Sun Mobility, a company specializing in energy infrastructure and services for electric vehicles (EVs), is set to join forces with Swiggy, the on-demand convenience delivery platform, with a goal to electrify over 15,000 e-bikes within their delivery fleet over the next year.
In this collaborative effort, Swiggy’s final-mile delivery e-bike fleet will gain access to SUN Mobility’s cutting-edge battery-swapping technology and an extensive network of battery-swapping stations, as indicated in an official company statement.
“We are happy to partner with the company to drive the adoption of electric mobility in India,” said Anant Badjatya, CEO, SUN Mobility.
Swiggy’s fleet delivers millions of orders each month, with delivery executives travelling an average of 80–100 kilometres daily. Mihir Shah, Head of Operations at Swiggy, added, “We look for ways to increase the adoption of electric vehicles in our delivery fleet. Working with SUN Mobility allows us to solve concerns about access to battery-swapping stations. Our delivery partners can keep going without putting in extra miles or delays due to battery swapping, all while giving them savings on fuel and vehicle maintenance and contributing to a greener environment.”
