Gojek, Gogoro to electrify two wheel transportation in Indonesia (Digital News Asia)

Gojek has announced a strategic partnership with Gogoro, a battery swapping and sustainable urban mobility company, to electrify two wheel transportation in Indonesia.

In a joint statement, the companies said the partnership brings together two of Asia’s most innovative and sustainability-focused technology companies that are committed to introducing a new era of urban transportation.

The partnership includes two key areas of cooperation: a GoTo Group investment in Gogoro’s PIPE, and cooperation between Gojek, Gogoro and Pertamina, on battery swapping and the Gogoro Smartscooter pilot scheme in Jakarta, the companies said.

“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,” said Horace Luke, founder and chief executive officer (CEO), Gogoro.

“Together with Gojek, and the Indonesian government’s support, we are on a path to making this happen,” he added.

Luke claimed Gogoro’s 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.

Meanwhile, Kevin Aluwi, Gojek’s co-Founder and CEO said the partnership between Gojek and Gogoro brings together two like-minded companies that are dedicated to making smart electric transportation the norm throughout Indonesia.

“Such an ambition can only be achieved if multiple stakeholders work together, so partnerships like this are essential if we are to meet our goals to re-imagine intra-city transport.

“By combining Gojek’s wide reach in Indonesia with Gogoro’s capabilities, we will be able to accelerate change and share the benefits of electric vehicles with more driver-partners and consumers,” he said.
