Bengaluru-based startup, Ather Energy, has now installed over 1,000 grid fast-charging stations across India.
Ather had earlier said it aimed to install 1,400 grid stations by FY23, and it has now achieved 70% of its target.
Hero MotoCorp’s maiden electric two-wheeler offering, the Vida V1 e-scooter, has tapped into this network and uses the same open-sourced connector design as the Ather’s, with a fast-charging capability of 1.2km/min. This means that Vida V1 owners can effectively plug their scooters into Ather’s fast-charging network.
Ather recently rolled out its 1,00,000th unit, a True Red 450X, and has also refreshed its 450X e-scooter line-up with new colours and features for 2023.
