Just my thought on the Subscription plans,
The monthly subscription,
A. Let say there are two groups of user, both always drive in warp mode(that’s the reason to be X ain’t it)
But group 1 has usage > 40km per day
Group 2 has usage < 20km per day
No one wants the batter worries so we all want to go for the battery subscription model, the problem here though lies that both group of users are paying the same subscription, which for the group 2 user makes no sense.
Why wont ather come up with base battery subscription based on the user profiles.
Say you had like X rs/month for users less than 5k Kms a year, Y rs /month for users with < 10k Kms per year and Z rs /month for anything greater.
Even if the user was paying X rs per month, but if the battery did come for replacement and he fell into the second band he can just pay the difference amount in subscription over the months to avail the warranty.
This makes it accessible and sensible to all users.
B. Why can’t all the data related features like ride statics and sensor data you need to improve the vehicle be synced with users phone and only the anomolies from normal be sent back to ather.( You pay for data for you phone, your home internet and again 400 per month which is 50k for your scooter? This to me the biggest pain point. Software support should not be charged heck 10k phones get it for couple of years charging 400pm for a 1L scooter is a crime).
You charging for the grid and service palms are convenient for a particular group of users, which brings to point C.
C. Battery worry relief is something we all need, so that should be the base subscription and the rest ( the grid and service) add ons.
This makes the scooter plus or pro sensible for even the low usage group.
Let me know Athers view on this.
