Weekender: The Gogoro Smartscooter

CES 2015: The Gogoro Smartscooter Is A Tesla On Two Wheels

This futuristic scooter could change densely populated cities forever

gogoroThe Gogoro Smartscooter is a powerful emission-free electric scooter built for people in the world’s most populated cities. It uses the same Panasonic Lithium Ion 18650 battery as the Tesla S, which means that the battery can be easily swapped out. For example, if a rider’s battery runs low, he or she could pull up to a battery station and exchange the low battery for a new one—meaning that fueling up the vehicle literally takes a few seconds.
