TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwanese startup Gogoro announced Tuesday that riders of
their Smartscooters will soon be able to change batteries at PX Mart (全聯福利中心), a leading supermarket chain in Taiwan, making it more convenient for them to power up their scooters.
The hi-tech Smartscooter, often dubbed as “the Tesla of scooters,” runs on two swappable Lithium batteries. Riders are able to swap out depleted batteries at over 300 Gogoro charging stations across the nation’s urban regions, including gas stations, MRT stations, convenient stores, and shopping malls.
The company announced today that more charging stations, or GoStations, will be installed at 20 of the PX Mart branches across the island by the end of June, and the network will be further expanded by the end of 2017 to cover the western part of Taiwan. Customers will be given more options to recharge their scooters without having to worry about dead batteries. [FULL STORY]
