Today, energy for EVs is complicated, slow, & expensive – limiting freedom for EVs. Founded in 2022 by Arun Vinayak & Sanjay Byalal, Exponent Energy simplifies energy for EVs, making it rapid and affordable.

Exponent and Formula Bharat have a close connection. In fact, a majority of Exponent’s founding team are formula student alumni including Arun Vinayak, who co-founded Raftaar Formula Racing. Many of its engineers have participated in and organized various Formula Student events – so much so that Exponent’s core philosophy of Break. Believe. Build took root in these student competitions. The same passion for building a student race car has pivoted into something bigger – to build the future of energy. These principles inspired by Formula student competitions have driven them to build their own battery pack (e^pack) & charging station (e^pump) which together unlock a 15-minute full charge using regular Li-ion cells on EVs with any number of wheels.

Ather Energy was started in 2013 by Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain, two engineering graduates straight out of college with the audacity to dream and challenge the well-established Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and replace it with an electric drive.

We built India’s first smart and connected electric scooters, the Ather 450 product line because we believe that’s where the future of personal urban mobility is headed.

Today, our product offerings include a third generation of the Ather 450X and Ather 450 Plus, public and private charging Infrastructure, and innovative ownership plans. We are also building a complete ecosystem for India’s electric vehicles – powered by indigenous design and all locally manufactured. Over our nine-year journey, we have scaled our manufacturing capacity from a small factory in Whitefield to two factories in Hosur. We have expanded our retail footprint with 65+ outlets across the country and are growing exponentially.
