Battery swapping giant Gogoro powers 90% of Taiwan’s electric scooters, partners with top manufacturers to drive growth in sustainable transportation.
Gogoro, a global technology leader in battery swapping ecosystems that enable sustainable mobility solutions for cities, announced that it led electric scooter sales in Taiwan in 2022 for the seventh straight year and its partner A-Motor was the number two electric scooter maker.
The Taiwan government released its annual scooters sales report for 2022 that highlighted the continued growth of electric scooters accounting for 12-percent of all scooters sold. The report also demonstrated Gogoro’s continued leadership in two-wheel electric mobility with Gogoro Network battery swapping powering 90-percent of all electric scooters in Taiwan including five out of the top six electric vehicle makers.
“We are proud of the progress Gogoro and its partners are making to lead Taiwan into a smarter and cleaner future. With five out of the top six electric scooter makers using Gogoro Network battery swapping, Gogoro is powering 90% of all electric scooters in Taiwan and there are now more Gogoro Network battery swapping locations than gas stations across Taiwan’s major cities,”Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro.
The Gogoro Network is a new generation of swappable battery refueling that is smart, safe and continually optimizing itself to be dynamic and versatile for riders, businesses and communities. The Gogoro Network supports more than 524,000 riders and has more than 1.1 million smart batteries in circulation through its network of 12,200 battery swapping GoStations at over 2,504 locations. With more than 390,000 daily battery swaps and more than 370 million total battery swaps to date, Gogoro Network battery swapping has saved more than 250,000 tons of CO2 since it launched.
Gogoro was founded in 2011 to rethink urban energy and inspire the world to move through cities in smarter and more sustainable ways. The company leverages the power of innovation to change the way urban energy is distributed and consumed. Gogoro’s battery swapping and vehicle platforms offer a smart, proven and sustainable long-term ecosystem for delivering a new approach to urban mobility.
The company has been making significant strides in the industry the past few years. Just last March, the company announced a partnership with Yamaha to launch the EMF in Taiwan, utilizing their advanced battery swapping systems. Following this, Gogoro achieved a significant milestone by producing their one millionth battery. Furthermore, the company made a groundbreaking achievement by unveiling a prototype of their first solid state battery, which is expected to increase capacity by 140%. In April, Gogoro went public on the NYSE, and continues to expand their reach and partnerships on a global scale.
With its innovative battery swapping technology and partnerships with leading companies in the industry, Gogoro is solidifying its position as a global leader in the light electric motorcycle market, and continues to expand its reach across the world.
