Ahmedabad-based startup Matter has announced that pre-orders for its electric scooter, the Aera, will open on May 17. The electric car maker said the Aera e-bike will be sold in 25 locations in India. Electric bikes can be booked online through Matter’s official website or e-commerce platforms such as Flipkart. Matter will open pre-orders for the Aera 5000 and Aera 5000+ models. It also announced early-bird prices for pre-orders.

Released last year, the Matter Aera will be the first electric motorcycle to be launched. It will be available in four trims – 4000, 5000, 5000+ and 6000+. The Aera 6000+ promises around 150 kilometers on a single charge, while the rest of the models promise 125 kilometers on a single charge. Matter will first start selling the 5000 series, priced from ¥5000 to 144,000 and then up to ¥5000+ is 154,000. All prices are ex-showroom prices. Additional decorations will be available later. Deliveries should begin later this year.
The electric carmaker says its electric motorcycle is the first to offer a 4-speed Hyper-shift gear capable of going from zero to 60 km/h in 6 seconds. The electric car has a liquid-cooled battery and powertrain and is claimed to cost as little as 25 paise per kilometer. The EV can be charged using a 5 amp plug. It also has navigation, music and calling functions, a 7-inch touchscreen, and more.
