Nature of Disruption: The battery prototype relies on ProLogium’s solid-state battery cell technology for energy storage, as well as Gogoro’s patented battery management system and physical case/connection. This new battery boasts a higher energy density for increased range, stability, and safety, as well as being reverse compatible with all Gogoro-powered vehicles. Users can swap batteries at GoStation Sites, which is a greener alternative to gas. There is no waiting time because the batteries would be fully charged and ready to use. In real-time, users can connect to the entire Gogoro Network. Each battery would also be connected to the Gogoro Network and monitored for safety, energy efficiency, and performance continuously. It allows users to make payments via the GOGORO App.

Outlook: Solid-state lithium ceramic batteries are expected to replace traditional lithium-ion batteries as the primary power source for electric vehicles and consumer devices. With its swappable battery, Gogoro aims to open a new age of electric mobility growth and adoption in cities. Solid-state batteries have a better energy density and can provide EV with a better range. Gogoro expects its solid-state batteries to boost current lithium batteries’ capacity by 140% or more, from 1.7 to 2.5 kWh. The company has a strategic partnership with Hero MotoCorp, activist and impact investment firm Engine No. 1 bringing its total funding to $285M. Under its own brand, HeroMotoCorp would launch electric two-wheelers based on Gogoro technology. With agreements with vehicle manufacturers like Hero MotoCorp and Chinese businesses Yadea and DCJ, Gogoro plans to scale its battery swapping infrastructure globally.
