Ather now has a yearly production capacity of 4.2 lakh units.
Ather Energy has inaugurated its second manufacturing plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, which will enable it to ramp up production to a claimed capacity of 4.2 lakh units per annum from the current figure of 1.2 lakh units.
This new plant is spread out over 3,00,000 sq.ft. and since most of the supplier base for Ather Energy is in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, it’s also located ideally. The new plant houses two units – one dedicated to battery production and the other for vehicle assembly. The battery unit will have five assembly lines, while the vehicle assembly unit will have two.
With the launch of the Gen 3 Ather 450X and 450 Plus, demand has been growing steadily and this new facility will help fulfil that. In October 2022, 7,293 Ather e-scooters were registered, as per the government’s VAHAN portal.
Speaking on the launch of the new plant, Swapnil Jain, co-founder and CTO, Ather Energy, said, “Rapid scale up is susceptible to quality issues, and delivering safe and reliable products to our customers is our biggest priority while creating a vision for the plant. With deep investments and innovation done on processes and machines, this plant will help us to further strengthen our leadership in delivering quality vehicles”
