Gogoro claims that it is the first and only Smart Scooter. It is an Electric scooter with Out of the Box thoughts. Let’s see what is the package is about.



Gogoro is a well researched product and studied about the usage of scooters in the US cities (Mega cities).It came with reasoning that scooters are used for short commutation compared to Motorcycles. It uses a battery (Li Ion 18650) from Panasonic; exactly the one used by Tesla S. Battery Swap kiosk will be placed on the hot-spots and a customer can easily swap if he gets a battery Charge message. You need to find the nearest kiosk and swap the battery. Trials shows swapping of Battery are done within one minute compared to Tesla’s Battery swapping of six minutes. Mobile play vital role in communication through specific apps for the same.
Why is it smart?  Same is been answered! Total 30 Sensors in and out of the scooter which keeps tracking and report any issues if any part or function does not work. It has Bluetooth pairing capability with your Phones and tablets. Customization of both Head lamps and Tail amps; Tone modification for booting up and shutting down..It has filled a lot of features for the customer to feel fresh and new every time the ride is done.

Spec shows the speed as mph and acceleration 0-30 mph in 4 Seconds. Looks good in render and in the Proto as shown in CES. Cost is not mentioned and seems it will be similar to how Tesla has positioned. Gogoro has envisioned a lot about the product and have plan for swapping stations for the Batteries at many points in the City Hubs. Emission less Scooters will be the next big thing. Putting infrastructure is a big challenge for any Battery Operated Vehicle. Green Hopes!! that Gogoro will go for production.
