Gogoro Inc. and Uber Eats Taiwan have entered into a two-year partnership, valued at nearly US $30 mln (approximately Rs. 249.27 crore), aimed at promoting the adoption of electric scooters by Uber Eats delivery riders. This collaboration, building on an earlier announcement, will provide discounted pricing on Gogoro scooters and battery swapping services to incentivise the rapid transition to electric vehicles (EVs). Furthermore, delivery partners using Gogoro Smartscooters will receive additional incentives.
Uber Eats anticipates that by the end of 2025, 40 percent of all deliveries in Taiwan will be made using electric scooters, doubling the current rate of 20 percent.
Chai Lee, Uber Eats Taiwan General Manager, emphasised the importance of making the switch to electric scooters easy and affordable for delivery partners. The agreement aims to accelerate the adoption of Gogoro’s EV scooters and smart battery-swapping technology, contributing to cleaner air in Taiwanese cities and aligning with Uber Eats’ global goal of achieving emission-free deliveries by 2040.
In Taiwan, the Gogoro Network boasts a community of nearly 600,000 riders, supported by over 1.3 min smart batteries available at a network of 12,000 battery-swapping stations across more than 2,500 locations.
Horace Luke, Founder and CEO of Gogoro, highlighted the accelerated impact that enabling delivery riders to adopt smart, sustainable electric transportation can have on a city, considering the substantial distances covered during last-mile deliveries.
