Gogoro 2 and 2 Plus Electric Scooter
Gogoro Electric, the master of swappable batteries has finally forayed into the Indian market, with the successful homologation of its Gogoro 2 and 2 Plus electric scooters series.
The vehicles have been certified and homologated by the Central Institute of Road institute suggesting that the e-scooters offer a range of up to 85km.
The two models will be made available in India after being imported as CPUs (Completely build units), with the manufacturing and assembly carried out at the company’s plant in Taiwan.
- Both Gogoro 2 and 2 Plus electric scooters have a top speed of 87 kmph.
- The continuous power output is 7.2 kW for Gogoro 2 and 6.4 kW for Gogoro 2 Plus.
- The difference in power output results in different claimed ranges – 85km on the 2 and 97km on the 2 Plus.
- Both e-scooters have a long wheelbase of 1295mm, which is longer than the TVS Jupiter 125, one of the longest wheelbases of 1275mm in its segment.
- Both models have a gross vehicle weight of 273kg each.
The basic difference between the two Gogoro 2 and 2 plus Series is that the latter variant offers a higher range.
Now you’ll ask that the original range of Gogoro vehicles is 170km but in India, they are coming with only 85km and 94km range.
Well, the logic behind this lesser range is the company has got just one certification done for its battery in India. The original vehicle comes with two swappable batteries. This means that the vehicle will come in different designs.
Talking about the peak power, both vehicles have two variants of 6.4kW and 7.2kW.
