Electric vehicle solution firm SUN Mobility has entered into a partnership with electric vehicle fleet operator SmartE to deploy its universal energy infrastructure.
SmartE’s fleet of electric three-wheelers will make use of SUN Mobility’s solution and will be deployed at SmartE Park & Charge Hubs across the Delhi-NCR, to bolster its first and last-mile connectivity services, as per a joint release.
Under the partnership, the duo will leverage their expertise in product and solution to drive convenient, affordable and zero-emission last mile connectivity for the NCR region.
Goldie Srivastava, Co-Founder and CEO, SmartE, said, “The partnership underscores our commitment to make last-mile commute easy, safe, affordable and eco-friendly for everyone. SUN Mobility’s Interoperable Smart Mobility solution will enable us to rapidly scale up our vision without having to worry about the energy infrastructure.”
The month-long field trials for this solution were successfully concluded in Gurugram last week and the partnership will see SUN Mobility scaling the battery swapping infrastructure over the next 3 months to support 500 electric three-wheelers in Phase 1.
“The partnership with SmartE will enable us to tangibly impact the lives of hundreds of people by making ‘refueling’ of electric vehicles faster, cheaper and more convenient for them to adopt,” said Chetan Maini, Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman, SUN Mobility.
