Bangalore-based Sun Mobility, a leading provider of battery swapping services for electric vehicles, has entered into a strategic partnership with Japanese electric vehicle manufacturer, Terra Motors Corporation, to integrate Terra Motors’ electric three-wheeler passenger vehicles and electric two-wheeler platforms with Sun Mobility’s swappable batteries-based energy solution.
As part of the partnership Terra Motors has identified its three-wheeler and upcoming two-wheeler models that will be integrated with Sun Mobility’s smart swappable battery technology, and those vehicles will then be deployed in several cities across India. The collaboration will see these EVs run on Sun Mobility’s battery technology, along with access to its Swap Points, some of which will also be placed at select Terra Motors dealerships.
Akihiro Ueda, CEO, Terra Motors said, “Sun Mobility's network across India shall help create a convenient and comfortable EV ecosystem for our consumers. Moreover, this will be the first time that a charging and swapping infrastructure is being built in the east-India region. In addition to the introduction of public charging/swapping infrastructure, Sun Mobility's advanced technology and expertise, combined with Terra Motors' extensive sales network and brand power, will add greater value and establish the company as an innovative service provider.”
Anant Badjatya, CEO, Sun Mobility, said, “The partnership will create a strong presence across the country with robust electric 3-wheeler products and enable the two companies to tangibly impact the lives of hundreds of people by making use of electric vehicles efficient, cheaper, and more convenient.”
