Ather Energy Launches S340, India’s First Smart Electric Scooter

Ather Energy has launched India’s first truly smart, electric scooter, the S340.  Packed with a powerful Lithium Ion battery pack, top speed of 72 kmph and a range upto 60 kms, this connected scooter is designed for urban tech lovers, who are curious about futuristic products.

“The future will be connected and inevitably electric and the Ather S340 has been built as a manifestation of this philosophy,” said Tarun Mehta, CEO & Co-Founder. “It is an unapologetically electric vehicle, it has been designed and built mostly in-house with engineering precision.”

Structurally robust and intelligently designed, its IP67-rated battery pack offers an uncompromised ride for 50,000 kms. The vehicle achieves an 80% charge in 50 minutes in fast charging mode and can be charged from any 5A normal socket in normal mode. It has a distinct sporty look with zero lateral weight offset, a low centre of gravity and intuitive LED lights that respond to ambient light conditions.

The touchscreen dashboard integrates cloud based data to help personalise the consumer ride experience. Features like user profile based sign in, on board navigation, pre-configured drive modes like sport and economy allow a personalised experience. Its integration with the S340 Mobile App keeps the rider connected with the vehicle, to configure ride and profile preferences and sync navigation routes remotely.

Predictive analytics and aggregation of ride statistics enable customised recommendations. As more vehicles go in-field, aggregate rider and vehicle data will help in customised vehicle updates that will be delivered automatically over the air.

Says Tarun, “Intelligent vehicles will revolutionize our commute experience in future and we have just begun that journey.”
