SUN Mobility partners with Pilipinas Shell to launch its EV battery-swapping technology in the Philippines.

The partnership between SUN Mobility and Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation aims to accelerate the adoption of EVs in the Philippines.

SUN Mobility, a provider of energy infrastructure and services for EVs, recently signed an agreement with Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation to deploy its battery-swapping technology for 2 and 3-wheel EVs in the Philippines.

The partnership aims to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in the Philippines by providing a practical and economical solution with zero tailpipe emissions. It also supports the recently passed Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA), which aims to promote sustainable electric transportation.

Under this pilot project, select Shell Mobility stations will soon deploy SUN Mobility’s Swap Points, which are based on state-of-the-art interoperable battery-swapping technology comprising of Smart Batteries, Quick Interchange Stations, and Smart Network (cloud-based IoT backend software).

This will enable 2 and 3-wheel electric vehicles to swap batteries at select Shell mobility stations in less than two minutes, providing a cost-effective solution with significant range. The pilot is expected to launch in the first half of 2023.

Ajay Goel, Co-founder and Executive Director of SUN Mobility said, “SUN Mobility is proud to collaborate with Pilipinas Shell to explore the mass adoption of EVs across the region, starting with the Philippines. In the future, we intend to bring our industry-leading technology along with our substantial on-ground experience after having deployed 250+ Swap Points™ in 18 cities across India, powering over 55 million km and ~3 million swaps so far.”

Jolo Valdez, E-Mobility and Innovations Manager for Pilipinas Shell shared, “Shell is happy to work with both the private and public sectors to develop solutions that will decarbonize mobility and transport. Both 2-wheel and 3-wheel electric vehicles are projected to be a major use case for logistics companies and other fleet operators in the coming decades, and this pilot deployment aims to test the feasibility of smart battery swapping services and technology for the Philippine B2B use case. We are also happy to receive support from our government agencies to test these new technologies and solutions.”
