Gates, Gogoro inks strategic partnership to fast-track sustainable urban transportation
Gates and Gogoro have announced that they have entered into an exclusive partnership to accelerate sustainable urban transportation.
"The partnership with Gogoro brings together two like-minded, innovative companies focused on accelerating sustainable urban transportation," said Ivo Jurek, CEO, Gates.
"Gogoro's battery swapping platform and robust vehicle ecosystem are unmatched, and this partnership will allow both of us to continue the rapid expansion of electric micromobility."
As part of the renewed partnership, Gates and Gogoro co-developed FLO DRIVE™, a vehicle drivetrain system based on Gates Carbon Drive that will be exclusively available to Powered by Gogoro Network (PBGN) vehicle makers through the Gogoro Development Kit (GDK). The GDK provides Gogoro's vehicle partners with the most powerful, connected, and efficient electric two-wheel power system on the market today.
"Gogoro and Gates have worked together for years, and our new exclusive partnership strengthens our collaboration and joint commitment to accelerating the urban mobility shift to electric. The durability and low maintenance of the co-developed FLO DRIVE system mean these vehicles are more sustainable because they last longer, are more efficient, quieter, and easier to own," said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO, Gogoro.
"Our partnership with Gates is focused on innovation, a joint commitment to sustainability, and a positive view for how electrification of our cities will create a positive future. This is the decade of electric mobility, and 2022 is the year smart mobility comes to the masses."
