This smart framework will be available at locations like residential societies, key parking spaces, malls, corporate offices, among others, for customers to find the nearest swapping station on their Bounce App or Park+ app, the company said.

The swapping stations would work on the lines of a fuel station. 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, it said.

With this infrastructure in place, customers wouldn’t have to wait for their electric vehicle to charge, be anxious about the range or remember to charge it, Bounce said.

“Our objective is to have our battery swapping stations to be within one kilometre of wherever you are and to enable this we have partnered with Park+. This partnership is in line with our effort to build a battery swapping infrastructure for a million+ scooters in the next 24 months,” said Vivekananda Hallakere, Co-Founder & CEO, Bounce.

Bounce is set to launch its first consumer electric scooter, Bounce Infinity, on December 2 with ‘Battery as a service’ option – the first-of-its-kind in the Indian market.

“We are committed to scaling up charging infrastructure at a rapid pace through our network of solutions across corporate parks, shopping malls and residential apartments,” said Amit Lakhotia, Founder and CEO, Park+, said.

Park+ is a mobile app-based platform that offers solutions to every pain point around car ownership. The users can discover and book parking, buy and recharge FASTags, get a daily car wash, and pay traffic fines online. Park+ was founded in 2019 and is based in Gurugram.
