Ather Energy unveils Series1, a limited-edition model based on the 450X
Ather Energy has unveiled the Series1, a collector’s edition of its 450X flagship. This limited-edition scooter is available only to those who pre-ordered the 450X before its national launch on January 28, 2020. The Series1 stays mechanically unchanged from the 450X, with a 6 kW PMSM electric motor and 2.9 kWh lithium-ion battery. It also has the same set of riding modes - Eco, Ride, Sport, and a high-performance 'Warp' mode. What is different, however, is the unique aesthetic choice in the form of translucent panels in the rear offering a peek inside the scooter. Besides, the brand’s distinct cast aluminum chassis and trellis frame are also visible for all to see.
Another difference from the existing range of colours (grey, white, mint green), the Series1 comes with a high-gloss metallic black body colour combined with red accents. These signature colours also feature on the 7-inch touchscreen dashboard of the Series1 scooters, with a special intro screen and subtle hints of red in the UI designed for the scooters.
Speaking about the introduction of the Series1 scooter, Tarun Mehta, CEO and Co-founder, Ather Energy, said, “Like all our scooters, the Series1 is built from scratch and we hope our community loves it as much as we loved building it. Building automotive grade translucent panels is tricky and I am super excited that Ather is bringing them out for the first time ever with Series1.The teams have been working on it for months and despite the lockdown have been able to produce something truly fantastic. ”
Deliveries of Series1 will begin by November 2020 in all 11 cities - Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Coimbatore, Kozhikode, Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kozhikode, and Kolkata. The initial batches of Series1 scooters will ship out with black panels and will be upgraded to the translucent panels in May 2021.
