  • Zomato's strategic collaboration with Battery Smart aims to provide delivery partners with access to a wide battery-swapping network, aligning with Zomato's ambitious goal of achieving 100% electric vehicle adoption by 2030.

  • Battery Smart, a key player in electric two and three-wheeler battery swapping, offers Zomato's delivery partners convenient access to over 800 swap stations across 30+ cities, ensuring seamless and efficient operations.

  • This partnership comes at an opportune time, following Zomato's recent turn towards profitability and its dedication to sustainable growth. The alliance underscores Zomato's commitment to driving positive change in the food delivery industry and shaping a greener, more eco-friendly delivery ecosystem.

In a remarkable move towards sustainability and innovation, Zomato, the renowned Indian multinational restaurant aggregator and food delivery giant, has announced a strategic collaboration with Battery Smart. This partnership aims to revolutionize the delivery landscape by providing Zomato's delivery partners access to Battery Smart's extensive battery-swapping network. This initiative not only enhances convenience but also aligns with Zomato's ambitious commitment to achieve 100% electric vehicle adoption by 2030.


Battery Smart, a prominent player in the field of battery swapping networks for electric two and three-wheelers, will offer Zomato's delivery partners access to over 800 swap stations spread across more than 30 cities. This significant expansion of the battery-swapping network promises seamless operations for Zomato's delivery fleet, ensuring swift and uninterrupted service.

The timing of this collaboration couldn't be more perfect. Zomato's recent turn towards profitability has been met with positive acclaim. On August 3rd, Zomato reported its first-ever profit since its 2021 listing. Chief Financial Officer Akshant Goyal highlighted the company's conservative approach in forecasting profitability for the upcoming quarters. This newfound profitability, combined with Zomato's dedication to maintaining sustainable growth, underlines the significance of the partnership with Battery Smart.


India's food delivery market heavily relies on two-wheelers for swift and efficient service. However, this reliance presents an immense opportunity for electrification. Battery Smart's well-established network of battery swapping stations across Tier I, II, and III cities perfectly complements Zomato's sustainability goals. By enabling Zomato's delivery partners to embrace electric vehicles, the collaboration lays the foundation for a greener and more eco-friendly delivery ecosystem.


As Zomato marches ahead with its commitment to the Climate Group's EV100 campaign, this partnership with Battery Smart stands as a testament to the company's dedication to shaping a sustainable future. With both companies synergizing their expertise and resources, the partnership not only elevates the quality of service but also drives positive change in the food delivery industry. With Zomato's visionary goal of complete EV adoption by 2030 and Battery Smart's innovative battery-swapping solutions, the future of greener deliveries looks promising and tantalizingly within reach.
