Powering the E-rickshaw economy | Chargeup
E- rickshaws are modern India’s public travel workhorses- you've probably spotted those nimble e-rickshaws outside metro stations, your reliable last-mile companions.
The e-rickshaw industry is experiencing rapid growth, and a critical requirement is a reliable battery-swapping infrastructure. Why, you wonder?
Because these rickshaws are frequently driven by migrant workers who don’t have access to charging infrastructure.
Delhi-based startup Chargeup is chasing this massive opportunity.
Offering a Battery-as-a-Service solution, they are on a mission to enable battery swapping and EV adoption for India’s E-rickshaw drivers.
Varun Goenka talks about the large opportunity in battery swapping, using smart tech to build an asset-light multi-location chain of charging points and how they are enabling entrepreneurship as part of their business model.
