Zypp Electric partners Mechanifyspares for aftersales support

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 24 Jan 2022


Zypp Electric, an EV logistics company has partnered Mechanifyspares, an online EV component and spare parts platform to procure and repair more than 5,000 EVs currently on road. With Zypp Electric, Mechanifyspare aims to organise the electric two-wheeler market by augmenting the existing supply chain and proprietary technology.  

Under the partnership, Zypp’s dedicated team that handles repairs of its EVs will now be able to procure required spare parts by placing an online order and getting it delivered across the cities where Zypp is present in. Further, Zypp will also enable Mechanifyspares in becoming a one-stop solution for all sorts of EV challenges related to maintenance and repairing. 

Zypp Electric states that fast-growing Indian EV market is projected to grow by 90 percent to $150 billion (Rs 1,110 crore) in the next decade. While the ecosystem is training ICE garage mechanics to repair EVs as smoothly as an ICE, the lack of an organised spare part provider makes repairing inaccessible to many EV users. 

Akash Gupta, co-founder and CEO, Zypp Electric said, “As we move to fulfil our dream of putting 100,000 EVs on the road for last-mile logistics by this year, we’re super excited to create an end-to-end journey for all our partners with Mechanify. While there has been significant growth in the sale and purchase of EVs, there’s a massive gap in last mile EV challenges like maintenance or repairs. Having Mechanify on board will help us provide a well-serviced vehicle that runs without any problems. Mechanifyspares will be able to solve a major issue of procuring branded spare parts to our team and help us remove the bottlenecks we would otherwise face at this stage of growth.” 

Viren Thakur and Ujjwal Seth, founders, Mechanifyspares said, “While India saw growth in EV adoption and charging infrastructure, it lacks a connected ecosystem that resolves end-to-end problems. More often than not, industry, garage owners, suppliers, and others face difficulties in obtaining genuine two-wheeler parts due to the unorganised nature of the EV ecosystem. At Mechanify, we want to organise the unorganised spare part industry and address an underlying challenge hindering the EV adoption in India.” 

Starting April, Zypp plans to add 2,000 new EVs every month into its fleet. The company has already partnered with more than 100 partners across logistics, grocery, food and pharma sector, including Zomato, Swiggy, BigBasket, Blinkit, Flipkart, Amazon, Myntra, PharmEasy, Delhivery, Licious, and Spencers among others.
