Bengaluru-based electric vehicle pioneer, Ather Energy, has unleashed its much-awaited flagship electric scooter, the Ather 450 Apex, setting the roads ablaze with more power and range. Priced at Rs 1.89 lakh, ex-showroom, the Ather 450 Apex promises an exhilarating ride with its enhanced capabilities and a slew of upgrades over its predecessor, the Ather 450X.

The heart of the Ather 450 Apex is its robust 7.0 kW/26 Nm motor, a significant boost from the 6.4 kW unit in the 450X. This powerhouse enables the Apex to break the 100 kmph barrier and achieve a swift 40 kmph from a standstill in just 2.9 seconds. The top speed of 100 kmph marks a notable improvement over the 450X, which was capped at 90 kmph.

The electric scooter boasts an extended claimed range of 157 km on a single charge, providing riders with an extended journey without the need for frequent charging stops. Ather Energy introduces the all-new ‘Warp+’ mode, replacing the ‘Warp’ mode on the 450X, offering enhanced acceleration without compromising on the 75 km range.

Adding a touch of innovation, the Ather 450 Apex introduces ‘Magic Twist,’ a form of regenerative braking that allows the scooter to decelerate without engaging the traditional brakes every time the rider releases the throttle. This feature enhances the overall riding experience, combining performance with efficiency.

Enthusiasts eager to experience the Ather 450 Apex can secure their spot by booking the electric scooter, with bookings initiated last month at a nominal token amount of Rs 2,500. The anticipated deliveries are set to commence from March 2024, promising a futuristic and powerful ride for those at the forefront of sustainable transportation.

The Ather 450 Apex doesn’t just excel in performance but also captivates with its design. Available in the Indium Blue paint option, the scooter features striking transparent side panels, adding a dash of style to its robust performance.

Ensuring peace of mind for riders, Ather Energy extends the battery warranty for the 450 Apex, offering an impressive 5-year/60,000km coverage. This substantial extension from the 3-year/30,000km coverage on the 450X reflects the brand’s commitment to durability and reliability.

The Ather 450 Apex is not just an electric scooter; it’s a statement of Ather Energy’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of electric mobility. With enhanced power, extended range, and innovative features, the Ather 450 Apex signals a new era in electric scooters, inviting riders to embrace the future of sustainable and thrilling transportation.
