Power distribution utility Tata Power-DDL has entered into partnership with SUN Mobility, an energy infrastructure platform and services provider for electric vehicles (EVs), to set up a network of Battery Swap Points across North and North-West Delhi.

Under this collaboration, SUN Mobility has launched the first Swap Point with two Quick Interchange Stations, to serve the growing demand of EVs in the Azadpur Area, one of the busiest marketplaces of the capital.

These stations were inaugurated by Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairperson of Dialogue and Development Commission Delhi. Given the volume of electric two and three-wheelers in the area, the partnership aimed to set up a broad network of battery swapping infrastructure that makes swapping accessible to customers at the same scale and ease as conventional refuelling.

Commenting on the partnership, Ganesh Srinivasan, CEO of Tata Power-DDL said, “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 in order 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.”

At the inauguration ceremony, Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairperson of Dialogue and Development Commission 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 is 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.”

Speaking on the occasion, 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.”
