Bounce partners with Park+ with an aim to scale battery swapping infrastructure across 3500+ locations in the country. The Bengaluru-based smart mobility solutions plans to strengthen the EV ecosystem across India. The framework will be made available at locations like residential societies, corporate offices, key parking spaces, malls etc. This way customers will be able to find nearest swapping stations on their Bounce app or Park+ app.
“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,” as commented by Vivekananda Hallakere, Co-Founder & CEO, Bounce.
Bounce is all set to launch its first consumer electric scooter - Bounce Infinity on December 2, 2021 in the country. The scooter comes with ‘Battery as a service’ option which is first-of-its-kind in the Indian market. It will further come equipped with intelligent features and enhanced state-of-the-art equipment. The customers will get the option to purchase the electric scooter at an affordable price without the battery. Having said this, the customers will have to pay for battery swaps whenever they exchange an empty battery with a fully-charged one from Bounce’s swapping network.
“Park+ is on a mission to revolutionise automotive users’ experience through a technology-enabled ecosystem of solutions. Tomorrow’s automotive scene will be driven by EVs because of their advantages across the board. Absence of charging infrastructure is the biggest roadblock holding back widespread EV proliferation. 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,” as commented by Amit Lakhotia, Founder & CEO, Park+.
Talking about Park+, it is building India’s Super App for car users for solving day-to-day problems. Besides this, the company has built technology-led solutions for parking, FASTag, and access control in malls. Through this, customers can easily discover, book, and pay for parking at 90,000 slots in the country.
