Bounce Infinity has announced a strategic partnership with Greaves Retail, the retail division of Greaves Cotton, to provide battery exchange stations for Greaves Electric Vehicles. With this partnership, Greaves Retail will become the first company to transition to the Bounce Infinity battery exchange network. The company has designated Bengaluru as a pilot city for this project.
As part of this partnership, the company plans to target 10 cities with 300 Battery Swap stations per city in different parts of the country to help Greaves Retail strengthen last-mile connectivity. Also, the battery change service will be for both electric 2-wheelers (Ampere) and 3-wheelers (B2B and B2C segments). All of Ampere’s popular models could soon be available to BAAS customers.
With this venture, Greaves Retail further strengthens the EV ecosystem with a wide range of multi-brand smart mobility commuting options, improved access to consumer sales and service.
Commenting on the partnership, Vivekananda Hallekere, co-founder and CEO of Bounce, said: “Bounce and Greaves Retail remain committed to bringing affordable and sustainable solutions to the market. We are happy with amps as our partners who will use our battery change platform. This gives more Indians access to affordable mobility at Baas.”
Commenting on the partnership, YVS Vijay Kumar, CEO – Greaves Retail, Greaves Cotton, said: “As we are committed to providing our customers with an uninterrupted ride with our electric vehicles, this partnership with Bounce Infinity will help us expand our offering and our leadership position in the EV space.”
The smart solution, which will largely be available in locations as diverse as residential complexes, petrol bunkers, restaurants, cafes, co-living spaces, corporate offices, Kirana stores, etc.; will power Greaves electric vehicles.
The Bounce Infinity changing stations operate on the same principles as a gas station. The stations will have charged and ready-to-use batteries for Greaves Retail customers; that they can easily swap out in minutes with their low batteries.
With this infrastructure, EV customers don’t have to wait for their 2-Wheelers and 3-Wheelers to charge, worry about range, or remember to charge them.
Integration has already been completed with Greaves electric scooters and should be made available for other models of the Greaves very soon.
Bounce Infinity swap stations are designed with interoperability in mind. The battery exchange network supports various vehicle segments, makes and models. The network is future-proof, technologically enhanced and accessible to thousands of customers.
Bounce Infinity aims to set up battery exchange stations within a kilometer of any place in the city. The company is building a robust swap infrastructure to support more than ten lakh scooters over the next 12-24 months. The company also partners with brands such as Nobroker, Park+, Unigas, Readyassist, Kitchens@, HelloWorld, Goodbox, etc. to set up infrastructure.
