Battery Swap network
Unlike other electric scooters that charge via a wall outlet, the Gogoro is provided with a battery subscription and a network of GoStation battery swapping stations.

Next to the battery swap network Gogoro also offers a home charging station called a GoCharger that charges both batteries in 2.5 hours.

Gogoro offers 2 years of unlimited mileage warranty.
The scooter has a lockable storage compartment with USB charge ports.
The cover of the 2 Series can be replaced like a smart phone cover, allowing personalization of the scooter.
