The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and SUN Mobility have collaborated to improve last-mile connectivity in Dwarka, New Delhi. Both the companies unveiled a fleet of electric three-wheelers that will service eight metro stations in the Dwarka sub-city. The initial 50-vehicle fleet is part of the Delhi Government’s initiative to encourage the use of electric three-wheelers in the national capital. DMRC also granted SUN Mobility permission to use land at the Janakpuri West, Dwarka, and Dwarka Sec-21 metro stations for parking and battery swapping facilities for its fleet.
The swappable battery solution shall ensure affordable shared fares for commuters. The fare shall be nominal at a base price of Rs 10 for the first 2 km and Rs 5 for every subsequent km. This will be the first time when mass adoption of e3Ws will take place in the capital city. This adds to the 12 stations that are already present at the DMRC premises.
In March 2022, Hero Electric partnered with SUN Mobility to provide smart-swappable battery technology to electric two-wheelers.
