Co-founded in 2013 by IIT graduates - Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain, Ather Energy is one of the few hardware startups in India. Ather has designed India’s first truly intelligent electric scooters and are backed by the founders of Flipkart, Tiger Global and Hero Motocorp. Ather Energy has filed 43 patent applications along with 11 international patent applications and 122 design registrations of their products that have been designed and made in India. Ather has also installed a comprehensive public charging network, AtherGrid in Bengaluru.
At Ather, we believe in the superiority of an electric drive. With a firm belief in vertical integration in design, we have built our own chassis, suspensions, lithium-ion battery packs, battery management systems, and body works. In June 2018, the company launched ‘Ather 340’ and ‘Ather 450’- a higher performance flagship variant. Both these models have been designed with quick acceleration, great handling, large storage space and new-to-category features like park assist, remote diagnostics, and onboard navigation. In the last five years, Ather has not only built the scooter but an ecosystem for an electric vehicle future. With the successful launch of Ather 450 & Ather 340 and AtherGrid in Bangalore, Ather is now looking forward to expanding into Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Delhi in the coming months.
