Battery Swapping Solution for Efficient Fleet Management

Sulajja Firodia Motwani, CEO of Kinetic Green, highlighted in a recent exclusive interview that battery swapping is an effective solution for the E-Luna and B2B applications. Due to its ability to reduce downtime between deliveries by enabling delivery executives to replace batteries at a swapping station, this technique has the potential to grow fast in the B2B market. Reducing EV outages is essential to effective fleet management.
