Ather Energy has announced the launch of its next-generation public fast-charging infrastructure called Ather Grid 2.0. The company says that the new fast-charging infrastructure builds on the current generation of Ather Grid with enhanced features in order to support scale and future faster-charging capability. The installation of this public fast-charging network has already begun in Bangalore and Chennai, and the same will soon be available across other Indian cities. Ather Grid 2.0 was designed with the aim of redefining the future of public utility by creating a distinguishable, approachable, and scalable charging experience, the Bengaluru-based EV start-up noted.
Ather Grid 2.0 will have the ability to support future fast-charging capacity along with enhanced safety and faster bug resolution. The Grid 2.0 will support Over-the-Air (OTA) updates, allowing Ather Energy to push new features and bug fixes to all systems on the field in real-time. Moreover, the brand says that Grid 2.0 has improved durability as it is designed to handle degradation, making it more suitable for installations exposed to extreme environmental conditions. The modular design of the Ather Grid 2.0 also enables field serviceability of parts with a strong emphasis on remote diagnostics.
Ather says that Grid 2.0 will continue to stay connected at all times to provide real-time availability of all charging locations in every city.
