Following its official introduction to the Philippine market months ago, the Ayala Group and Gogoro, a Taiwan-based e-mobility company, opened an experience store at Greenbelt 4. This store provides an opportunity for potential customers to immerse themselves in the diverse range of Gogoro Smartscooters.
“With the opening of our first Gogoro Experience Center (GEC), we are not just unveiling a store, we are opening the doors to the next chapter of mobility in the Philippines,” said Bernie Llamzon, president of Gogoro Philippines. “Motorists are invited to step in, explore, and be a part of this transformative journey toward a smarter and cleaner urban commute.”
At the GEC, visitors can easily schedule a test ride to discover the features of Gogoro Smartscooters.
Ernest Cu, CEO of Globe, emphasized the Group’s commitment to leading the way in sustainable and eco-friendly transportation solutions in the country.
This hub showcases various models of Gogoro Smartscooters, including the first-ever variant and one designed specifically for female riders.
A unique feature of Gogoro is its battery-swapping technology, allowing Gogoro owners to exchange batteries when they run low quickly. The companies are strategically planning the locations for battery stations, making them accessible to a wider population.
According to the Gogoro sales representatives at the opening, battery life can range from 80 km to 100 km depending on usage. To enhance security, the batteries are registered to users once removed from the station. These scooters can be operated, locked, and unlocked through an app. They also offer ample storage space for two batteries (in the larger variants) and a helmet.
The smaller model, Viva, is designed for short-distance travel and does not require a driver’s license, is not allowed on national roads or major thoroughfares.
