Recently Honda Powerpack Energy India Private Limited (HEID), a subsidiary of Honda Group, in association with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has launched its first battery swapping service in the country. This service has been started from 6th August at stations of Hindustan Petroleum.

Honda revealed the plans for the battery swap service in India in November 2021, after which the company has been working on making it practical. At present, the battery swap service will be provided only to the e-rickshaw drivers so that they can stop at the nearest battery stations to replace the discharged battery with charged battery.

Honda says that with the introduction of this service, the initial price of electric three-wheelers will come down. Since the battery will be available to the electric rickshaw drivers at the swap station itself, they will not need to buy the rickshaw with the battery, making it economical to buy an electric rickshaw. Honda is going to start this service in Bangalore initially. After the successful completion of this battery service model, it will be launched in other metros.
