Ather’s new manufacturing facility is spread over 300,000 sq ft and houses two units - one dedicated to battery production and the other for vehicle assembly. The battery unit will have five assembly lines and the vehicle assembly will have two assembly lines. The entire facility will have an installed capacity of 420,000 units to meet the growing demand for its scooters.

The completely state-of-the-art, modern facility is in line with the Government's ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ and will further boost local manufacturing in the country. With a strong local ecosystem that has been developed, most of the supplier base for Ather Energy is in Tamil Nadu and neighbouring Karnataka, making Hosur an ideal location for the factory.
