SUN Mobility partners with Greaves Electric Mobility for swappable battery
New Delhi:
Leading energy infrastructure and electric vehicles service provider SUN Mobility on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Greaves Electric Mobility (GEM) to work together and evaluate the best possible solution for the EV customer in the battery swapping segment.

As part of this partnership, GEM and Sun Mobility will deploy swappable batteries for electric vehicles in the country, a joint statement said. With the government and key industry players recognizing Battery-as-a-Service to accelerate EV adoption, this partnership aims to further bolster EV adoption in India in the electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers categories by utilizing the same charging infrastructure.

“Through Greaves Electric Mobility, we aim to strengthen our leadership position in the electric vehicle segment and provide the best and affordable last-mile connectivity experience to our large number of customers across the country. Together with SUN Mobility, we would be addressing one of the critical elements in EV adoption in terms of range anxiety and providing an uninterrupted journey,” Ram Rajappa, Chief Technology Officer, Greaves Electric Mobility, said.

GEM has a range of electric vehicles across two-wheelers, three-wheelers, e-rickshaws, and e-loaders (across brands like Ampere, Ele, MLR Auto). The SUN Mobility platform would address all these vehicles using 1/2/3/4 batteries, giving customers a one-stop solution on probably the world’s first truly interoperable platform, the statement said.

With SUN Mobility’s industry-leading battery technology, GEM aims to use the infrastructure and battery for both electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers. According to SUN Mobility, its Quick Interchange Station network, which is spread across 14 cities, will make it easy for GEM to quickly roll this solution nationwide.

“SUN Mobility has always been committed to bringing forth technologically superior, convenient, and sustainable solutions to the EV space and this mirrors well with Greaves Cotton’s aim to bring about the best products for an uninterrupted future in mobility. Together, we aim to propel the common goal to accelerate the demand and adoption of EVs in the country,” Anant Badjatya, CEO, SUN Mobility, said.
