A couple of things struck me when I read the article on them:
The first prototype that we developed had a 200 km range in Eco mode, which is between 30-40 kmph speed
If they can actually give 200 km range at 40 kmph, that’s truly incredible. But can they, with existing tech within reasonable costs? Curious to know how they achieved the seemingly impossible.
Suhas Rajkumar, Founder & CEO, Simple Energy: The Ather 450X is our primary competition. What Ather Energy has done is absolutely amazing, there’s no doubt about that.
My hunch is that they aspire to have their pricing pegged somewhere in the vicinity of Ather 450 / 450 Plus very likely. Their primary intention would be to just give enough incentive to dislodge the potential target audience of Ather 450X, if at all their economics allows them to.
Also, on a different note, if we all thought the Ather seat was a literal pain in the arse to use, then check out the incline on this thing (that of the pillion section is quite a bit too)!
