Jakarta (Rifyu.com) – Taiwanese automotive company Gogoro is further expanding its network of electric scooters and interchangeable batteries in South Korea later this year.
In South Korea, Gogoro is collaborating with Bikebank, a company dedicated to improving the country’s environmental conditions that focus on problems in two-wheeled vehicles, as reported by Ride Apart, Wednesday (24/5).
The two companies will create a new brand called Dotstation which will make Gogoro Smartscooters available to everyday customers in Korea in the third quarter of 2023.
Bikebank CEO Minkyu Kim said that together with Gogoro, they will accelerate the transformation of urban mobility in Korea. Bikebank created Dotstation to take the company forward into a new era of sustainable urban transportation that provides convenience to its customers.
“Dotstation is expanding its Gogoro battery replacement service to eight cities in Korea, and we anticipate launching more battery replacement locations this year with a variety of vehicles including Gogoro Smartscooters for consumers,” said Minkyu Kim.

The launch is planned to be in eight cities such as Seoul, Daegu, Sejong, Changwon, Incheon, Gyeongsan, Gyeonggi and Ulsan. Two Dotstation retail stores have been opened by Bikebank, offering support at both the consumer and delivery rider levels.
