Thoughts On The Ather 450 Chennai Deliveries
Ather Energy which was previously launched only in Bangalore is now slowly expanding in Chennai as well. The company has built a strong base in Bangalore, with decent sales month-on-month. The company now hopes to replicate the same in Chennai as well, before expanding further to other cities in India.
Ather Energy has officially started deliveries of its electric scooter in Chennai. The Ather 450 deliveries in Chennai began recently, with the first 100 customers receiving their electric vehicles in a week's time.
