Gogoro reimagined what electric scooters could be, now we're doing the same for electric bikes.
Gogoro was founded nearly a decade ago, to take an active role in creating the cleaner, more connected cities we deserve. We knew from the start it would take more than designing and manufacturing just another electric vehicle to make a real impact. We had to address people's needs in a way that worked with the lives and habits they’d already built.
In 2015 we launched our first scooter, and the Gogoro Network to power it. 1600 battery charging stations around Taiwan where a rider can pull up and replace their batteries with fully charged ones instantly. “Filling up” takes about 2 minutes - faster than pumping gas. And we at Gogoro can swap out batteries with newer, safer higher energy versions without a rider having to bring in their scooter for any replacement.
To reach these numbers, we’ve expanded from one model to a whole family of Smartscooters that deliver an urban riding experience for the different demands of city riders. We’ve learned that no one vehicle can meet the demands of every rider, which is why now we’re expanding our lineup even further to include ebikes. There are some places and some riders where an electric bike makes more sense than a scooter. And just as with our Smartscooters, we’ve rethought the experience instead of just applying existing solutions (including our own battery and motor solutions). The more people we can create fun, clean, electric vehicles for, the closer we get to our goal of transforming cities into safer, cleaner places.
Eeyo is the one more option for riders in our ever growing family, and we hope you have as much fun riding it as we have.
