Taiwanese electronic scooter company Gogoro and Yamaha Motor Taiwan, the joint venture set up with Japanese Motorcycle brand Yamaha in 1966, recently announced that they will co-develop new electronic scooters, to be released in 2019 summer, the TechNews reported on September 11. Selling through Yamaha Motor Taiwan's sales channels, new electronic scooters will adopt Gogoro’s battery-swapping system and cloud-based network, and help Gogoro expand production capacity. Under the cooperative contract, to be signed within this year, Gogoro will develop and manufacture Yamaha-branded electronic scooters. Yamaha Motor Taiwan has been dedicated to the development of scooters in Taiwan and has developed its own electronic scooter, dubbed E-Vino, which has also been sold in Japan. Thus far, Gogoro has over 750 battery-swapping stations across Taiwan and expects to have more than 1,000 stations by early 2019. Upon launch, the stations have accumulated over 17 million battery swaps.
