Date: 09 Sep 2022

Hero Electric, the largest and oldest E2W company, in a strategic move to revolutionise battery swapping in Mumbai, announced partnership with one-stop battery swapping start-up VoltUp and Adani Electricity.

Committed to developing the EV sector, this is a first wherein an OEM, Infrastructure, Last Mile partners and a battery swapping start-up have come together to boost smart mobility.

The lack of charging infrastructure, high cost of adoption and long charging time for electric vehicles have been a challenge toward the adoption of electric mobility in India. To plug these gaps, all partners have come together to setting and scaling up of infrastructure – thus bridging together network, energy, and technology.

Sohinder Gill, CEO – Hero Electric, said, “At Hero, we have always fostered the idea of collaboration to strengthen the EV ecosystem in India to deepen the EV penetration and attain zero-emission status. This association with VoltUp, Adani Electricity, and Zomato will establish a dense infrastructure encouraging more riders to switch to EVs and operate smoothly without worrying about range anxiety issues. Hero Electric is the only manufacturer to have a specific product designed for delivery partner fleets given the segment's potential to contribute towards a clean and green future.”

The partnership is going to add 50 locations by year-end to cover the western line from Churchgate to Mira-Bhayandar.  In their effort VoltUp will set up smart electric mobility stations across the city for easy access to battery swapping, the partnership looks to operationalize500 such battery swapping solutions centres across Mumbai by 2024, catering to over 30,000 riders daily.
