Can Ather’s quality beat Ola’s scale?
- Ather has technology and credibility. Ola has deeper pockets. Who will win the 2-wheeler EV race?
New Delhi: Swapnil Jain and Tarun Mehta didn’t know each other when they entered the portals of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras in 2007. By the time they graduated a few years later, the two design engineers had become friends. For a time, they went their separate ways, with Mehta going to Ashok Leyland while Jain ended up in General Motors. They would reunite not long after to establish Ather Energy, which would go on to become one of India’s largest electric two-wheeler companies.
