Ather Grid in Goa

The google maps used in Ather look so vintage. Also it would be great to see a wider area covered under the grid before launching a bike in any state. The State of Goa has no charging points in south Goa,east or coastal areas. Some points along the highway would encourage more to opt for Ather since there are other options with removable batteries. With a young population in this tourism state ATHER NEEDS TO LOOK AT COVERING

North to south of Goa with the Grid Bikers may want to ride from KARNATAKA TO GOA.

  1. More charging points
  2. Better Google maps(updated)
  3. Map feature in RIDE STATS.

Should not be much of an issue for the IT team to look into.

Don’t know about the status of Grids in Goa, but as long as long as you are talking about the Grid within city limits or something, Ather will set up Grid. Since Ather is made as a city scooter, Highway grids are a long shot but since in bigger Cities like Mumbai and a new grid in Bengaluru for Nandi Hills trip, it maybe installed. Maybe Grid 2.0 on the lines for that? However it will be pretty interesting to see how the Grid plan is done for Goa.

Goa is unique - given that northern most large town (Pernem) to southern most large town (Palolem) is about 100km. Similarly, east west is about 70 km. The state is like a large city.

If fast charging is available strategically (like 5 largest towns: Panajim, Madgaon, Marmugao, Mapusa, Ponda) it would be a boon for residents and tourists.

@abhishek.balaji Any idea what will be the cost of charging Ather bike at Ather Grid in Goa after the free charging window closes?

17th September 2021 showroom was inaugurated in Goa. How many charging points are planned across the state of Goa before the 17th November 2021.

For the customers who own Ather bike in south Goa or eastern region of Goa, it becomes a challenge with no Ather Gird presence.

Goa is just a small state as big as a city… But with high capita income and young population… Ather will not want to miss the advantage of arriving early in Goa with a smart E bike

The free charging window has been extended continuously by Ather so far. It’s 3 years since Ather vehicles are on Bengaluru roads. Free charging at grid was only supposed to be for one year but it’s continuously getting extended. Enjoy while it lasts. In one of the open houses, i remember them saying that grid charging comprises 5% only. 95% of the times home chargers are used. Hence they are able to continue providing free charging at grids.

I really think they should set-up the grid at Goa borders it’ll become so much easier to travel to Belgaum etc .

@zainkhanwarsi I support your suggestion. Goa being a small state with higher per capita income, a well spread Ather GRID 2.0 would propell sale and Ather could cement its place in terms of market share and customer satisfaction.

@abhishek.balaji , @tarun The second year anniversary of #Ather450x meet a was good event. Thank you Ather.

I hope Ather Team in Goa keeps their Goa customers connected to take feedback to identify locations for #Ather Grid 2.0

Also I’ve noticed that the Ather grid locations are not updated on the maps . I’ll be probably getting my Ather next week so I’ve been looking up for these grid locations and they just don’t show up anywhere, am i missing something or looking in the wrong place ?

If you are looking in Google maps then you’re not looking in the right place. Not all grids are marked in Googlemaps. You should look for chagring points in AtherGrid app (before you’re an Ather scooter owner) or the Ather app or the scooter dashboard (after you own an Ather scooter).

Well i just checked and there are about 8 grid chargers in Goa . But most of them are in the north and only one in south . At least that’s what I see on the Ather grid app, will make sure to check out all of them once I get my Ather .

It would be wiser to have one Ather Charging point each at the following places in SOUTH GOA #atheringoa #athergrid

  1. Margao (main town in south Goa) .

  2. Colva (main beach in South Goa) .

  3. Navelim (schools, college, shopping hub) .

  4. Fatorda (Stadium, Main Bus stop, Hospitals) .

Spotted one in Vagator, Goa at Antares restaurant few days back. Didn’t get the chance to try it. Looking forward to try it next week with my Ather. But really hoping for more charging points in Goa… would be very convenient especially with the amount of commercial spaces available now it shouldn’t be have taken this long?? Expected more points by now.

I have a location to setup a Ather Grid charging station in Candolim, Goa. I’ve send a mail to athergrid@atherenergy.com but have received any reply after filling the form. My location is situated in a prime location on the main road of candolim. Love the idea of electric bikes so I’m ready to give space to setup a charging station. Candolim being close to calangute and baga, is a prime tourist destination and with would really put Ather on the map in this area. Kindly requesting anyone who has any contact with the area manager to contact me for further information at the earliest. My email Id is kedsouza@hotmail.com. I’ll will share my contact number on the email. Thank you

Hi @kedsouza , Alternatively you can contact BLive in Panjim. They are Channel Partners for Ather Energy in Goa. They have setup one charging point at their HO… Find the Ather Grid and your can talk to them face to face.

love to see this suggestions coming for south goa people as well…I have booked my scooter in April this year. Had one doubt though…does the scooter come with portable charger in the box or we have to purchase it extra? if extra how much for the portable one? (I am aware that it comes with the dot charger included in the price of the vehicle…)
