Battery Swapping is XEV’s important innovation wich allows to completely reset the times for recharging electric cars, by replacing the discharged battery pack with a charged one in only a few minutes, giving YOYO owners fresh energy and maximum freedom to travel. Thanks to the partnership with Eni in 2021, the battery swapping tenchnology will be implemented in the selected Eni service stations.

In Paris, XEV presents the latest version of its battery swapping cabinet, which is more intelligent and energy efficient. The new cabinet integrates a smart battery management system that monitors and displays battery status in real time providing a simple management system to analyze and optimize the energy use. It also improves the safety and energy efficiency of the battery changer even in extreme weather conditions, up to 45° C. The new cabinet has already been installed at some Eni service stations, being utilized for the Battery Swapping of the XEV vehicles part of the Enjoy fleet, Eni’s car sharing service, and it will be soon available for private customer usage.

The autonomous driving version of YOYO

Committing to show the evolution of smart urban mobility, XEV and Teoresi, a Turin engineering company specialized in cutting-edge technology for the automotive sector, bring to Paris Motor Show an autonomous YOYO prototype, tested first in simulated environments and then on the road. As a result of the partnership with Teoresi, the driver-less autonomous YOYO prototype is developed to move autonomously in city traffic in the future, by dialoguing with infrastructures and services, including battery swapping facilities, for a safer and better connected city mobility. At the XEV stand, a touchscreen shows what the simulator “sees” while autonomous driving YOYO is on the road. Discover more about the partnership with Teoresi.
