Gogoro Battery Swapping Pilots in the Philippines

Gogoro is continuing its expansion across Asia by partnering with Globe’s 917Ventures and Ayala Corporation to offer its battery-swapping system in the Philippines.

Initially, the companies intend to focus on introducing a more sustainable alternative to fossil fuel-powered vehicles for last mile deliveries.

This partnership follows a similar initiative to accelerate the electrification of logistics fleets in India, as well prior launches in countries such as China and Singapore.

Horace Luke, Founder and CEO of Gogoro, said:

“Gogoro is honoured 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 utilises Gogoro’s intelligent battery swapping, a new generation of EV refuelling. 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.”

The companies will launch a battery-swapping pilot in Manila in early 2023 using scooters powered by Gogoro’s Swap & Go battery swapping platform.

This system installs a network of battery-swapping stations to enable used batteries to be conveniently exchanged for charged ones.

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 EV.”
