Hero Electric has announced that it has partnered with SUN Mobility to implement 10,000 electric two-wheelers with swappable battery technology.

As part of the collaboration, Hero would employ SUN Mobility's swappable battery technology to implement about 10,000 electric two-wheelers by the end of next fiscal.

"Battery Swapping is emerging as a good catalyst for the exponential growth of the electric two-wheelers in India. It reduces the upfront cost of buying a two-wheeler, reduces the range anxiety and the apprehensions about the useful life of the batteries.

"It certainly makes a lot of sense for the B2B customers as the swapping stations can be placed in the working zones for the riders to allow them to run their bikes without waiting for the recharging of the batteries," Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gil said in a declaration.

The company has now developed electric two-wheelers that will effortlessly integrate with Sun Mobility's hi-tech swapping stations to give years of trouble-free performance of the composite solution, he added.

"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 augur well with our common goal to accelerate the demand and adoption of EVs in the country," SUN Mobility Co-Founder and Chairman Chetan Maini stated.
