Gogoro partner with Giant Hero Motocorp to introduce electric scooter battery tech to India
Gogoro network is expanding its wings to India by partnering with giant two-wheeler Hero MotorCorp. According to sources, Hero will build an electric scooter that will come with features like swappable & rechargeable batteries based around GoGoro tech.
Well, this will be the right time to expand their branches out of their home country Taiwan and launch in India. Especially when India is addressing pollution problems & electric vehicles could help eat away at some of India’s pollution. It’s a strategic partnership between Gogoro India and Moto Corp as it provides a turnkey solution by producing energy-efficient Vehicles.
Scopes & Challenges
Building out charging infrastructure is a daunting task, especially when India is dealing with the COVID situation. But to make a massive change we need a massive adoption. And Taiwan is famous for its well-served pilot market to develop technology and show the world it’s possible. Seeing the price of fuel Indian government wants to put electric vehicles on the road to manage the high cost of fuel.
India is a much larger market in terms of geography and population. 2ndy in countries like India 74%of the total population used 2wheeler in terms of the vehicle to fleet across India. And hence India has a favorable market for Gogoro bikes to launch in India.
Gogoro partnering with Hero Motocorp can be a striking deal for both ventures. As Hero is a solid unit solder in terms of motorbike & scooter & by seeing its extensive presence in fossil fuel vehicles, we can expect a favourable market in electric vehicles too.
No doubt it would be a challenging endeavor for the hero, as they don’t have the infrastructure for battery swapping. It would take solid time to transform & make the nation get used to Electric bikes. Well, it would be a long and steady project that helps to enable the technology in 2 wheelers to win and go faster. Chief executive officer Horace Luke said at a press conference that they will be trying every possible way to deploy electric bikes rapidly in India.
Let’s explore its feature and you will know why Gogoro India in partnership with 2wheeler giant Hero MotorCorp
Feature of Gogoro 2 plus Bike

Its speed can also be restricted officially at 45km/h. It is equipped with regenerative braking that will allow simultaneous braking force to the front-rear wheels. By automatically balancing the stopping force and helping it to reduce slips during panic stops. The regenerative braking will also help to return power to batteries.
