“The Government of Haryana envisions a systematic growth of Gurugram, with one of the focus areas being electric mobility. As part of our efforts to reduce pollution levels and generate employment opportunities in the state & make urban landscapes greener, this partnership between SUN Mobility & Zyngo is a major step in advancing our vision to develop Gurugram as the ‘smartest city’ in the country. I am excited to see startups and innovative business models in shared mobility & last mile connectivity like battery swapping, that can solve key challenges faced by this sector for mass adoption,” said Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Haryana.

Zyngo vehicles powered by SUN Mobility’s swapping solution, intend to alleviate the key EV adoption challenges such as high battery replacement cost, battery maintenance, range anxiety and long charging time.

“The Ecommerce boom in the last 9 to 12 months has caused a surge in the last mile delivery segment. Players such as Amazon, Flipkart and BigBasket have expressed strong commitment to shift their delivery fleet to electric in the near future. Our partnership with Zyngo will allow us to accelerate clean last mile delivery operations, using vehicles powered by our open architecture energy platform. This enables ‘refueling’ of electric vehicles to be faster, cheaper, and more convenient,” said Chetan Maini, Chairman & Co-Founder, SUN Mobility.
