Gogoro, a Taiwan-based ride-sharing company, has announced a partnership with Zomato and Kotak Mahindra Prime, a subsidiary of Kotak Mahindra Bank. The three-way partnership aligns with the government of India’s focus on providing broad affordable access to sustainable transportation.

ba“The urban transformation to electric transportation in India’s cities has begun and it is essential that we provide delivery partners with an accessible path to own and leverage the benefits that smart electric two-wheel vehicles and battery swapping offer. Gogoro, Zomato and Kotak are partnering to make this a reality," said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro. 

He added that the Gogoro Network battery swapping and vehicles provide a proven track record of safety and security that Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) like Kotak Prime can embrace and support.

“Electric two-wheelers powered by affordable, reliable, and accessible battery swapping solutions can positively impact delivery partner pay-outs, apart from reducing air pollution. That’s why we’re excited to partner with Gogoro and Kotak on this endeavour,” said Mohit Sardana, COO, Food Delivery at Zomato.

“We are pleased to partner with Gogoro and Zomato to further the adoption of electric two wheelers in the country. Sustainable transportation and easy loan access to the consumers is the key,” said Vyomesh Kapasi, MD & CEO of Kotak Mahindra Prime. 

Last mile delivery fleets require a sustainable solution that not only achieves the best alternative to internal combustion engine (ICE)vehicles but is well suited to the specific segment needs of the delivery industry. The Gogoro platform delivers the most sophisticated two-wheel battery swapping system that enables delivery operators to manage their fleets and deliveries more efficiently and sustainably.
