这可能需要很多臭气造成的摩尔瓦。

One of the problems with electric vehicles (and with cars in general) is that many people do not own parking spaces, so they don't have an easy way to charge their cars. It's one reason I have admired the Gogoro model so much; you don't charge the batteries, you exchange them, no private charging point needed. Derek called the SmartScooter "the Tesla of scooters, combining a slick streamlined aluminum monocoque chassis and a quick electric drive system (top speed 60 mph) with state-of-the-art sensor and mobile technology."

Since then it has caught on around the world, with over 200,000 sold and more than 125,000 battery swaps per day. The system apparently works.

NowGogoro has introducedwhat might be called the Tesla Model 3 of scooters; the VIVA is smaller, lighter, easier to handle, and cheaper, too. Gas-powered scooters are very popular in many countries, and they are very dirty. Horace Luke, founder of Gogoro, says, “We are always looking for opportunities to create solutions that enable broader access to sustainable urban transportation and this smaller lightweight category of polluting 50-100cc gas scooters was a natural segment to introduce a Gogoro Smartscooter.”

Viva使用单个电池,在电池递送之间的范围内高达85公里。“通过其同步制动系统,Viva在最需要的情况下提供制动控制,并且随着Gogoro的IQ系统的集成,不断更新自己以提供理想的骑行。”

没有车库的人通常必须离开他们的踏板车外,但Gogoro显然增加了一些复杂的工具来减少盗窃:

The Gogoro iQ Smart Keycard with NFC connectivity provides an intuitive way to easily unlock and start VIVA with a single touch. With advanced facial recognition, fingerprint sensors and passcode security from your smartphone, the VIVA can stay secure and is nearly impossible to steal.

对这个概念有很多东西。它的维护低,有21升(1281立方英寸)的杂货,由柔性塑料制成。Luke tells TechCrunch“viva旨在每天不超过5公里的人口,他们不想担心划痕,所有权的成本,不得不把它带到商店维修或停车。”它将零售约1,800美元,比大量的电子自行车便宜。它在台湾的家庭基地非常成功:

与许多其他亚洲城市一样,摩托车在台湾流行,作为许多司机的主要车辆,运送多名乘客和交付。卢克表示,Gogoro的滑板车现在占该国电动车市场份额的95%,占台湾销售的所有新车的约17%,包括天然气。

Seen in Berlin: Gogoro scooter with swappable battery/ Lloyd Alter/cc by 2.0

Gogoro Scooter.s are also great for ride-sharing because the battery swap is so fast and easy; I saw them all over Berlin a few years ago. While the swappable battery concept failed in cars, it makes a lot of sense with these smaller, lighter vehicles. The company is getting ready to expand into other international markets, including in North America.According to Electrek,

Gogoro is still determining the type of sales model it will use internationally. It could be similar to the model currently used in Taiwan, where riders buy the scooter but not the batteries, and instead pay a monthly subscription of between US $10-$30 for battery swap access. Or Gogoro might begin by simply selling the scooters and batteries outright, with riders charging at home.

携带电池的公寓肯定更容易,而不是整台自行车。

A few years ago when we wondered Will a lack of places to charge electric cars be a problem? I suggested that Gogoro might well offer a solution for people without parking, taking up less space and not needing a changing point. These days, with all the battles everywhere about street parking, it makes even more sense.
