Bounce, today registered more than 10 lakh battery swaps on its energy infrastructure network, – Bounce Infinity. With this landmark, Bounce becomes the first Indian energy infrastructure company to achieve such a remarkable accomplishment in the country. This is a testament to the company’s technological prowess and commitment to make mobility affordable and accessible to all.
The Infinity swapping stations work on similar principles to a fuel station. Here, Infinity battery swapping stations will have charged and ready-to-go batteries that customers can easily swap with their near-empty batteries in under a few minutes. With this infrastructure in place, customers wouldn’t have to wait for the scooter to charge, be anxious about the range or remember to charge it.
Bounce is amplifying its battery swapping network in line to its recently launched consumer electric scooter, the Bounce Infinity E1. The scooter which was unveiled in December, comes with ‘Battery as a service’ option – the first-of-its-kind in the Indian market. This pushes the running costs of the scooter down substantially, by as much as 40% compared to conventional scooters. The Bounce Infinity E1 will also be offered with the battery, which can be removed from the scooter and charged by customers at their home or office or wherever convenient.
Bounce has recently partnered with brands such as Nobroker, Park+, Readyassist, [email protected], HelloWorld, Goodbox etc to set up infrastructure to support ten lakh+ scooters in the next 12-24 months. This smart framework will be available at locations as diverse as residential complexes, petrol bunks, restaurants, cafes, co-living spaces, corporate offices, kirana stores, etc.; making it extremely convenient for consumers to access the nearest swapping station. Bounce is also leveraging its battery swapping expertise to other OEM players to support interoperability for faster adoption of EV mobility.
