Electric vehicle infrastructure company RACEnergy, specialising in battery swapping, inaugurated its new battery production facility spanning over 10,000 square feet, on Wednesday. The facility is equipped with a 50 Mwh battery production plant, enabling the manufacturing of 30,000 batteries annually. This achievement is in line with RACEnergy’s objective of reaching 80,000 electric two and three-wheelers by 2025, taking a significant step toward their goal of having 250,000 swappable batteries in circulation within the same timeframe.
