Matter has launched their motorcycle Aera. The name is means the “winds of change.” Matter aims to disrupt through tech innovations and lead the electric vehicle (EV) transition with its motorcycle that is close to an ICE motorcycle with the technology used and at the same it is an EV. The gearbox, liquid cooling, the chain drive all help it achieve that aspect. This makes it the first EV where you will continue to lube the chain.
Matter AERA variants are called AERA 4000, AERA 5000, AERA 5000+, 6000+ with pre-register price for AERA 5000 will be at ₹ 1,43,999/- and AERA 5000+ will be at ₹ 1,53,999/- with one uniform pre-register price across India. Matter AERA comes in two battery capacities i.e. 5kWh & 6kWh. The pre-register prices are considering the central governments support through subsidies and GST slab. The state government benefits can be availed of by the customers during the registration process. Further, AERA 6000+ will soon be launched with a 6-kWh battery pack. Powered by a state-of-the-art in-house built liquid-cooled battery pack and powertrain that disrupts existing paradigms in the industry.
Mohal Lalbhai, Founder and CEO of Matter Group, said: “AERA truly represents our philosophy to be an agent of change, challenging the status quo through the tech innovations. We not only sought to create a mobility solution that defies expectations of what an EV can achieve in India but also create the pathways for wider transition to sustainable means of mobility. While achieving it, we would not like to accept that consumers need to pay a hefty premium to bring about the change. And hence, over the last four years, Matter has built a product from scratch, adopting vertical integration as its core principle and incorporating the invaluable feedback of its consumers. Today we are extremely delighted to make the most futuristic motorbike, the AERA, available to all fellow countrymen at an interesting price and with options to choose from. We are thankful to the motorbikers out there for their response and appreciation towards AERA’s design and technology, and we see that the AERA will be a pivot for major shift towards EVs, as motorbikers take that one step along with Matter”
