Hero MotoCorp-backed electric two-wheeler maker Ather Energy is in talks with several state governments to set up a new manufacturing facility in the country, according to sources.

The company is said to be in talks with officials of several state governments, including Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana and Karnataka, to set up an additional manufacturing plant with an annual capacity of about 15 lakh units.

The sources said the company is in the last leg of negotiations and is likely to finalise the location within the next month. When contacted, a company spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

As per the sources, the company, which sells two electric scooters — the 450X and the 450 Plus — is looking at around 100 acres of land parcel to build its third facility in the country. Ather has a plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, with a current capacity of 1.2 lakh units per annum.
