The US-based startup has a battery production plant in Greater Noida and has reached an agreement with Hyderabad-based Rap Eco Motors to provide its replaceable lithium-ion battery technology to Hyderabad Rap Eco Motors.

Power Global and Rap Eco Motors have teamed up to deliver 50,000 "Made in India" electric auto rickshaws based on replaceable eZee modules.

Power Global, a clean energy and mobility startup based in the United States, announced that its eZee replaceable lithium-ion battery technology has been used by Hyderabad-based auto rickshaw manufacturer Rap Eco Motors for 50,000 electric vehicles (EVs). 

Rap Eco will use eZee replaceable lithium batteries in its electric tricycle product line RANIE. The RANIE product line includes L3 and L5 passenger automatic rickshaws, delivery vehicles and trucks.

After launching the product in April 2022, Power Global and Rap Eco will cooperate to produce 50,000 electric autonomous rickshaws in the next five years.

The cooperation with Rap Eco is a huge boost for Power Global, as its goal is to deploy 10,000 batteries and light mobile electric retrofit kits supported by its battery exchange network by the end of 2022.

Power Global has a battery production plant in Greater Noida, India, which will become the country's largest domestic lithium-ion battery manufacturer with an annual capacity of 400,000 modules.

Indian automakers are adopting solutions such as battery replacement to reduce the upfront cost of electric vehicles to increase access to and accelerate the country’s clean energy transition.

In order to support India’s domestic battery manufacturing capabilities, Power Global is working with local battery manufacturers to develop 100% battery modules made in India. These battery modules are at the core of Power Global's Energy as a Service (EaaS) program, which will provide battery replacement kiosks at specific locations across India and enable Power Global to monitor the battery life cycle from application to secondary life.

In addition to meeting the needs of the domestic market, Rap Eco Motors also delivers electric rickshaws to countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. The cooperation with Power Global marks its first step towards developing a comprehensive solution for its electric autonomous rickshaw RANIE, which is based on Power Global's 48-volt pluggable eZee battery module.
