Taiwan's Gogoro to begin battery-swapping operations in India on April 25
Taiwanese electric mobility giant Gogoro has announced that it will commence its battery-swapping operations in India on April 25, 2023. The company will inaugurate its maiden battery-swapping station called ‘GoStations’ in Gurugram, Haryana. The company also plans to flag off the Gogoro SmartScooters under the partnership with Zypp Electric at the event. Gogoro announced its plans to enter the Indian market last year and even plans to invest in developing the battery-swapping infrastructure in India.
Gogoro says that its unique battery-swapping technology has completed more than 450 million battery swaps globally through GoStations, and it is bringing this proven technology now to the Indian market. The company has already announced plans of investing about $2.5 billion in the market here along with Belrise to set up the battery-swapping charging infrastructure in Maharashtra.
