SUN’s extensive battery swapping network will power the 2-wheelers; deployments to commence in February 2024.
Bounce Infinity, a made-in-India electric scooter, and SUN Mobility, one of the global leaders in battery swapping and energy infrastructure, came together to ink India’s largest-ever EV deployment. SUN Mobility will deploy 30,000 Bounce Infinity Scooters in key markets nationwide, starting with Bangalore and Hyderabad and extending to Mumbai, Pune, and Delhi NCR.
These scooters will create the milieu for SUN Mobility to bolster its journey as an Energy Operator. SUN Mobility will deploy these 2-wheelers under the Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) models. Customers, including third-party fleets, will power them through SUN’s battery-swapping network. This will enable the users of these electric 2-wheelers to utilize SUN Mobility’s vast and robust network across the country. Today, SUN Mobility has over 600+ swap stations across 19 cities in India, enabling 1+ million swaps and 30+ million km every month. Bounce and SUN Mobility also aim to launch this solution in export markets.
Bounce Infinity’s Infinity E1 scooter, known for its practical design and performance, has features tailored for urban commuting. The scooters are integrated with SUN Mobility’s swappable battery system and can achieve an impressive range of over 95 km per swap.
