In a significant stride towards greener and more sustainable transportation solutions, Gogoro Inc., a Taiwanese electric scooter and battery-swapping tech firm, has announced a groundbreaking partnership with Swiggy, India's leading food delivery platform. This collaboration aims to revolutionize last-mile delivery services by promoting electric mobility. Gogoro will play a pivotal role by providing its state-of-the-art electric scooters and innovative battery-swapping services to Swiggy's riders across India.


According to Horace Luke, the visionary founder and CEO of Gogoro, this partnership holds immense importance for India's hyperlocal fleets and the government's electric transformation goals. The collaboration with Swiggy, a key player in the industry, will facilitate access to Gogoro Smart scooters and cutting-edge battery swapping technology. This move is expected to be a pivotal step in India's urban fleets' transition to electric vehicles, marking a significant leap towards sustainability and efficiency.


Swiggy has been a frontrunner in embracing electric vehicles for last-mile delivery services. In 2021, the company had committed to covering a remarkable 8 lakh kilometers daily through EV deliveries. This commitment aligns perfectly with its goal of providing environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions to its delivery fleet. The partnership with Gogoro signifies another essential stride in this direction. Mihir Shah, Head of Operations at Swiggy, emphasized that Gogoro's battery swapping technology represents a new era of electric refueling, promising increased efficiency and reduced rider interruptions.

The adoption of electric vehicles not only aligns with sustainability goals but also has tangible benefits for delivery partners. With up to 40% savings on running costs, electric vehicles can significantly impact earnings. Swiggy's partnership with Gogoro solidifies its commitment to creating a greener and more cost-effective fleet. This union envisions a future where deliveries are efficient, emissions are zero, and pollution from vehicles is minimized, thereby contributing to a healthier environment for all.


Gogoro's foray into India is underscored by a substantial investment of Rs 12,300 crore in Maharashtra. The company's dedication to its battery swapping technology is also evident through the establishment of EV battery-swapping stations in the region. These stations offer impressive capabilities, with the ability to perform over 200 battery swaps daily and even function self-sustainably during blackouts for up to 64 hours. The technology allows for a swift battery swap in just six seconds, enhancing the convenience and practicality of electric scooters.


Powered by robust software, Gogoro's battery-swapping stations are a testament to the company's commitment to innovation and efficiency. The software oversees the hardware and monitors battery performance, even intervening if necessary. As Horace Luke reiterated, the partnership between Gogoro and Swiggy echoes their shared commitment to spearheading India's electric transformation in collaboration with both national and city governments.
