Gogoro Inc. (Nasdaq: GGR), a worldwide pioneer in battery-swapping ecosystems fostering eco-friendly urban mobility, has unveiled a strategic collaboration with Swiggy, India’s premier on-demand convenience delivery platform.
“Accelerating the electric transformation of India’s hyperlocal fleets is a top priority for Gogoro and India’s national and city governments. Partnering with Swiggy, a leading player in the industry, to provide access to Gogoro Smartscooters and battery swapping is essential in successfully transforming India’s urban fleets to electric,” said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro. “Together, Swiggy and Gogoro will provide a seamless path for riders to adopt sustainable electric transportation and improve their business efficiency.”
“This partnership with Gogoro is another key step in our commitment to creating greener and cost-effective solutions for our delivery fleet,” said Mihir Shah, Head of Operations at Swiggy. “We believe in providing our delivery partners with access to the latest innovations in sustainable transportation that reduce rider interruptions, improve earnings and make deliveries more efficient. Gogoro’s battery swapping technology represents a new generation of electric refueling that has proven successful on a mass scale for last-mile delivery, and we look forward to working with them to transform hyperlocal deliveries to be more sustainable and efficient in India.”
In 2021, Swiggy made a resolute pledge to encompass a daily distance of 800,000 kilometers through electric vehicle (EV) deliveries. A trailblazer in sustainable transportation, the company has made remarkable headway in incorporating EVs for last-mile delivery. This achievement has been facilitated by strategic alliances with prominent industry frontrunners, including Reliance BP Mobility Limited and Hero Lectro. These collaborations have empowered delivery partners to reap savings of up to 40% on vehicle operating expenses, notably enhancing their earnings.
Meeting the unique demands of the delivery sector, sustainable solutions for last-mile delivery fleets must surpass conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Gogoro’s cutting-edge platform introduces an advanced two-wheel battery swapping system, tailored precisely to the requirements of the delivery industry. This system empowers delivery operators to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of their fleets and delivery operations.
