Piaggio has entered into a strategic partnership with SUN Mobility, for its swappable battery technology. As part of this tie-up SUN Mobility will support Piaggio with its smart batteries and quick interchange stations. Piaggio's upcoming electric vehicles will have smart swappable batteries with advanced lithium ion technology. These batteries will improve the overall efficiency of the vehicles with better pickup and increased mileage.
Diego Graffi- MD & CEO Piaggio Vehicles Pvt. Ltd said, "This partnership with SUN Mobility is a step forward towards providing easy, cost effective and eco-friendly last mile transportation. SUN Mobility's battery swapping solution will help us in fulfilling our vision of creating a sustainable mobility ecosystem without having to worry about the energy infrastructure."
The network of quick interchange stations will enable the electric three-wheeler drivers to swap their batteries in under 2 minutes thereby, addressing concerns around range limitations and long refuelling time.
