The 450X is the best electric scooter we’ve ridden in India, but the premium pricing is not for everyone.
Thanks to the state subsidy provided by Delhi, the Ather 450X costs the lowest there, at Rs 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom). The price in every other city, meanwhile, is around Rs 1.6 lakh, and that’s before registration and insurance charges, making it the most expensive scooter on sale in India. That said, when it comes to performance and technology, the 450X is not just the leader in the electric scooter space but the entire scooter segment in the country.
Each full charge on the Ather is estimated to cost around Rs 12-20 (3kWh). Compare that to the infinitely growing prices of fuel and you’ll end up saving a substantial amount of money in the long run. Regardless of the low running costs, there’s no escaping that the 450X is an expensive product, but you get the quality and capability that you’re paying for.
