The company is also targeting to retrofit around 8 lakh existing conventional three-wheelers in India for conversion into electric versions

Power Global, a US-based clean energy and mobility products startup, is looking to infuse around USD 25 million (around Rs 185 crore) to set up a lithium-ion battery manufacturing unit and battery swapping infrastructure in India over the next two to three years.

Power Global’s India subsidiary CEO Pankaj Dubey, in an interaction with news agency PTI, told, “We are setting up a (battery) factory now in Greater Noida. This would be a one gigawatt hour capacity plant…With this about 4 lakh batteries would be rolled out from this factory per annum.”

The company is also targeting to retrofit around 8 lakh existing conventional three-wheelers in India for conversion into electric versions.

It will tap these retrofitted vehicles for its batteries, which would be offered for swapping through a subscription model.

Power Global is also setting up a one gigawatt hour capacity battery plant at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh and will also produce the retrofitting kit from the Greater Noida plant.

On the total investment, Dubey said, “(What) we are looking at in the next two to three years is about USD 25 million initially and then when we scale up more investments will be required.”

When the company scales up, the investments would be much higher but they will be done by others such as infrastructure partners, he added.

Elaborating on the company’s road map, he said there are about 55 lakh three-wheelers which are on the road today with various solutions, mostly diesel and a bit on CNG and petrol.

“So we plan to convert almost 15 per cent of that in the next five to six years. So a conversion of about eight lakh odd vehicles is the target,” Dubey said.
