We are equally excited to partner with Omega Seiki and help equip their vehicles with our global interoperable smart mobility solution and alter the way people and goods move today. SUN Mobility has always aimed to bring affordable disruptive innovation to urban mobility and through this association, we hope to continue to bolster the adoption rate of EVs for last-mile connectivity across India.”

“The alliance with SUN Mobility is a key step forward towards providing our customers with an option of fixed, rapid charging and swappable battery with our entire range of commercial electric vehicles This makes OSM the only company to offer such a unique proposition.” Added Mr. Narang

The introduction of these new swappable batteries makes Omega Seiki Mobility the only manufacturer in India, to have a complete end-to-end mobility solution with its range of three-wheelers. These include a fixed, long-range battery, a rapid charging battery which dramatically reduces downtime and now a swappable battery option.  Breaking the glass ceiling, the OSM Rage+ Swap can be fitted with new, fully charged batteries within minutes.  

Both the companies share a common goal towards creating sustainable mobility with an integrated approach of connecting automobiles and society. The focus is to eventually create a clean ecosystem with eco-friendly, safe and congestion free mobility.
