The Taiwanese electric scooter company Gogoro has become an industry leader for both its electric scooters and its fast-swapping batteries. The company currently has multiple electric scooter models positioned for different markets. Today it unveiled its latest generation scooter, the Gogoro 3.
The new Gogoro 3 electric scooter features a total redesign and will leverage the company’s new higher capacity batteries to reach 170 km (105 mi) of range. Those batteries use 2170-format cells supplied by Panasonic – Tesla’s own battery partner.

Without even trying out (not available in US yet) a Gogoro scooter I love the idea. It is a 2-wheeled vehicle that runs on two Lithium battery packs which contain the same Panasonic 18650 batteries that line the bottom of the Tesla Model S and X. While a Model S contains about 7,000 of these to hit about 70-90kWh, the Gogoro’s battery packs are only 1.3kWh each (so around 100+batteries/ea) and can be exchanged in a charging bay. The 2.6kWh, according to Gogoro’s specs will take the good looking scooter about 60 miles at 60mph (0-31 in 4.2secs). While solid specs, that’s not at all what makes Gogoro a gamechanger…
