SUN Mobility today launched its global, interoperable smart mobility solution for two and three-wheeler electric vehicles at their technology development centre in Bengaluru.
The smart solution for the two and three-wheelers comprises of three key elements. Firstly, modular smart batteries that are intelligent enough to customise 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.
Secondly, it has 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 refueling time. And lastly, Smart Network that connects modular Smart Batteries and Quick Interchange Stations, optimises battery performance and allows customers to locate stations and make payments via an app.
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.
“By enabling the electrification of two wheelers, three wheelers and buses through our comprehensive smart mobility ecosystem, we are addressing the current urban mobility crisis and consciously exploring solutions to change the way the world commutes,” said Uday Khemka, Co-Founder and Vice Chairman of SUN Mobility.
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.
The solution is being launched just two months after SUN Mobility showcased its world class smart mobility solution for buses, in partnership with Ashok Leyland at Auto Expo 2018.
