The sales of Electric Vehicles are booming thanks to the rising fuel prices. Besides increasing the charging stations, Central Government has also brought a battery swapping policy. The battery swapping stations will help the vehicle users to replace their discharged batteries with charged ones.
As a part of this policy, Hyderabad will soon get EV battery swapping stations in four different corners for the benefit of eco-friendly vehicle users. This is for the first time, Hyderabad will be getting battery swapping stations. Battery swapping is a costly affair as it involves the procurement of batteries at high costs.
Swappable batteries will cost Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000 each. The model works just like our LPG cylinders. Currently, the swapping stations cater only to two-wheelers and three-wheelers. You can just pay up for the charge and swap your batteries. Depending on the volume of EVs and their demand, battery swapping stations will be increased.
