BOUNCE GOES BULLISH ON ITS BATTERY SWAPPING INFRA, PARTNERS WITH READYASSIST, HELLOWORLD, KITCHENS@ AND GOODBOX TO MAKE BATTERY SWAPPING ACCESSIBLE
Bengaluru, 1 December 2021:
Bounce, India’s first smart mobility solution, today announced partnerships with Readassist, Helloworld, Kitchens@ and Goodbox to expand its battery swapping infrastructure to 900 new locations across 10 cities. This smart framework will be available at locations as diverse as restaurants, cafes, co-living spaces, corporate offices, kirana stores, etc., making it convenient for customers to find the nearest swapping station on their Bounce App.
This comes at the back of last week’s announcement, where the company had announced a similar partnership with Park+ to set up over 3,500 battery swapping stations across ten cities in India.
Bounce is bolstering its battery swapping network in anticipation of the launch of its first consumer electric scooter, the Bounce Infinity, on December 2, 2021. The scooter will be offered with ‘Battery as a service’ option – the first-of-its-kind in the Indian market. The swapping stations would work on similar principles to a fuel station. Here, Bounce battery swapping stations will have charged and ready-to-go batteries that customers can easily swap with their near-empty batteries in under a minute. 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.
With partnerships like these, Bounce aims to set up battery swapping stations within onekilometer of wherever its customers are and also build a robust swapping infrastructure to support over a million scooters over the next 24 months.
