The initial 50-vehicle fleet is a part of the Delhi Government’s initiative to push the EV adoption of 3-wheelers in the national capital. DMRC further announced its permission to SUN Mobility to use land at the Janakpuri West, Dwarka, and Dwarka Sec-21 metro stations to set up parking and battery-swapping facilities for its fleet.

The swappable battery solution shall ensure affordable shared fares for commuters. The fare shall be nominal at a base price of Rs 10 for the first 2 km and Rs 5 for every subsequent km.

This will be the first time when mass adoption of e3Ws will take place in the capital city. This adds to the 12 stations that are already present at the DMRC premises.
