It is an opportunity for us and the partners to prepare for the next phase of the automobile revolution and invest in skill development and employment for a new breed of retail professionals,” Phokela further stated.
Besides manufacturing electric scooters, Ather Energy is also setting up its own charging station known as Ather Grid.
