Gogoro Inc., a Taiwan-based technology player in battery-swapping ecosystems, has partnered global online food ordering and delivery platform Uber Eats for Green Delivery Program worth nearly $30 million.

Gogoro said in a statement on Tuesday that the program will make it easier and more affordable for Uber Eats delivery partners to switch to electric scooters.

The two-year partnership is being funded by both companies.

Delivery partners will receive discounts on new Gogoro Smartscooters and battery swapping programs, and be given incentives for deliveries on Gogoro Smartscooters.

Through the program, Uber Eats expects electric vehicle (EV) deliveries in Taiwan to double from nearly 20 percent to 40 percent of all trips by the end of 2025.

“One of the greatest challenges of our time is transforming urban transportation to cleaner sustainable energy,” said Horace Luke, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Gogoro.

Through this partnership in Taiwan, he said Gogoro and Uber are reducing the barriers for Uber Eats riders to embrace and adopt smart mobility in all of their deliveries.

“On average, last mile delivery riders ride more than six-times the distance as consumer riders, so enabling these delivery riders to adopt smart sustainable electric transportation can have an accelerated impact on a city,” he added.

Chai Lee, Uber Eats Taiwan General Manager said that making it easy and affordable for delivery partners to switch to electric scooters is a top priority for Uber Eats in Taiwan.

“We have already seen how Uber Eats delivery partners have embraced Gogoro’s EV scooters and smart battery-swapping technology,

“Today’s agreement stands to supercharge this, bringing cleaner air to cities across Taiwan and helping us toward our goal of eliminating emissions on all global deliveries by 2040,” she added.

According to the statement, the program represents a deepening of Gogoro’s and Uber Eats’ shared commitment to a greener future for Taiwan.

Earlier this year, both companies announced discounted pricing that was widely and quickly adopted by delivery partners.

It is noted that Gogoro’s research indicates that the adoption of two-wheel EVs is already making a meaningful difference.

Two and three wheelers are widely used for daily commutes and deliveries in most megacities, especially in Asia and Africa.

The adoption of two- and three-wheel electric vehicles is already making meaningful progress as the oil displacement from two- and three-wheel EVs is approximately five times that of four-wheel passenger EVs.

Due to a combination of policy support, growing customer acceptance, improvement in battery technology and new compelling models from vehicle makers, Gogoro expects the adoption of two- and three-wheel EVs will continue to accelerate.
