Ather Energy has teased its upcoming family-friendly electric scooter, the Rizta, which aims to make EV technology accessible to a wider audience.

The flat apron and horizontally mounted LED headlamp integrated into the front panel give it a neat and modern look. The taillight mirrors the same horizontal theme. 

A spacious floorboard area hints at a roomy ride for the whole family. The new Ather scooter will compete with the likes of TVS iQube, Bajaj Chetak, Ola SX1 Pro and others in the segment.

Borrowing the Best from Ather 450

Ather's current 450 series has won praise for its performance, features and design. The Rizta will likely share the Ather 450's motor, battery and hardware. This includes speed of up to 90kmph and range of up to 150km on a single charge.

Smart and Connected Experience

Like the 450 series, the Rizta will feature a fully digital dashboard with a Deep View display. Riders can expect smartphone connectivity for navigation, charging status and more. Multiple ride modes and readouts provide optimization and customization.

Practical yet Premium Appeal

Priced around Rs. 1.35 lakh, the Rizta hits the sweet spot between the 450 series and more mass-market e-scooters. The contemporary styling and smart features aim to make electric mobility aspirational yet practical for Indian families.

Gearing Up to Electrify India

The Rizta represents Ather Energy's push into the mainstream. With a family-friendly range, price and design, it could make electric two-wheelers accessible to a much larger demographic. The Rizta takes direct aim at internal combustion engine scooters that currently dominate Indian roads.

As Ather Energy gears up to launch the Rizta in the coming months, it provides an appealing new option for urban commuters and families seeking an electric two-wheeler. Blending smart technology with practicality and value, the Rizta could electrify the family ride segment across India.
