Following TV, Ola Electric and Ather Energy, Ampere has now increased the price of its electric scooters in India due to reduced FAME 2 subsidies. Customers are now required to pay up to Rs 39,000 for the Ampere electric scooter.
Ampere is one of the companies that tops the EV sales charts, along with Hero Electric and Okinawa. It maintained earlier sales figures and retained eligibility for FAME-II subsidies.
Earlier, the government decided to reduce the subsidy to 15%, which had previously been maintained at 40% of the pre-showroom cost. This has led electric car companies to raise the cost of electric scooters. Here are the current prices for the company’s products.
Ampere electric scooter new price
Ampere has confirmed that the prices of the Ampere Zeal EX, Magnus EX and Primus electric scooters have increased from Rs 20,900 to Rs 39,100.
The most affordable product in the Ampere range is the Zeal EX, which has gone up by Rs 20,900 after the price increase. It was previously priced at Rs 75,000. After the price increase, it will be priced at Rs 95,900. Meanwhile, the Ampere Magnus EX has seen a price hike of Rs 21,000 and is currently priced at Rs 1,04,900. Both electric scooters claim an IDC range of 80-100 km on a single charge.
The price of the Primus has increased by Rs 3.9 lakh from the previous Rs 1.09 lakh. The electric scooter is the company’s first in-house product and the only Ampere product to use LFP batteries. The cost of the Primus is currently set at Rs 1.49 lakh, up almost Rs 40,000.
These price increases could slow overall sales of electric scooters in the short term.
