Cycle & Carriage has teamed up with electric mobility solutions provider Gogoro and food delivery platform Foodpanda in a battery swapping pilot for electric bikes


Multi-brand car dealership Cycle & Carriage, together with electric mobility solutions provider Gogoro and food delivery platform Foodpanda, have announced a new partnership which will see the three companies collaborate on a battery swapping pilot programme for electric two-wheeler vehicles in Singapore.

The pilot will involve C&C leasing Gogoro 2 Series Smartscooters to Foodpanda riders, with the scooters having a range of 100km and a top speed of 90km/h, and is compatible with Gogoro’s six-second Swap & Go battery swapping network. The cost of the leasing package will include use of the battery swapping service, as well as general servicing and maintenance costs of the bikes. C&C adds however that it is looking into selling the electric scooters to the general public once the pilot programme is completed.

At the moment, the battery swapping stations are located at C&C’s Service Centres at Alexandra and Ubi, but there are apparently plans to add on more swapping stations and expand the network further down the line in partnership with Gogoro. The servicing and maintenance of the bikes will be conducted at C&C’s Alexandra Service Centre.

Gogoro has accumulated plenty of expertise in establishing its electric bike battery swapping network in its home country of Taiwan, and Horace Luke, founder and CEO of Gogoro, noted that “more than 26 percent of all daily quick deliveries in Taiwan (are) enabled by Gogoro battery swapping.” 

He adds that, “Cities like Singapore are at an inflection point of sustainability and are beginning to embrace sustainable transportation in new impactful ways. On average, last mile delivery riders ride more than six-times the distance as consumer riders, so enabling these delivery riders to adopt smart sustainable electric transportation can have an accelerated impact on a city.”
