Leading EV player Ather Energy said on Sunday that it is in discussions with several state governments for the establishment of an extra factory to accommodate the demand as the adoption of electric two-wheelers stabilises somewhat following several fire mishaps last year.
Ather Energy's Chief Business Officer (CBO), Ravneet Phokela, told IANS that the company is increasing manufacturing production and intends to add 1 million units of capacity to its existing 400,000 annual capacity.
"To drive faster adoption of EVs, we continue investing in public fast-charging networks. With around 1,000 chargers installed across the country, we already have the largest fast-charging network for two-wheelers in the country, and this number continues to grow," Phokela said to IANS.
