Gogoro To Start Its India Innings With Zypp Electric

Gogoro, the Taiwan-based global technology leader in battery-swapping ecosystems, has finally forayed into the Indian market with a collaboration with Zypp Electric (a last-mile logistics company). Starting from December 2022, the company will run a B2B pilot project in Delhi, with an aim to gather data and chart a course for future expansion.

  • Under this project, Zypp Electric will use Gogoro electric scooters to conduct its B2B last-mile delivery operations. Powered by a 1.6kWh battery pack, the Gogoro scooters will also benefit from the brand’s battery swapping stations (GoStations).
  • Initially, six battery swapping stations and 100 electric vehicles will be deployed for this project.
  • According to Gogoro, these battery stations will be modular and therefore can be scaled up in size based on the available space and need. 
  • These Gogoro battery stations will draw power from the grid but can also self-sustain for up to 64 hours in the event of a power outage so that operations are not disrupted.
  • The company also claims that the average swapping time is around six seconds.

  • Speaking of the e-scooter, Gogoro claims that its B2B scooter is as powerful as a conventional 110cc scooter. It is simple in design and the brand claims that it can take on the challenges of last-mile deliveries.
  • Gogoro has also announced that localization will be one of its primary objectives. The company has partnered with Foxconn in India for manufacturing purposes and has made substantial investments.
  • An e-scooter for personal use is likely to be introduced in the future.
