Mobility startup Gogoro has been making waves in Taiwan for a few years now with its smart electric scooters. It is now returning to its roots with a new scooter-sharing system for the city of Taoyuan, which will allow residents to hop aboard for a ride at the click of a button.
Taiwanese firm Gogoro is set to bring its electric two-wheelers to European streets, today announcing it will implement its battery-swapping Smartscooter network in Amsterdam in 2016 following a successful launch in Taipei earlier this year.
Startup Gogoro drew plenty of attention when it unveiled its battery-swapping Smartscooter network earlier this year, but when and were these were likely to be deployed wasn't entirely clear. The company has now announced a pilot program in Taiwan, ahead of a launch this coming summer.
