John Sisemor, best practices research analyst, Frost & Sullivan, observed: "As a leading innovator in battery swapping and smart electric vehicles, Gogoro benefits from a first-mover advantage and leads Taiwan’s two-wheel electric market with 90% market share. More than 25% of all last mile deliveries in Taiwan use Gogoro battery swapping. GoShare takes advantage of all the benefits that Gogoro but enables non-scooter owners to use Gogoro Smartscooters and all of the benefits of battery swapping. And unlike most sharing services where companies need to relocate batteries and vehicles, GoShare riders swap the batteries themselves. Because of this, GoShare stands to reap the rewards of great and growing demand."
GoShare utilizes Gogoro’s technology, products, and services in close collaboration with various stakeholders and cross-industry partners to boost the green transportation solution and evolve alongside market needs and trends, giving it a competitive advantage. As a result, riders have access to GoShare scooters whenever they need them, including access to the Gogoro battery-swapping network which enables them to extend range as needed. GoShare is a disruptive leader in the Asia-Pacific mobility sharing solutions industry, continually evolving and creating barriers for both existing competitors and new market entrants. Consumers enjoy an extended usable range, power output boosts, and enhancements to overall performance. With more than 1.8 million riders, GoShare has hosted more than 26 million trips across seven cities in Taiwan since launching
"Gogoro GoShare combines the manufacturing expertise and battery swapping network of Gogoro with the ease of GoShare to incorporate customer-centric strategies, building strong brand equity and a sterling reputation, which elevates its leadership and status as a preferred partner in the market," added Sisemor.
