Jakarta, Nov 4: Gojek has announced a strategic partnership to electrify two wheel transportation in Indonesia with Gogoro.
The partnership between Gojek (a GoTo Group company) and Gogoro would be investing in Gogoro’s PIPE, and secondly, a cooperation between Gojek, Gogoro and Pertamina, on a battery swapping and Gogoro Smartscooter pilot scheme in Jakarta.
“One of the greatest challenges of our time, in Indonesia and around the world, is transforming our urban transportation into a new generation of smart and sustainable electric two-wheel vehicles that are accessible and people can embrace,” Gogoro founder and CEO Horace Luke said.
“Together with Gojek, and the Indonesian government’s support, we are on a path to making this happen.”
“Gogoro battery swapping is a new generation of electric fueling that provides an open platform for two-wheel vehicle makers to introduce new electric vehicles that enable fast, safe and easy to use refueling.”
Based in Jakarta, the Gojek and Gogoro pilot project would consists of 250 Gogoro Smartscooters and four GoStation battery swapping stations that will be located at Pertamina gas stations.
Pertamina is the Indonesian state-owned oil and natural gas corporation.
Together, both companies plan to scale up the pilot to 5,000 scooters and more battery swap stations in the future.
Gogoro has established itself as a global innovation leader in compact electric propulsion, smart battery design, battery swapping, and advanced cloud services that utilise artificial intelligence to manage battery availability and safety.
At the heart of Gogoro’s ecosystem is the Gogoro Network, a hyper-efficient battery swapping platform that was recognised by Guidehouse Insights as the leading battery swapping company for lightweight urban vehicles in the world.
With more than 400,000 riders and 2,100 battery swapping stations, Gogoro Network is hosting 270,000 daily battery swaps with more than 250 million total battery swaps to date.
In addition to the Gogoro Network, in 2015 Gogoro also unveiled its award-winning Gogoro Smartscooter as the world’s first smart electric two-wheel vehicle.
In 2019, it established the Powered by Gogoro Network Program (PBGN) that provides Gogoro’s vehicle maker partners access to Gogoro innovations including its intelligent drivetrains and controllers, components and smart systems, so they can develop and roll-out unique electric vehicles that integrate Gogoro Network battery swapping.
The Gojek x Gogoro pilot is also in line with Gojek’s sustainability goals and ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.
In April this year, Gojek released its first Sustainability Report, where it outlined its plans to achieve Zero Emissions by 2030, including transitioning its fleet to 100 per cent electric vehicles.
As part of this, Gojek is actively exploring ways to develop a comprehensive electric vehicle ecosystem, by leveraging technology to address the barriers to adoption for driver-partners and ensure an optimal consumer experience.
