Battery Swapping for Electric Two-Wheelers in India

Strategy Hinterlands

The report identifies solutions to batter swapping application on two-wheelers to aid in India’s EV transition. The battery swapping model promises future reductions in battery price which in turn would further accelerate the adoption of EVs in India. It would serve to allay concerns related to range anxiety and would reduce the upfront cost of EVs in the country. The report focuses on the time benefit of avoiding point charging and how stakeholders, especially battery swapping operators (BSOs), could be supported in maintaining best practices for operational safety and end-of-life care.
