The biggest change on the Ather 450X is the addition of larger battery cells that required a redesigned battery pack and now accommodates up to 2.9 kWh, as opposed to 2.71 kWh on the Ather 450. The electric motor now produces about 6 kW that equates to about 8 bhp, 0.8 bhp more than the standard version. Peak torque has gone up by 6 Nm to 26 Nm. Furthermore, the scooter has seen a weight reduction of 11 kg and the top speed is gone up to 85 kmph. The electric scooter can sprint from 0-40 kmph in just 3.3 seconds, while grade ability has improved to 20 degrees. The Ather 450X promises a range of 85 kmph in Eco mode and 75 km in Ride mode.

The Ather 450X also gets a new Android-based user interface in place of the Linux system that brings more adaptability. The system now comes with a Dark mode and the Bluetooth connectivity feature allows you to receive or cancel incoming calls, play and change music, while the navigation changes to more precise reading.

In terms of competition, the 450X will lock horns against the Bajaj Chetak, TVS iQube and Okinawa iPraise in the segment. The company is expanding its production operations with a new manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The company aims to sell about 30,000 units this year and the new plant promises to reduce the waiting period by a significant margin.
