Today, energy for EVs is complicated, slow, & expensive – limiting freedom for EVs. Founded in 2022 by Arun Vinayak & Sanjay Byalal, Exponent Energy simplifies energy for EVs, making it rapid and affordable.

Exponent and Formula Bharat have a close connection. In fact, a majority of Exponent’s founding team are formula student alumni including Arun Vinayak, who co-founded Raftaar Formula Racing. Many of its engineers have participated in and organized various Formula Student events – so much so that Exponent’s core philosophy of Break. Believe. Build took root in these student competitions. The same passion for building a student race car has pivoted into something bigger – to build the future of energy. These principles inspired by Formula student competitions have driven them to build their own battery pack (e^pack) & charging station (e^pump) which together unlock a 15-minute full charge using regular Li-ion cells on EVs with any number of wheels.
