Ather Energy is popular among electric scooter enthusiasts. It was one of the first companies to take the bold step of launching a full electric vehicle.

In Bengaluru, the Ather 450 Plus price has been set at Rs 1,31,647 (ex-showroom) and the Ather 450X at Rs 1,50,657 (ex-showroom). These prices include the Ather Dot or the portable charger.
