BattRE joins Bounce Infinity’s network for swappable batteries

Bounce Infinity, a leading battery-swapping network has roped in BattRE, an electric two-wheeler manufacturer to use its swapping network.

As per the understanding between the parties, customers of BattRE two-wheelers will get access to Bounce’s battery-swapping station network which the latter will be setting up. In the first phase of operations, Bounce will establish at least 300 battery swapping stations in key cities.

The battery swapping structure is a pod-like automated unit that houses multiple batteries and keeps them charged and ready for use. The swapping station will be diversified across prominent locations including residential apartments, key parking spaces, fuel bunks, malls, corporate offices, fuel stations and kirana stores, among others. Bounce says its swap stations are designed keeping inter-operability in mind to support diverse vehicle categories. It aims to set up battery swapping stations within one kilometre of anywhere in the city.

To access the network, a user can simply find the nearest swap station using an app on their phone.

Vivekananda Hallekere, co-founder and CEO, Bounce said, “This partnership is a step forward in our goal of building smart electric solutions for India.”

Nishchal Chaudhary, founder, BattRE said, “The initial buying cost of electric vehicles is high and is currently not driven by use cases. I believe battery swapping infrastructure and BaaS (Battery as a Service) will be useful not just for personal use but will act as an important support system for commercial use cases.”
