Mumbai: Electric vehicles manufacturer Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) on Friday said it has entered into a strategic alliance with Bengaluru based SUN Mobility to deploy 10,000 commercial EVs with swappable batteries.
The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding under which the alliance plans to initially launch 10,000 units of OSM Rage+ with smart, swappable batteries across the country, it said in a statement issued here.
“This collaboration will give OSM the access to SUN Mobility’s nationwide network of swap points with advanced quick interchange station (QIS) and real-time visibility via a state-of-the-art, IOT based, end-to-end energy infrastructure management platform,” the company said.
SUN Mobility’s swap points are available at convenient locations such as IOCL fuel stations and it takes less than two-minutes for a driver to swap the batteries.
This alliance will make Omega Seiki Mobility’s entire product portfolio gain new value with easily swappable batteries making it the only manufacturer in India, to have a complete end-to-end mobility solution with its range of three-wheelers, the company said.

The ability to quickly get a new set of charged batteries will play a pivotal role in adoption of EVs in a market like India. More so for the e-commerce and logistics segments without having to worry about the energy infrastructure,” OSM Founder and Chairman Uday Narang said.
Commenting on this partnership, SUN Mobility Co-Founder and Chairman Chetan Maini said, “Our commitment is to increase adoption of EVs in the last mile transportation segment by making refueling faster, affordable, more accessible and convenient via battery swapping.
