Tata Power-DDL to Set Up Battery Swap Points, Partners with SUN Mobility

Tata Power-DDL, India’s leading power distribution utility in Delhi, has announced that it will be setting up a network of Battery Swap Points across North and North-West Delhi under its partnership with SUN Mobility, an energy mobility solutions provider.

In collaboration with Tata Power-DDL, a joint venture of Tata Power and Govt. of NCT of Delhi, SUN Mobility launched the first Battery Swap Point with two Quick Interchange Stations, to serve the increasing demand of EVs in the Azadpur Area, one of the busiest marketplaces of the capital.

The stations were inaugurated by Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairperson of Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC) Delhi. Considering the volume of electric two and three-wheelers in the area, the partnership aims at setting up a broad network of battery swapping infrastructure that makes swapping accessible to customers at the same scale and ease as conventional refueling.

Commenting on this partnership, Ganesh Srinivasan, CEO Tata Power-DDL stated, “Tata Power-DDL is happy to join hands with SUN Mobility for setting up a network of battery swap points in the national capital. We are committed to a clean and pollution-free Delhi and believe we can power the ‘Switch Delhi’ campaign in a big way to establish Delhi as the EV capital of India. Together, we will accelerate the pace of EV adoption across vehicle segments, in this Megapolis with one of the highest vehicle densities in the country, especially in the mass category of cars, two-wheelers, public/shared transport vehicles, and good carriers.”

By creating a vast network of Swap Points across Delhi, SUN Mobility and Tata Power-DDL are supporting the capital’s “Switch Delhi” campaign via affordable, low-cost electric 2 and 3-wheelers that can swap batteries within minutes, to get a limitless range for its drivers and support the growing eco-friendly economy.

At the inauguration ceremony, Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairperson of DDC Delhi, said, “This initiative is perfectly in line with the CM’s vision to make Delhi the EV capital of India. We are very clear that zero-emissions are the future, and it’s nice to see private players like SUN Mobility and Tata Power-DDL matching the Govt’s ambition, with such innovative models, such as battery swapping, to help make this a reality.”

Ajay Goel, Co-Founder & Executive Director, SUN Mobility said, “Delhi Government’s innovative EV policy and ‘Switch Delhi’ campaign is leading the country in its endeavor to accelerate mass EV adoption. We look forward to working with Tata Power-DDL, India’s leading power distribution utility, to set up our cutting-edge energy infrastructure platform that makes EV’s affordable, accessible, and range anxiety-free, for a pollution-free future.”
