Guidehouse Insights recognized Gogoro Network as the world’s leading battery exchange platform for lightweight urban vehicles in 2021, which is central to Gogoro’s ecosystem. With Gogoro Network, swappable batteries can be refueled smartly, scalable, and continuously optimized, making them more useful to people, communities, and businesses.
With more than 450,000 riders and over 10,000 swapping GoStations at over 2,300 locations, Gogoro Network is currently hosting 340,000 daily battery swaps with the grand total of more than 255 million battery swaps to date.
“Battery swapping is emerging as a breakthrough technology that could greatly accelerate the adoption of light electric vehicles.

The company has announced many partnerships over the last year, from Dachangjiang Group (DCJ), China’s Top ICE Two-Wheel Vehicle Maker, and Yadea, through partnerships with Hero MotoCorp India. Even important partnerships with other manufacturers to allow the company’s growth, like Foxconn, the largest electronics manufacturer worldwide.
Gogoro Network supports multiple generations of batteries, swapping stations and vehicles to integrate and work together. For example, Gogoro’s first batteries from 2015 can still work on its latest vehicles and can integrate across different generations of GoStations.
Gogoro established the ‘Powered By Gogoro Network’ (PBGN) program to help accelerate the development of electric 2-wheel vehicles that can integrate with Gogoro’s Network battery swapping. Provides vehicle partners with access to its intelligent drivetrains and controllers, components, and smart systems through The Gogoro Development Kit (GDK).
