Gogoro, a leading player in the swappable battery market for light electric vehicles, has unveiled its latest offering, the Gogoro CrossOver Smartscooter. Dubbed a ‘two-wheel SUV,’ this innovative scooter is built on a new platform and leverages Gogoro’s extensive network of over one million exchangeable batteries. The CrossOver is designed with an emphasis on durability, practicality, and customization, featuring task-specific design elements and a robust frame with improved ground clearance compared to previous Gogoro models.
Customizable Design and Versatile Mounting Points
The Gogoro CrossOver stands out with its extensive customization options, allowing riders to adapt the scooter to their specific needs. It incorporates an adjustable mounting point system with 26 secure points, providing ample storage options and space for passengers. Four cargo carrying areas, including a platform-style headlight, footrest, seat, and rear cargo space, enhance its practicality. The rear seat can be flipped up or removed to create additional storage space. Gogoro also offers new accessories like side faceplate racks and off-road front racks for added utility.
Powerful Performance and Seamless Riding
The CrossOver is equipped with a centrally positioned G2.2 aluminum alloy water-cooled permanent magnet synchronous motor, delivering a maximum power output of approximately 10hp. It utilizes Gogoro’s FLO DRIVE belt drive system, ensuring a smooth and low-maintenance riding experience. While the scooter’s top speed has not been officially disclosed, similar Gogoro models are typically electronically restricted to a maximum speed of 95km/h. Braking is managed by a Synchronized Braking System (SBS) with front and rear hydraulic disc brakes.
Smart Features and Battery Swapping
The CrossOver comes with Gogoro’s new 6.8 iQ System, which includes Bluetooth controls, LTE smart remote networking services, and real-time online vehicle condition monitoring. It features a Traction Control System (TCS) and offers an optional cruise control mode for added convenience. Riders can effortlessly swap their batteries at numerous stations throughout Taiwan, with the entire process taking just six seconds.
Customization and Availability
Initially, the Gogoro CrossOver will be available in Taiwan, offering color choices such as Desert White and Night Storm Grey. The CrossOver S trim will also include Myst Red and Summit Yellow. Gogoro has introduced the Gogoro Bespoke Club for Smartscooter customization services, enabling CrossOver buyers to design their own personalized scooter with over 100 color combinations. While global launch plans for the CrossOver have not been officially announced, it represents an exciting addition to Gogoro’s lineup for riders looking for practical and customizable electric mobility solutions.
