New Delhi : Battery Smart, India’s largest and fastest growing battery swapping network for electric two and three-wheelers, today announced its partnership with GoMechanic, India’s largest network of tech enabled car service & spares centres. Through this partnership, Battery Smart will set up its battery swapping stations in 100 plus GoMechanic garages across India, with the first one live in West Delhi.
Operationalized in June 2020, Battery Smart has a unique partner-led model that has allowed the company to scale efficiently. The company currently has 450 active vehicles, completes 1,500 swaps daily, and has powered 3 million emission-free kms till date. With 71 swapping stations located across the Delhi-NCR region, the partnership with GoMechanic will help further scale Battery Smart’s operations across the country, while addressing one of the major deterrents of EV adoption – lack of charging/swapping infrastructure.
“We aim to revolutionize the EV sector by building mutually beneficial partnerships with leaders in the automobile and mobility space. GoMechanic has 600+ workshops across 35 cities and has aggressive growth plans. Their centres will serve as vital points for our customers to get vehicle maintenance, retrofitting and access to spare parts. This partnership will also enable us to quickly scale our swapping stations at key garages across territories,” said Pulkit Khurana, Co-Founder of Battery Smart.
Suyash Kumar, VP – Operations and Expansion at GoMechanic, said “We are always open to working with partners that keep us at the forefront of the electric mobility revolution and hasten EV adoption. This is definitely a step forward in that direction. There are several synergies between Battery Smart and us, as we both are looking to enable EV adoption by establishing a dense EV ecosystem consisting of swapping or charging, retrofitment and maintenance services, and this partnership with a leading player focused on battery swapping will empower us to do just that.”
Battery Smart aims to make adoption of electric mobility simple, economical, and accessible by targeting to have a swapping station at every square km area in the Delhi-NCR region. With the Government’s support and focus to register 500,000 electric vehicles in Delhi by 2024, and have one charging station in every 3km radius, this partnership comes at an opportune time.
