EV battery swapping startup VoltUp announced its partnership with Adani Electricity and Hero Electric to set up battery swapping infrastructure in Mumbai. It also partnered with Zomato to provide instant recharge to delivery personnel’s EVs.

Initially, VoltUp will install 120 swapping stations at ten locations between Goregaon and Borivali. By the end of this year, the startup will add 50 more points in the western line, from Churchgate to Mira-Bhayandar. The aim is to install 500 battery swapping stations across Mumbai by 2024, which will cater to over 30,000 riders daily.

The stations will provide fully charged batteries for all electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers. Users can buy a subscription, swap the EV battery in less than one minute, and have smooth and uninterrupted transport operations.

The startup will provide complete maintenance and service support to the battery. The swapping stations will be monitored via an Ops engine to maintain battery temperatures and cell balancing for higher efficiencies.

Siddharth Kabra, Co-founder and CEO of VoltUp, said - “In a fast-paced city like Mumbai where time is always of the essence, enabling riders to instant battery swapping will empower them to grow economically while doing away with range anxiety. Adani Electricity’s dense network and Hero Electric’s manufacturing of advanced and affordable products resonate with VoltUp’s business model of providing a complete green solution to the EV industry. This partnership will not only act as a catalyst in pushing the envelope of Smart Mobility in India but will also integrate green energy for charging batteries.

Speaking about the partnership, Adani Electricity’s spokesperson said, “Adani Electricity is committed to enabling Electric Mobility solutions for Mumbai, powered by Renewable Energy. Our partnership with Voltup is yet another in the space, wherein we are enabling access to our dense and reliable Network, with a strong commitment to supplying 100% Sustainable Energy.”

Sohinder Gill, CEO of Hero Electric, said, “At Hero, we have always fostered the idea of collaboration to strengthen the EV ecosystem in India to deepen EV penetration and attain zero-emission status. This smart battery swapping association with VoltUp, Adani Electricity, and Zomato will establish a dense infrastructure encouraging more riders to switch to EVs and operate smoothly without worrying about range anxiety issues. Hero Electric is the only manufacturer to have a specific product designed for delivery partner fleets given the segment’s potential to contribute towards a clean and green future.”
