Battery Smart partners with Zepto to provide access to 1000+ EV battery swapping stations

New Delhi: Battery Smart, a battery swapping network for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers, announced a partnership with Zepto, an e-grocery and express commerce service. This collaboration will provide Zepto's EV delivery partners access to Battery Smart's network of more than 1,000 battery swapping stations across 30+ cities, enabling two-minute battery swaps.

The partnership will support Zepto in deploying 10,000 new electric vehicles across its fleet in FY 2024-25. EVs currently account for 20% of India's last-mile delivery market, aligning with the government’s target of 30% vehicle fleet electrification by 2030.

Commenting on the partnership, Yogiraj Gogia, Senior Director of Fleet Business and Partnerships at Battery Smart, said: "Zepto's growth over the past year has been remarkable and now, with access to our growing network of swapping stations, we look forward to see will expand further by deploying more electric vehicles in its fleet.

The collaboration aims to ease the transition to electric vehicles for delivery partners through Battery Smart's battery-as-a-service (BaaS) model, reducing capital expenditures associated with purchasing EVs without batteries.

Highlighting the benefits of the partnership, Vikas Sharma, COO of Zepto, said, “Our partnership with Battery Smart gives us access to the largest network of battery swapping stations in the country, ensuring our delivery partners are always within reach of the exchange station, without any hassle Cost This will also allow partners to save time, complete more deliveries and ultimately increase their profits.

Battery Smart has established stations in Tier 1, 2 and 3 cities across several states including Haryana, National Capital Region (NCR), Karnataka, Rajasthan, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. This network will enable Zepto delivery partners to avoid charging downtimes and ensure timely deliveries.
