ElectroRide partners with Battery Smart to establish 2,500 battery swapping stations in five years

ElectroRide, a multi-brand electric vehicles retail chain, has partnered with Battery Smart, to set up battery swapping stations across 2,500 locations across India, in the next five years. 

The first phase of this collaboration will see Battery Smart set-up 50 swap stations at ElectroRide locations across Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

The partnership is aimed at making electric mobility adoption simple, economical, and efficient, by creating more EV swapping infrastructure, tying into Battery Smart’s goal of giving EV users access to swap stations within a 1 km radius with zero wait time.

Rahul Goenka, Director of ElectroRide said, “The deployment of 2,500 battery swapping stations is a testament to our vision for a sustainable and accessible electric vehicle infrastructure in India. The strategic placement of these stations aims to cater to the needs of urban and intercity electric vehicle commuters, fostering a paradigm shift towards cleaner and efficient mobility solutions.”

Operationalised in June 2020, Battery Smart has rapidly scaled to 1000 stations across 30 cities, completing over 35 million swaps. By utilising Battery Smart’s Battery-as-a-service (BaaS) model, EV users can swiftly replace depleted EV batteries within 2 minutes with fully charged ones.

“We are excited to partner with ElectroRide as they continue strengthening India’s EV infrastructure. With the growing adoption and acceptance of electric vehicles nationwide, it is crucial to expand access to battery swapping stations. This will enable two and three-wheeler EV users to benefit from the convenience, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency that battery swapping offers,” added Nishant Garg, Senior Director – Expansion, Battery Smart.

Subsequent phases of the project will see a rapid expansion of the network, covering additional regions to ensure widespread accessibility. In its last-mile mobility solutions, ElectroRide also intends to deploy 30,000 vehicles, incorporating battery swapping technology to extend their range.

An arm of Goenka Green, ElectroRide is a multi-brand e-mobility product solutions company which offers an array of products including motorcycles, three wheelers, and eco-mobility solutions. The company provides after-sales support and is actively participating in developing and deploying e-vehicle charging infrastructure across the country. With a strong footprint in the northern part of India, ElectroRide further plans to expand its reach in South India.
