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.

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.
