This is big news. I think the EC should have informed the buyers who got the deliveries in the last 10 days irrespective of the model. The on-road prices have also gone down for the 450x with Performance upgrades by approx 18k in all the cities.
As per the post, * The Ather 450X now comes bundled with a charger by default. The Pro pack enables faster charging using any 5A electrical socket with the purchase of an additional charger that can charge your scooter from 0 to 80% in 4 hrs 30 mins
I think the charger is the same. I wonder what the regular speed will be like if they call this fast charging
I agree. At least they could have upgraded the processor keeping in mind the issues current owners are facing especially with the maps. It’s an interesting read. Performance is now the same for both models. Its features like ride mode, 4G/ GPS connectivity/ ride modes/ color display will not be available without the pro plan
while hardware wise they seem to be the same, again software limited features. some limitations to note:
no internet connected or smart features
no modes (eco, ride, sport etc) however the torque and power seem to be same, so probably always on warp?
no reverse and no auto hold
also looks like there will be 2 different home chargers now.
the one free with scooter will probably be extremely slow, while you buy the normal one separately (which seems to be same as the one we used to get before this announcement)
