Ather Energy, a tech start-up founded in 2013 by two friends from IIT Madras, is launching the Ather 450X electric scooter in India today. The Ather 450X is basically a more premium version of the Ather 450, with added features and maybe subtle styling changes as well. The Ather 450X will be launched across Chennai, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru, Delhi and Coimbatore. Ather Energy has already started receiving pre-orders for the new 450X through invite codes that are being sent out to existing Ather owners and others.
