather Energy today announced the launch of its latest electric scooter, the 450X Gen-3. The new scooter now comes with a host of new features. The 450X Gen 3 is now equipped with a bigger and more powerful 3.7 kWh battery that enables users to ride in the ‘Warp’ (Ather’s high-performance mode) through every ride. The battery is also 25% larger than the previous generation, giving an ARAI-certified range of 146 kilometres and a TrueRange of 105km.
The Ather 450X Gen3 also has aluminium frame, perfectly balanced weight distribution, and low centre of gravity. It also comes with wider rear tyres for better grip while leaning on turns and a shorter braking distance. Ather has introduced the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). TPMS is also crucial to maintaining range as lower tyre pressure increases the pressure on the battery.
On the UI/UX front, the new Ather 450X Gen 3 now features an upgraded dashboard with a re-architected Ather stack and an upgraded 2 GB RAM. This would greatly enhance the performance of memory-intensive applications and will unlock several features for the future like voice commands, multi-language support, heavier graphics, deeper diagnostics.
450X Gen3 now has new rear view mirrors that are 2X better in terms of visibility and 5X in reliability. The mirrors have been designed with single-cast aluminium and appear as a natural extension of the scooter to provide convenience and adjustability. The 450X Gen 3 also introduces an all-new sidestep, which has been designed to integrate seamlessly with the scooter’s design. The sidestep is made of single-cast aluminium for sturdiness and clean aesthetics and is combined with a soft rubber surface providing for a firmer grip and has been finished with a premium look.
The Gen-3 of Ather’s flagship variant will also offer a larger boot space of (22 litres). The scooter will carry over the 7.0-inch touchscreen system, front, and rear disc brakes with regen, 12-inch alloy wheels, a telescopic fork, and a belt drive system.
