Hey, I have booked an Ather 450x and I am a bit anxious about the cost of ownership and resale value of EV vehicles (in Hyderabad). Can someone share an insight with actual figures on the below 3 parameters please?
1.) Ex showroom price of 450 plus and 450x is same, however the additional 19000/- performance package on 450x is not included in the ex showroommprice why? 2.) What is the actual resale value of Ather 450X after 3 years (post warranty completion)? Will anyone even buy a second hand EV vehicle in the first place? 3.) What is the resale value of Ather 450x, if the battery is in warranty (resale under 3 years) if the vehicle was purchased in 2022 and vehicle is in good condition, with low odometer reading and well maintained? I am assuming that no one will be willing to shell out 85000/- for a second hand Ather, they might instead go for Activa or Jupiter if they have that much money. 4.) What happens after 3 years of usage (lets say 10km use every day with one daily charge)? Will the EV battery start depleting and lose mileage year on year like a cellphone battery or will it continue to give 85km True mileage even after 5 years? 5.) Ather battery cost is 65000/-, after 3 to 4 years, we wouldnt even get scrap value for this bike Inguess, is that right?
