Battery Swap network
Unlike other electric scooters that charge via a wall outlet, the Gogoro is provided with a battery subscription and a network of GoStation battery swapping stations. When the charge on the scooter runs low, you stop by a station and swap the batteries with fresh ones. Gogoro charges a monthly subscription fee for this service.
Next to the battery swap network Gogoro also offers a home charging station called a GoCharger that charges both batteries in 2.5 hours.
The range of the batteries is 125 km.
The Gogoro connects to a smart phone app that allows for an incredible amount of customization. Riders can use the Gogoro app with their iPhone or Android to change the colors of the lights, monitor their battery usage, find a battery swap station, call for help if they crash, or locate where they parked.
Gogoro offers 2 years of unlimited mileage warranty.
