Under this partnership, Indraprastha Gas will provide infrastructure for the swap stations, while Kinetic Green will help these stations to be technologically advanced and attract customers. Battery swapping facility has been made available for two wheelers and three wheelers in these stations.
Energy Cafe mobile application has also been launched for locating ‘Energy Cafe’ battery swap stations, on which many information like location of stations, swap charges etc. can be tracked. Customers need to install the Energy Cafe mobile application to locate their nearest swap station. Along with booking the battery on this application, the facility to pay the charges digitally will also be available.
Indraprastha Gas Limited says that these battery swap stations are being opened near fuel pumps, parks and market complexes to make it easier for customers to reach. The company says that a fully charged battery can be installed at Energy Cafe stations in just seconds by removing the discharged battery from an electric scooter or three-wheeler electric vehicle.
Let us tell you that Kinetic Green is preparing to launch electric scooter in India very soon. The company had revealed last year that it wants to make a comeback in the two-wheeler market. Currently, Kinetic is manufacturing electric three-wheelers and electric rickshaws in India, but considering the increasing demand for electric vehicles in the Indian market, the company may soon make a comeback in the two-wheeler segment.
According to a report, the electric scooter from Kinetic will be powered by a 1 kW motor and will be powered by a lithium-ion battery. It will be able to run up to 70-80 km on a full charge, while its top speed will be 25-30 km per hour.
This scooter will be launched in the slow speed category, so the scooter can be driven without any registration and license. The price of this electric scooter can be Rs 50,000. LED headlight, daytime running light, thumb starter can be given in the scooter.
