Gogoro partners with 917Ventures and Ayala Corporation to enter the Philippines.

Gogoro, 917Ventures, and Ayala Corporation will launch a two-wheel battery-swapping pilot in Manila, Philippines, in Q1 2023.

Gogoro has announced its partnership with Globe’s 917Ventures and Ayala Corporation to launch its battery-swapping network and smartscooters in the Philippines. The companies will launch a two-wheel battery-swapping pilot in Manila using Gogoro’s industry-leading battery swapping and Smartscooters.

The Smartscooters are powered by Gogoro’s Swap & Go battery swapping platform that uses distributed battery-swapping stations to enable convenient swapping of used batteries for new ones that deliver riders full power in just seconds. The launch is expected to be in Q1 2023.

Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro, said: Gogoro is honored to have the support of the Philippine’s Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to kick start this new smart mobility movement in Manila that utilizes Gogoro’s intelligent battery swapping, a new generation of EV refueling. Through our collaboration with Globe, 917Ventures, and Ayala Corporation, we plan to unlock incredible environmental and sustainability benefits and introduce new smart mobility efficiencies for businesses by improving how they manage their fleets and deliveries.

Vince Yamat, Managing Director of 917Ventures, said: We are committed to helping solve the climate crisis by introducing Gogoro to logistics businesses, helping them in their sustainability efforts. In addition, the Swap & Go technology will enable riders to be fully charged in just seconds and therefore eliminate the need for parking spots. Hopefully, this technology will encourage more Filipinos to switch to EVs.
