HOP Electric Mobility launches battery charging & swapp stations
Hop Electric Mobility has launched an integrated network of battery charging-cum-swapping stations which will be used by its users to charge a Hop electric scooter at home or swap a fully charged battery when outside in less than 30 seconds. The Hop Energy Network is a part of their initiative for the customers to reduce their range anxiety.
Earlier, the company had implemented a pilot network with five swapping stations and 50 batteries in Jaipur. In just six months, over 2,000 batteries have been swapped, adding 1,40,000+ clean km.
Ketan Mehta, CEO and founder of Hop Electric Mobility said that “With Hop Energy Network, customers will be able to save both time and money. Our charging stations are equipped with cutting-edge technology where users will be able to replace their batteries within 30 seconds with hassle-free replacement. Only a handful of companies are enabling users in such a drastic manner, and we are one of them.”
The charging stations are designed for easy self-use and come with an NFC (Near-field Communication) and a 15-inch HMI touch screen. The company is offering two battery swapping options, in which customers can choose as per their convenience. They can either go for a monthly battery plan of Rs2,500 and can swap the battery unlimited at any station or either they can choose the second option pay as you go service, where consumers use the service at Rs1/km only for the kilometres they ride.
