Uber Announces Partnership with SUN Mobility to Deploy E-Autos in India

As part of the alliance, SUN Mobility will offer its unique energy infrastructure platform, which includes swappable smart batteries

Ride-hailing giant Uber on Wednesday announced a partnership with SUN Mobility to deploy e-autos in India.

This partnership will be piloted across select cities in the coming months, Uber said.

As part of the alliance, SUN Mobility will offer its unique energy infrastructure platform, which includes swappable smart batteries and quick interchange stations to select original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for building e-autos.

Fleet owners and Uber’s driver partners will benefit because they can buy vehicles without the battery to save money on initial acquisition costs.

They will receive charged, swappable batteries as a service by SUN Mobility, thereby helping bring the overall cost of e-autos in line with their internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart.

“We are delighted to partner with SUN Mobility, an industry pioneer to try to usher in a wave of electric vehicles in the mass market category,” Pradeep Parameswaran, President Uber, India and South Asia, said in a statement.

“This is an important step forward in fulfilling our vision for creating a mobility ecosystem that is sustainable, provides cleaner air and helps build smarter cities across the region,” Parameswaran said.

SUN Mobility is a 50:50 joint venture between Maini Group and SUN Group, pioneers in areas of electric mobility and clean energy.

“Our mission is to give users a cost-effective and convenient energy infrastructure solution to accelerate the adoption of Evs,” said Maini, Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman of SUN Mobility.

“Partnering with Uber, the leading global player in personal mobility, will help create a wide EV landscape at scale, that will transform the way people commute,” Maini said. (IANS)
