Meet Gogoro — Battery Swapping Smart Scooter from Tesla

Posted in Connected Vehicles, and Technology

The Gogoro SmartScooter is the world’s first high-performance, zero emissions two-wheeled electric vehicle. It is the first product to be integrated into the Gogoro Energy Network, a battery swapping infrastructure that enables a more efficient, cleaner and flexible energy future for megacities.

Gogoro’s Smartscooter gathers, analyzes, and shares riding behaviors ten times a second to help riders determine what’s best for their Smartscooter’s energy consumption while getting the same performance.

This riding data is updated to the cloud, every 10 minutes, from the Gogoro mobile app on the riders smartphone or when a battery is exchanged at a GoStation via NFC. Gogoro gives unique control to each rider to select the specific ride feel and throttle acceleration, the dashboard screen color spectrum and the lock-and-unlock audio and lighting themes.

Gogoro Energy Network Battery-Swapping Infrastructure :

The Gogoro Energy Network is a modular battery-swapping infrastructure for electric vehicles like the Smartscooter that can be deployed across a city to provide portable power. This network is anchored by GoStations, ATM-sized vending machines where depleted batteries can be swapped for fully charged batteries in six seconds.

GoStations will be deployed within one square mile of each other and in places people already associate with vehicles, like gas stations, parking lots, malls, and convenience stores, to ensure riders have easy access.
