Chetan Maini of Sun Mobility was the pioneer of India's electric vehicle movement. Now, he is looking beyond cars, creating an energy management business. Driving in India is a painstaking task where people are stuck in traffic for hours on congested roads, which at times, are also filled with potholes. The drive to the suburb saps the energy out of every employee travelling there on work. On an average, a person spends three hours per day getting to and from Whitefield.
Not to mention the particulate matter hurting the lungs. If you ask Ambee, a Bengaluru-based environment startupthey would tell you that the particulate matter levels in India are well over the EPA prescribed norms of 15 micrograms per cubic metrewhich means even children are not breathing clean air. So, why does YourStory raise this topic? Battery technology will remove the pollution caused by vehicles and at the helm of that change is Chetan Maini.
Like Ratan Tata, overseeing the introduction of the Nano car as a change agent for aspiring Indians, Chetan believes that he can dream big. The company has already clocked well over Rs 15 crore in the first year. Chetan says, "This requires a significant amount of investment because we are looking at changing the very fabric of Indian commute.
It is significant because ownership models and financial models would change in the B2B space. Sun Mobility has collected one million kilometres of driving data from battery swap-based vehicles and is now ready to scale.
It involves Internet of Things IoTsoftware, telematics services, hardware manufacturing, and fintech services as payment service for the ecosystem, which will happen in its own closed-loop wallet. It is for the first time that such a plan has been put in place.
Sun Mobility, a startup jointly owned by the Sun Group and Virya Mobility, has been granted two out of the 10 global patents that it had filed. Virya Mobility is wholly-owned by the Maini Group of companies, which have funded the Reva project for a very long time. Niti Aayogthe policy think tank of the government, wants all three-wheelers to go electric bytwo-wheelers byand four-wheelers after Sun Mobility helps OEMs create a road map towards electric mobility by helping them with designing future vehicles and set up their entire EV infrastructure.
It offers battery swaps for buses, two-wheelers, and three-wheelers. The basic concept of battery swap is associated with the change of batteries at a battery station, instead of the battery being permanently fixed in the vehicle. The batteries used in the EVs are simply replaced at a battery swap station by using an IoT-based keychain, given to the customer. The keychain, once in contact with the swap station, opens up a pigeon hole in which the used Lithium-ion battery is placed for recharging.
The customer pays for the miles consumed per battery discharged digitally and then another pigeon-hole opens up with a new battery, which the customer replaces in the housing unit of the vehicle. It is also working in Gujarat, for the past five months, in partnership with Ashok Leylandwhere its buses are plying on a single route on this technology. Eight more buses will be added over the next year. All these batteries are thermally managed and are prepped to work in 45 degree Celsius.
Each bus plies around 30 km per route before the battery is swapped. This model will help the state and the city bus corporations come back in the black after years of being in the red, as the battery cost is taken off the pricing of the asset and it becomes a variable cost - since it is swapped - and is monetised only for its usage. Under the Faster Adoption and Manufacture of Electric vehicles schemeIndian states are going to order 5, buses.
Currently, Indian states spend Rs per kilometre for running on fossil fuels. The changing time from replacing the battery and getting a new battery is 30 seconds.SUN Mobility will deploy 'test stations in the field in the next couple of months since the technology has been developed', says co-founder Chetan Maini. The Bengaluru-based start-up is yet to set up any pilot stations, since it had been focusing on developing the core technology so far.
The stations, which use modular batteries suited to the entire gamut of EVs, will be set up at existing bus depots across the country, in northern India to cater to e-rickshaws and in southern India to charge electric two-wheelers. Incorporated in April to address the barriers of high costs, range anxiety and cumbersome charging associated with EVs, SUN Mobility is an equal joint venture between Virya Mobility 5.
Through a network of swapping stations named Quick Interchange Stations QISSUN Mobility aims to reduce the costs of owning an electric vehicle by adopting a battery-swapping model, where users pay only for the energy stored in the battery, not the battery itself which accounts for almost a fourth of the cost of an EV. Regulatory support such as permission to deploy charging or battery swapping infrastructure at public transit hubs like metro stations will ensure optimized use of realty.

Chetan Maini says that there is a large level of electric mobility in India at present. As he says, the electric mobility in India started with three-wheelers, two-wheelers and shared mobility and the country needs to be technology agnostic for more EV adoption. Speaking about the battery swapping technology, he says this makes sense in the shared mobility sector. Khan, Editor, ETAuto. Sun Mobility, which is based in Bengaluru, has sought power utility Bescom's help to identify a plot for the station, where users of two- and three-wheelers can swap their drained-out batteries with fully charged ones.
Users will pay only the cost of electricity. Uber will use Sun Mobility's energy infrastructure platform including swappable smart batteries and quick interchange stations to select OEMs for building e-autos. Both the companies will leverage their expertise in product and solution to drive convenient, affordable and zero-emission last mile connectivity for the NCR region. Chetan Maini's second company, Sun Mobility, is trying to change that, armed with an innovation that has already proven to be a spectacular failure: swapping batteries.
He also shared his view on how shared mobility will help in lowering the cost of mobility solutions. This platform will be offered in collaboration with multiple OEMs and solution providers and will support a range of new models as well as retro-fit applications. The energy storage solution provider says swappable batteries work well in scooters and rickshaws, and for big vehicles like cars and buses, it was a failure worldwide. Niti Aayog had stressed on 'expanding charging network and the growth of battery swapping stations' for the rapid adoption of e-vehicle in a May report.
I moved back to India in and launched the car in I could not launch earlier because back then, there was no way to register and certify electric vehicles. The new initiative, Sun Mobility, is a joint venture between a new Maini company called Virya Mobility 5.
