SUN Mobility launched SwapX, a fully automated battery-swapping solution. The company also launched its next generation of Battery Pack - S2.1, offering a higher battery power with 45 per cent more range.
SwapX caters to a mass customer base especially small and medium businesses to set up and manage Swap Points™ from the convenience of their stores. The solution offered in a franchise model will address concerns of lack of infrastructure and long charging or waiting time by increasing network density and will encourage mass-scale adoption of EVs.
The S2.1 is a lightweight and robust smart battery with an enhanced capacity of 2.1 kWh. It is cloud-connected, interoperable, and safe to use. The S2.1 is AIS156 (Phase 1 certified) and has undergone over 450 safety and performance tests including climatic, cyclic, drop, and vibration tests. The batteries have been extensively tested with multiple vehicle platforms in real-world conditions.
Chetan Maini, Co-founder & Chairman, SUN Mobility, said, “The new solutions will be game-changing, involving every store in India’s EV revolution, while strengthening the growing electric mobility network in the country.”
“SwapX compliments our vision by greatly strengthening and helping build a high-capacity network. The station is future-proof and can charge the current as well as next-generation smart batteries. For franchisees, it is quite easy to set up with our app and only requires a 15-amp socket and up to 6 sq ft space. Every SwapX and battery is connected to our smart network to ensure seamless services from our team,” added Anant Badjatya, CEO, SUN Mobility.
