ACME Group today said it has launched India’s first battery swapping and charging station for electric vehicles. The EcoCharge Battery Swapping & Charging Station comes with the advantages like lowest operating cost, fast charging, swapping time less than filling fuel, ACME Group said in a statement.
ACME has provided EcoCharge Battery Swapping & Charging stations to Ola for a pilot project at Nagpur city in which 200 vehicles, including bus, auto and car — all running on electricity — were launched in the first stage on May 26, 2017.
The pilot project was flagged off by Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari. ACME has setup battery swapping & charging stations with lithium batteries for electric vehicles at multiple locations in Nagpur.
It has plans to replicate similar swapping and charging infrastructure in other cities of India to facilitate adoption of electric mobility.
