Hero MotoCorp Ltd, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, is in plans to offer a flexible charging ecosystem that will include fixed stations and battery swapping units to the customers, said a senior executive from the company
The company very recently announced a partnership with Taiwan’s leading EV player Gogoro with the help of which it plans to develop EV programmes that include the development of fixed charging systems. There are also plans to bring battery swapping systems in the country. Gogoro has currently a network of more than 2000 battery swapping stations. With this partnership, the company is accelerating EV push in the Indian market.
Presently, a dedicated team is working on Hero’s EV plans under the company’s emerging mobility business unit, which was created two years ago. This team is working on all aspects of the EV business model including sourcing, manufacturing, marketing and sales, among other areas.
