Ather Energy CEO Tarun Mehta revealed that Ather electric scooters will soon get an auto-reply feature. This means riders can reject calls and auto-reply from the dashboard without having to take their phone out of their pocket. In addition to this, the brand also recently updated the Ather app, which now has new features.
RideStats is now called RideStory. Riders can view trends and milestones for their rides here. The Services tab gets some updates. Riders will now be able to check service history and get updates on the status of their vehicles as they are serviced. Then there’s Ather Neighborhood charging. In addition to the public charging network, Ather is investing in community shared charging for residential communities. The app will now display these new chargers. Also, charging history is now available.

One of the biggest advantages of electric vehicles is that they can be updated, meaning that the vehicle can gain more features and even improvements over time. For example, Tata Motors has added cruise control and multiple regeneration modes through a software update.
Separately, Ather Energy is also working on a new electric scooter called the 450S. Expect the Ather 450S to be the new affordable scooter. It is also possible for Ather to rebadge the 450X without the Pro Pack as a 450S. Speaking of the Pro Pack, Ather has improved the lineup by introducing a lower-spec version of the 450X, but it lacks some features. It has a grayscale dashboard without any smart features. However, it still features LED lighting, but without the auto-switching turn indicators and guide-me home lights. Ather 450X Cost Now ¥98,183 and 450X Pro Pack for ¥1,28,443. Both prices are ex-showroom prices.
