Gogoro, HPCL collaborate to rollout battery-swapping stations at HPCL retail outlets pan India

Gogoro Inc., a prominent global technology company specialising in battery swapping ecosystems designed to facilitate sustainable urban mobility solutions, has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL), a significant player in the Indian oil industry. The collaboration will see implementation of two-wheeler battery swapping services at HPCL retail gas outlets throughout India over the course of the coming years.

“India is in the early stages of a massive electric transformation of its urban two-wheel transportation system, and it is increasingly evident that battery swapping is a critical component to broad adoption, so building out the swapping infrastructure is crucial. Today, we are announcing a partnership with HPCL, one of India’s leading oil companies, to rollout thousands of Gogoro battery swapping stations across its retail outlets throughout the country in the coming years,” said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro.

“There is nowhere on earth that needs smart electric transportation more than India, and Gogoro is joining together with the Indian business community and national and local governments to deploy a battery swapping and electric vehicle ecosystem that is open, accessible and scalable,” he further added.

Amit Garg, Director of Marketing at HPCL, speaking on the collaboration said, “HPCL and Gogoro are partnering to develop a broad battery swapping infrastructure for two-wheel vehicles that will both grow and sustain a leading electric vehicle ecosystem in India that is safe, clean and readily available across India’s cities. Gogoro has demonstrated its global leadership in battery swapping and electric two-wheel innovation and with nearly 500 million battery swaps to date has developed a platform we can embrace and emulate.”
