Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gill stated battery swapping is a good catalyst for the exponential growth of electric two-wheelers in the country as it will reduce the upfront cost of buying a two-wheeler and also help in eliminating the range anxiety of users. “We have now developed e two-wheelers that will seamlessly integrate with Sun Mobility’s hi-tech swapping stations so as to give years of trouble-free performance of the composite solution," added Gill.
The mobility company informed about its modular smart batteries that are safe and efficient and solve issues such as longer charging times and range anxiety by providing the owner with the option to swap his or her EV battery in a couple of minutes. The network of Quick Interchange Stations or Swap Points that also works on a Pay-Per-Use will also help individuals, e-commerce companies and fleet operators to use EVs for their last-mile connectivity.
Co-founder and Chairman of Sun Mobility Chetan Maini said the company is delighted with the collaboration. “The confluence of Hero Electric’s futuristic vision on understanding the EV space and the pros of the battery swapping technology, along with the government’s commendable initiatives to come up with tangible policies, will definitely augur well with our common goal to accelerate the demand and adoption of EVs in the country," said Maini.
