Gogoro, a Taiwanese smart electric scooter company, in collaboration with Cycle and Carriage Singapore (C&C), has recently partnered with food delivery platform Foodpanda India to launch a battery-swapping pilot program in Singapore. The initiative is aimed at supporting electric two-wheel vehicles for last-mile deliveries, which will be facilitated through Gogoro’s six-second Swap and Go battery-swapping service, providing a new and more efficient approach to electric refuelling for two-wheel delivery fleets.
This partnership comes in the wake of Singapore Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) decision to award Gogoro and C&C with a battery-swapping sandbox pilot for electric two-wheel vehicles last year. The inclusion of Foodpanda as a partner will facilitate the trial of Gogoro’s Smartscooters and battery-swapping platform, further expanding their scope in last-mile delivery services. The insights gathered from this pilot program will be instrumental in guiding future actions to promote the adoption of sustainable mobility solutions as Singapore moves towards a cleaner and more sustainable energy transportation system.
According to YourStory, this move will further support Singapore’s efforts to create a cleaner and greener transport sector. The city-state is already at the forefront of promoting sustainable transport solutions, with several initiatives aimed at reducing its carbon footprint, such as the development of electric vehicles and infrastructure to support clean energy. As Singapore seeks to adopt more sustainable mobility solutions, Gogoro’s battery-swapping technology has the potential to revolutionize the way last-mile delivery services are conducted, providing a more sustainable and efficient way to power electric two-wheel vehicles.
Overall, Gogoro and its partners’ efforts in Singapore demonstrate a commitment to promoting sustainable mobility solutions that are not only eco-friendly but also more efficient and cost-effective for businesses. This pilot program’s success will undoubtedly pave the way for the wider adoption of electric two-wheel vehicles in the delivery sector, reducing carbon emissions and supporting Singapore’s goal of achieving a cleaner and more sustainable energy transportation system.
