To recall, the company had earlier announced that the free access to Ather Grid chargers would remain effective until December 31, after which the users were supposed to pay a “nominal fee” using the Ather app.
Apart from this, the company back in November also declared that it will offer its customers free connectivity features on all its electric scooters until May 15, 2022. Under the scheme, all existing and new customers will get access to the Ather Connect Pro subscription pack free of cost. All customers who already had a Connect Lite/Pro subscription will get a refund on a pro-rata basis.
In other news, Ather Energy is currently focusing on expanding its business. To help realise its goals, the company recently established its second production facility in Hosur. It believes that this will help it in meeting the demand for its electric scooters, as it looks to ramp up its production to 4,00,000 units. It has also committed to investing Rs 650 crores in the next five years to optimise efficiency and production capacity.
