Gogoro launches electric scooter battery swap service in Israel


Gogoro, a global technology leader in battery swapping ecosystems, today announced the launch of its battery swap for Electric Scooters and Smartscooters in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area of Israel.

In partnership with market leaders Metro Motor and Paz Group, the companies hope to launch in other cities in Israel in the future.

“I welcome the arrival of Gogoro electric scooters to Israel as they serve several significant agendas,” said Meital Lehavi, Deputy Mayor of Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality, managing the Transport, Road Safety and LGBT Community departments.

“First, two-wheeled vehicles are traffic jam-busters in an era of road congestion. Second, this is a breakthrough that heralds the transition to smart and green transport through cooperation that will allow for battery exchange at gas stations, transforming them into places for alternative energy supply”, he added.

Metro Motor is one of the leading distributors of two-wheeled vehicles in Israel and Paz Group is a leading energy, gas and retail group in Israel. The companies are launching with 10 battery change locations and anticipate deploying to 35 battery change stations by the end of 2022 and over 150 stations within 4 years.

“Gogoro is excited to launch its battery swap in Tel Aviv. We are focused on driving the mass market shift to smart electric mobility and battery swapping is a clear path to solving a city’s mobility and energy demands in a safe, sustainable and scalable way. As one of the most innovative cities in the world, the people of Tel Aviv can now embrace a new era in smart mobility innovation using Gogoro Smartscooters and battery replacement,” said Horace Luke, Founder, President and CEO of Gogoro.

“Metro Motor and Paz Group are two industry leaders in Israel and together we are introducing a new experience of smart, sustainable and accessible urban mobility for all. Now you can buy the high-performance Gogoro S2 ABS or the versatile Gogoro 2 Plus at Metro retail stores in the city”, concluded the executive.
