Ather Energy is gearing up for the release of its 450S electric scooter, signaling the brand’s reentry into the competitive affordable price segment. Positioned as the manufacturer’s most budget-friendly offering, the Ather 450S draws inspiration from the popular 450X model but with certain feature and aesthetic adjustments. According to a report by HT Auto, the 450S will be equipped with a simplified LCD instrument console instead of the flagship 450X’s touchscreen unit.

While the LCD unit may not offer the same touch capabilities as modern smartphones, it will still provide essential features such as built-in navigation, document storage, connectivity options, and more. The extent of Bluetooth connectivity, specifically for call and SMS notifications, remains to be confirmed.

The Ather 450S has been meticulously designed to achieve affordability, with a targeted ex-showroom price of ₹1.30 lakh. To accomplish this, some features have been scaled down compared to its counterpart. Alongside the touchscreen unit, the 450S will feature a smaller 3 kWh battery pack, offering a range of 115 km (IDC) as opposed to the 146 km (IDC) range of the 3.7 kWh battery in the 450X. However, the top speed will remain unchanged at 90 kmph, and it will be powered by a 6.4 kW (8.58 bhp) electric motor, delivering a peak torque output of 26 Nm. Visually, the 450S will closely resemble the 450X, with only minor cosmetic alterations.

In 2018, Ather Energy took the lead in introducing touchscreen consoles on electric two-wheelers, setting a trend that has since been adopted by other premium electric scooters. With the launch of the 450S, the company aims to rejuvenate its sales, which were impacted by a price hike. The objective is to offer a more accessible option without compromising on the e-scooter’s performance and ride quality. Competing against rivals such as the Ola S1, TVS iQube, and Ampere Primus, the Ather 450S also targets customers who are considering 125 cc ICE-powered scooters in the market.
