Bounce is amplifying its battery swapping network in line to its recently launched consumer electric scooter, the Bounce Infinity E1. The scooter which was launched on the 2nd of December, comes with ‘Battery as a service’ option – the first-of-its-kind in the Indian market. This pushes the running costs of the scooter down substantially, by as much as 40% compared to conventional scooters. The Bounce Infinity E1 will also be offered with the battery, which can be removed from the scooter and charged by customers at their home or office or wherever convenient.
With a strong desire and determination to address the need to bring ease of commuting to people across many categories like small businesses, college students, workers and delivery agents, Bounce was launched in 2018. With first-of-its-kind, indigenously built using in-house R&D, Bounce dockless bikes were launched in Bengaluru in May 2018. A blend of advanced digital solutions with a seamless operations network on the ground helped Bounce become a popular and desired mode of transport across diverse economic and age groups.
In December 2021, Bounce announced the launch of its consumer electric scooter and battery swapping network under the brand name – Bounce Infinity. Bounce has committed USD 100 million for R&D, manufacturing of e-scooters and expanding the battery swapping infrastructure across India.
Bounce is backed by marquee investors such as Accel, Accel US, Sequoia Capital India, B Capital, Falcon Edge, Qualcomm, Chirate, Omidyar Network, Maverick Capital etc; and has raised over USD 220 M.
