Taiwanese EV giant Gogoro has announced that it will start its battery swap business in India on April 25, 2023. The company will open its first battery swap station called ‘GoStations’ in Gurgaon, Haryana. The company also plans to showcase Gogoro SmartScooters in partnership with Zypp Electric at the event. Gogoro announced plans to enter the Indian market last year, even planning to invest in developing battery swap infrastructure in the country.
Gogoro said its unique battery swapping technology has done over 450 million battery swaps globally through GoStations and it is now bringing this proven technology to the Indian market. The company has announced plans to invest around $2.5 billion in the market here together with Belrise to build battery swap charging infrastructure in Maharashtra.

Additionally, Gogoro has partnered with food ordering and delivery platform Zomato to provide last-mile delivery for its electric two-wheeler and battery swap network. The association will play an important role in Zomato’s plan to achieve 100% electric vehicle-based deliveries by 2030.
Also, Gogoro is expected to launch its electric scooters to the masses in India as part of its future business strategy. The manufacturer recently approved its Series 2 range of electric scooters, which feature a 7.2 kW motor and offer a range of 85 km for the standard model and 94 km for the Plus model (IDC). We expect to hear more about Gogoro’s plans for India, including new products and battery swap infrastructure, at the upcoming event.
