Long pending question. I think we were going to get 13-14 grids before deliveries begin. Don’t know what their timeline is. Even on tweeter I didn’t get any reply for the same question. At some places chargers are installed a month back, but still not activated.

@solartech.pune @abhishek.balaji Just got the news that PMC has committed to set up 50 charging stations in the city for EVs with a budget of 50 lakhs. Maybe Ather can co-ordinate with them to set up the charging grid?

And also the status of existing chargers which are not yet activated i.e.status of kalyan bhel charger etc.

Today I went for a quick charge at Kalyan Khel but unfortunately it had issues and my bike was not charging, thank god I had enough range to reach home. The nearest grid available was 7.4 km away if it also doesnt work then it is a major problem. Areas like Viman nagar, gangadham, wanowrie and camp are prime locations , even after more than 2 momths after owning the bike there are just 9 charging stations and the nearest ones are always occupied or are not functional even if sometimes they show green on the app. The basic purpose of the grid is to provide emergency fast charging to the bikes if Ather cannot do this it can not address the range anxiety.

Also many charging stations have some other bikes parked in front of the grid and it is troublesome to move the bikes and charge your vehicle, all stations have just one point, some locations like the eat and repeat restaurant at JM road requires multiple points as they are always occupied. The charging station at Ather Space itself is always unavailabe.

Hi @abhishek.balaji

Any updates on the grid points? Yesterday there was a situation in Pune, where out of 9 grid points, 7 points were busy.

Please look into this Thanks
