Gogoro, a technology leader transforming how innovation is accelerating the shift to sustainable urban mobility, announced a partnership with Tai Ling Industry to make Powered By Gogoro Network (PBGN) scooters as part of Tai Ling’s new electric scooter brand, e-Ready. Established to increase the adoption of sustainable urban transportation, the PBGN program will enable Tai Ling to design smart electric vehicles that integrate with the Gogoro Network, Gogoro’s industry-leading battery swapping platform.
“We are excited to be partnering with Tai Ling, the exclusive long time commercialization partner of Suzuki for motorcycles and scooters in Taiwan, to propel their electric vehicle strategies forward. The world is experiencing unprecedented momentum for electric transportation, especially in Taiwan, and people are demanding smart electrical vehicle choices and Gogoro is enabling the ecosystem to support it,” said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO, Gogoro Inc. “Gogoro was created to accelerate the shift to electric transportation in cities, and created the Powered By Gogoro Network program to provide vehicle manufacturers like Tai Ling with key vehicle components and intellectual property combined with a robust battery swapping infrastructure for refueling.”
With strong consumer adoption of Gogoro Network battery swapping, ‘Powered by Gogoro Network’ provides consumers with a variety of choices in scooter brands, designs, features and price and extends Gogoro’s industry leadership in swappable and sustainable refueling. ‘Powered by Gogoro Network’ provides vehicle makers with access to Gogoro’s innovations and intellectual property including its intelligent drivetrains and controllers, components and smart systems, so each manufacturer can develop and roll-out unique electric vehicles that integrate Gogoro Network battery swapping.
“Tai Ling has been committed to providing consumers with quality products and great user experiences. In response to the unstoppable trend of electric transportation, Tai Ling will invest in our electric vehicle business, and Gogoro, who has been leading the category, is the company we are partnering with,” said Charles Huang, chairman, Tai Ling. “We will launch our first Powered by Gogoro Network scooter under the ‘e-Ready’ brand, highlighting that electric transportation is ready for customers and we will drive our brand around ‘Smart, Green Energy and Technology.'”
