SUN Mobility has launched its global, interoperable smart mobility solution for two and three-wheeler electric vehicles at their technology development center in Bengaluru.
According to the company its energy infrastructure platform works across various two and three-wheeler vehicles. This solution is being launched just two months after SUN Mobility showcased its smart mobility solution for buses, in partnership with Ashok Leyland at Auto Expo 2018.
The SUN Mobility solution for two and three-wheelers comprises of three key elements-
- a) Modular Smart Batteries that are intelligent enough to customize themselves to each vehicle type and versatile enough to be used in combinations of one or multiple batteries to meet customers’ different performance and range expectations
- b) Quick Interchange Stations that can be easily installed across a city, enabling customers to swap batteries quickly and conveniently in less than one minute, addressing any concerns around refuelling time
- c) Smart Network that connects modular Smart Batteries and Quick Interchange Stations, optimizes battery performance and allows customers to locate stations and make payments via an app.
SUN Mobility’s Energy Infrastructure Platform enables electric two and three-wheelers to be cost neutral versus conventional diesel/petrol ones. This unique platform shall be offered in collaboration with multiple OEMs and solution providers and will support a range of new models as well as retro-fit applications.
SUN Mobility is led by Chetan Maini founder of India’s first electric car, Reva. The company along with its partners plans to roll out this network of Quick Interchange Stations in a phased manner across various major cities, thus enabling customers to adopt electric mobility using an innovative pay-per-use model that reduces not only their initial cost of purchase but also overall operating cost.
