This follows a partnership with VoltUp - a one-stop solution to better swapping for 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler vehicle startup. 
“The partnership has unveiled 2 battery swapping stations in Jaipur,” VoltUp said. “In their efforts to set up smart electric mobility stations across India for e-vehicles, the partnership looks to open 50 such battery swapping solutions centres across India in the next six months.” The lack of charging infrastructure, high cost of adoption, and long charging time for EVs have been the hurdles and challenges towards the adoption of electric mobility in India. “To plug these gaps, VoltUp and HPCL have come together towards setting and scaling up infrastructure bridging the gap for network, energy and technology.”
