Electric, India’s largest electric two-wheeler company, has announced its
partnership with Bengaluru-based advanced battery technology start-up Log9
Materials, to offer Log9 Insta Charging battery packs for its entire range of
integration of Log9’s RapidX batteries will fully charge Hero Electric 2W
within 15 minutes, thereby delivering an uninterrupted ride experience. Log9
has leveraged its cell-to-pack competency to develop batteries that provide 9x
faster charging, 9x better performance, 9x lower battery degradation and 9x
Electric and Log9, together, will be deploying these batteries in the market
via outright sales and Battery-as-a-Service (BASS) business models. The BASS
model will allow commercial fleet operators to take advantage of the
operational performance of the Instacharge battery packs at nominal monthly
rates. Notably, Log9 has already tested its RapidX batteries through a series of
pilots across multiple B2B fleet operators such as Amazon, Shadowfax,
Delhivery, Flipkart, BykeMania, etc.
Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, said, “Unlike Petrol, the charge on a E2W is limited,
leading to shorter driving range. In the year 2019, we launched bikes with an
option of doubling the range. All our bikes also have easily removable
batteries and many of our customers are now charging their portable batteries
while at workplace or in their apartments. Some of the B2B businesses however
wanted to run the bikes continuously for longer hours with a minimal
interruption in their delivery operations. It is for such customers that we now
offer bikes with the Log9 batteries that can be fast charged while the driver
is having his cup of tea. This game-changing association will maximise the
returns on the logistics operations of these B2B businesses.”
