HOP states that its electric vehicles come with noteworthy features: parking assistance, side stand sensors, USB charging points, three ride modes with reverse mode, LED console, dual disc brakes, remote key, anti-theft alarm and wheel lock, and additional accessories like internet and GPS connectivity.

The company is also planning to come up with an electric vehicle segment called the Hop Energy Network, which will have built-in battery swapping cum charging stations where the customer will be able to replace their discharged battery with a fully charged battery in just 30 seconds. In January 2021, HOP’s pilot network with 5 swapping stations and 50 batteries started operation in Jaipur.
