Taiwan-based Gogoro announced a strategic B2B initiative and partnership with Zypp Electric, one of India’s leading EV-as-a-Service platforms to launch a battery-swapping pilot in India. Together, the companies are focused on accelerating the urban shift of logistics fleets and last-mile deliveries to electric using battery swapping.
To be launched in Delhi next month, the project will include Gogoro Network GoStations, Gogoro Smart Batteries and Gogoro Smartscooters. The data and findings from this pilot project will pave way for the company to scale its operations in India.
Gogoro is said to be a leader when it comes to EV battery-swapping technology. The company has recorded over 350 million battery swaps to date and is now looking to introduce its platform in India. It propagates technology that is viewed by industry experts and the government as a viable solution for promoting the adoption of electric two-wheelers in India’s densely populated cities.
Last year, Gogoro also announced its partnership with Hero MotoCorp. Both companies intend to co-develop electric vehicles and set up a network of battery-swapping stations across India. Stay tuned for more updates on Gogoro’s developments.
