Gogoro is going to Launch Battery Swapping Scooters in Philippines

Gogoro, a Taiwanese company, is introducing Battery Swapping Scooters in the Philippines as their next market in the coming year. This movement is part of the Philippines’ Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act to promote a clean energy revolution. Horace Luke, the CEO and founder of Gogoro, said that the removal of duties applies to swapping batteries and charging equipment. This makes it a great time for the company to start selling e-scooters all over the country.

He added, “The Philippines is trying to electrify, so we’re progressively saying we’re going to be the first one to take a leadership position in that and lead the market.” “We see a huge opportunity to grow the market because there hasn’t been a mass adoption of two-wheelers yet. “And as they adopt it, it would be great if it went towards electrification.”

Gogoro’s vision is to build a broad network for the Battery Swapping Scooters in the Philippines. That will be more reliable than locally manufactured two-wheelers and their smart scooters. Gogoro has already produced these vehicles.

Under Gogoro’s name, there are 11,000 battery swapping stations in over 2,260 places around the world.

The firm also wants to collect feedback to know about battery-swapping vehicles. Luke also said that Gogoro would gather data from vehicles to figure out a smooth entry into the market.

 He said, “More than 25% of Taiwan’s quick commerce deliveries and almost all of their electric deliveries are powered by Gogoro’s battery-swapping technology, and we see this solution being most beneficial to a densely populated region like Metro Manila, which is also the hub of business districts,” said Patrick Aquino, director of the Department of Energy. 

Energy Utilization Management Bureau in the Philippines, said in a statement. “The success of this pilot will pave the way for a new sustainable business model in other cities in the country as well. The Philippines can learn from Taiwan’s experience.”
