Within three months of successful operations from its first experience centre in Lajpat Nagar, smart electric scooter maker Ather Energy inaugurated two more showrooms – Ather Space – in Janakpuri and Gujranwala Town in New Delhi today.
Ather Energy has partnered with the PPS Group for both the retail outlets, which will now cater to the rising demand for Ather scooters across markets within Delhi. With three showrooms across the city, Delhi becomes the only city to have multiple Ather Space after Bengaluru. The Ather 450X, one of India’s quickest and smartest electric scooters, alongside the Ather 450 Plus will be available for test rides and bookings at these Ather Spaces.
The Ather 450X and 450 Plus will have lower prices in Delhi compared to most of the other cities. The ex-showroom price after factoring the FAME II revision for the Ather 450X is Rs 132,426 andRs 113,416 for the Ather 450 Plus.
The EV start-up says the Ather 450X has seen strong consumer interest and encouraging demand, since the opening of the first Ather Space in Delhi. With the two new showrooms opening their doors, customers from North and West Delhi can now test-ride and purchase the Ather 450X from a convenient location. The new Ather Space is designed to educate customers about electric vehicles while providing a holistic experience in an interactive space. Ather Space is well equipped to provide a unique ownership experience along with complete service and support for the owners.
