TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — As domestic demand for electric scooters continues to rise, Gogoro says it plans to have over 1,900 battery swapping stations in its Gogoro Network throughout Taiwan by the end of 2020.

According to Inside, the electric scooter maker currently has 1,793 charging stations in Taiwan, including the six major metropolitan areas. The company recently won a bid from Taiwan’s state-owned petrochemical company — CPC Corporation (台灣中油) — to install 110 more battery swaps at CPC gas stations around the country.

This will bring the number of GoStations — Gogoro’s name for its charging platforms — at CPC petrol stations to over 348, making CPC Gogoro’s largest partner in terms of battery exchange stations. Gogoro Network General Manager Pan Jing-lun (潘璟倫) thanked CPC for its long-term promotion of the service.

Pan also pointed out CPC was the first company to partner up with Gogoro to install charging stations. CPC set up its first GoStation at its Yongqi Taishan (永錡泰山) gas station in New Taipei City in May 2015.   [FULL  STORY]
