SUN Mobility has announced its new service offering – Integrated Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS). This integrated service offering provides customers with an all-in bundled solution comprising electric vehicles with the flexibility of an unlimited swap plan for the duration of the contract. Consequently, fleet operators can scale up their business in an asset-light manner while utilizing SUN Mobility’s offering with the lowest cost and highest uptime via a two-minute swap. Customers can rapidly deploy these electric vehicles without having to worry about the high upfront cost, difficult financing, and costly maintenance, and warranties.

The company’s battery swap technology uses Smart Batteries that are smaller, modular and interoperable across two-wheelers and three-wheelers from various OEMs and include tamper-proof GPS and advanced telematics. The company also operates a network of SWAP POINT™s across major cities that offer Quick Interchange Stations with two-minute swaps, high-throughput and optimal thermal conditioning for batteries. The heart of this overall solution is a cloud-based IoT platform called Smart Network that generates and processes vehicle and battery-related data in real-time and enables intelligent decision making for fleet and network management.

SUN Mobility aims to onboard over a million vehicles by 2025 to its battery swapping platform. It has already commenced MaaS deployment for the goods delivery segment in major cities such as Delhi NCR, Bangalore, and Chandigarh and plans to soon expand to other cities across the country. The company has onboarded hundreds of such vehicles across multiple fleet operators and has a robust order book to deploy thousands more.

Chetan Maini, Co-Founder and Chairman of SUN Mobility, said, “With the MaaS model’s bundled offering we will enable an asset-light business for fleet operators and aggregators. As there is a growing focus on the goods delivery segment, an integrated model like this and a well-developed network of SWAP POINTS™ will create a tangible impact on the e-commerce industry. The MaaS model is a key step forward towards our multi-pronged stakeholder collaboration approach to provide a robust and supportive infrastructure that will cater to the new mobility paradigm, making India a global differentiator and leading this mobility transformation.”

Ajay Goel, Co-Founder and Executive Director, commented,” SUN Mobility aims to bring affordable disruptive innovation to urban mobility by transforming the way people and goods move today. Given our aim to make electric mobility an economic choice for customers, the introduction of the MaaS model is a natural step towards making offering an integrated one-stop solution to the customers and drive this transformation in mobility.”

To further broaden the network of battery swapping infrastructure and make swapping accessible to customers at the same scale and ease as conventional refuelling, SUN Mobility will be expanding its footprint by setting up over 500 SWAP POINTS™ by end of the year 2022. Currently, with 65 Swap Points™ across 14 cities in India, SUN Mobility has powered over 400K rides and over 6 million km in the country, pioneering the roadmap for battery swapping infrastructure.
