Hero Electric has partnered with Sun Mobility to deploy electric two-wheelers integrated with the latter’s smart-swappable battery technology. As part of the partnership, Hero Electric and SUN Mobility jointly will begin deployments in the next three months with a target of around 10,000 electric two-wheelers by the end of this year.
Sun Mobility’s battery technology and the interoperability of battery swapping infrastructure will enable Hero Electric’s customers to own electric two-wheelers without having to worry about battery and charging infrastructure. It also addresses the issue of extensive charging times and range anxiety, as the batteries can be swapped in a matter of minutes. The network of Quick Interchange Stations allows for a ‘refueling’ infrastructure that is faster, cheaper, and more convenient than the conventional petrol and diesel pumps for ICE vehicles. This solution also works on a Pay-Per-Use model that empowers individuals, e-commerce companies, and fleet operators to easily adopt electric mobility for last-mile connectivity.
Commenting on the partnership, Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, said, ” Through this partnership, we will be offering a variety of solutions to the customers suiting their needs and giving them the ultimate pleasure of adopting eco-friendly economical and convenient mobility solutions.
