Gogoro Smartscooter Is A Future Scooter

In the car world we know Tesla that makes the high-tech electric cars, and in the motorcycle world, there is the Smartscooter from Taiwan, named Gogoro. It has a luxury design scooter and every detail aims to deliver a particular, exacting experience. The final design from Gogoro was introduced for the first time at the Global CES tech conference in January 2015, where the audience responded with marked enthusiasm.

Gogoro smartscooter is designed and manufactured entirely in-house by Gogoro in Taipei, Taiwan. Over three years, Gogoro developed its smartscooter concept in stealth mode led by Horace Luke as CEO and Matt Taylor as CTO. Luke and Taylor both, worked at Microsoft and got the important positions at HTC. Luke as former chief innovation officer at HTC, and Taylor as chief technologist at HTC. Both work together as a team to make this concept real.

One of the interesting concepts of Gogoro is a swapable battery, and not the chargeable one as Tesla has. You have to find the Gogoro battery swap station to get the battery fully charged. This Gogoro battery swap station will have more than 150 stations by the end of 2015, exceed the amount of gas station in Taiwan. The customer should pay a monthly subscription fee, although Gogoro gave early buyers two years of battery swaps for free. Gogoro is equipped with two batteries under the seat and has a range of roughly 37 miles.

As a smartscooter, Gogoro is easily customized through your smartphone, from the color of your dash panel to how much power the engine delivers. Moreover, it features dozens of sensors that monitor performance and maintenance for feedback to Gogoro HQ. We are able to know the fluid levels to headlamp replacement alerts, service advice, and more. Through this application, you can also monitor the scooter’s health, and adjust performance settings or just reserve a battery at your nearest GoStation so you know more power will be ready when you get there.

At this moment, Gogoro has been sold in Taiwan with the price around $4,000 for the regular model, and $4,380 for the Gogoro Plus, and the unlimited battery swap subscription is  just $28 per month. What an interesting concept, and the price is 4x higher than the ordinary scooter. Are you interested?
