The Somerville Electric Vehicle Company, or SomEV ("some-EV") for short, provides a network of Battery Swap Kiosks, built to charge and store batteries so that when a commuter riding an e-scooter or e-bike is running low on charge, they can pull up to a SomEV Battery Swap Kiosk and swap out their drained battery pack for a fully-charged one. This essentially eliminates the need for charging stations by creating a wait-less charging network. It's like a gas station, but for e-scooters/e-bikes.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Purchase an electric scooter, bicycle or moped from us along with the battery subscription service.

  2. Next time you’re riding around town and you’re low on charge, pull up to your local SomEV Battery Station

  3. Swap out your old battery pack for a fully charged new one that will be available in our custom locker system

  4. Get going to your destination! It’s as easy as that

How It Works

Never wait for your batteries to charge again!

With your custom Somerville Electric Vehicle, in three easy steps you’ll go from 0% to 100% charge, in a few minutes!


Step 1

Purchase a Somerville Electric Vehicle enabled with our swappable battery system!

Step 2

When your SomEV e-bike, scooter, or moped gets low on charge - DON’T PANIC! Just make your way over to a SomEV charging station, use your SomEV Key Card to unlock an empty charging locker and drop off your spent battery.

step 3

Take a fresh battery from the charging locker, load it onto your ride, and you’re ready to hit the road!

Meet Bertha!

SomEV’s very first prototype.

Bertha is a 1980 Comuta Car that we upgraded with SomEV’s swappable battery system, along with several other upgrades. She has a top speed of 45 mph, can go up to 20-25 miles on a single charge and has a daily swap out of batteries at SomEV.
