CAR REVIEWS Gogoro SmartScooter Hands-On: Riding The Tesla Of Electric Bikes
What’s different about the Gogoro scooter for residents of Taipei? It’s a battery you swap for a charged one at a station, instead of a long wait to charge.
Two batteries on board give up to 100km range, and swapping out for fresh ones takes about 6 seconds. Gogoro’s whole mission is to improve two-wheeled transport for the world’s megacities. A megacity is defined as a metropolis where over 10 million people live. In 1990, there were 10 megacities in the world. Right now, there are 37 megacities in the world, including Beijing, Jakarta, New York, Los Angeles, Osaka and Manila.by
