This also means that Ather will also set-up charging 'Ather Grids' in Kozhikode as it does with every new city where the company establishes presence. The company has said it is identifying partners including malls, coffee shops, restaurants, tech parks and offices to set-up their fast charging public network. Speaking to carandbike earlier this month on Freewheeling With SVP, Tarun Mehta, Co-Founder and CEO, Ather Energy had explained that the company's business model requires it to set-up charging grid network before commencing sales.

Ather Energy plans to have at least 10-15 fast charging points in every city in Phase 1 before beginning deliveries of the new 450X. The company already has 52 Ather Grid points installed in Bengaluru and Chennai, the two cities where it currently has active operations. The start-up is expected to open shop in Hyderabad next followed by other cities in the months to come. The brand plans to have 100 operational charging grids by the year-end.
