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 a 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 a major shift towards EVs, as motorbikers take that one step along with Matter”
