The EV distributor has been working in the green mobility segment for the last five years. The inauguration of the battery swapping station was done by Shankar Lalwani, Member of Parliament from Indore constituency. The function was also attended by Gaurav Ranadive, Indore President of the ruling BJP. The guests welcomed the new initiative of e-Sawaari and also applauded the work in the segment of e-vehicles done by the company in Madhya Pradesh and the city of Indore. Smaller yet relatively affluent cities like Indore have become a battleground for two wheeler EV’s especially, where battery swapping is expected to play a vital role in driving adoption.

The company says that in the last five years it has provided direct and indirect for more than 10,000 persons. e-Sawaari Director Mohit Kumar Khatik, Anuj Jain, Saurabh Khandelwal, Tilkesh Bhatiya and Vivek Rathore apprised the guests and people present on the occasion about the technology and the importance of battery swapping.

The company held that battery swapping stations help in saving time. An e-vehicle driver would take less than 5 minutes to replace a battery and eliminate the burden to buy a new battery when the lifespan of one ends.

The Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) is bullish on creating reasonable infrastructure for the adoption of electric vehicles to continue the quest of the city for cleanliness and environmental sustainability. IMC is creating 113 electric vehicles charging infrastructure in various markets and busy areas of Indore that will include Siyaganj, Rajwada, Juni Indore, Jawahar Marg, Hathipala and Gadi Adda.

As per the Indore Municipal Corporation, 37 charging stations will be developed in partnership with Rajasthan Electronics & Instruments Limited (REIT) while the remaining 76 will be installed through public private partnership (PPP) model.
