[雅加達和台北，2021 年 11 月 2 日] Gogoro 與 GoTo 今 (2) 日宣布，雙方已簽署策略合作夥伴備忘錄，將攜手在印尼探索與發展基於 Gogoro 智慧移動解決方案的各項交通、移動永續服務。此項合作結合亞洲最具創新性和永續發展的兩家科技公司，共同推動都會轉型、邁向移動服務新時代。GoTo 是印尼最大的科技集團，其融入日常生活的 "go-to" 生態系統，包括最大的移動服務平台 (Gojek)、印尼最大的電子商務平台 (Tokopedia) 和領先的電子支付和金融服務 GoTo Financial。2021 年 9 月，GoTo 亦參與了 Gogoro 與 Poema Global Holdings Corp. 合併的私募增資 (PIPE, Private Investment in Public Equity)，該交易預計將在 2022 年初完成，GoTo 屆時將成為 Gogoro 的國際投資人之一。
Gogoro 與 GoTo 的共同目標是，依據 Gogoro 目前已佈建全球最大與最聰明的電池交換平台，在印尼建構出完整的開放式電能補充生態系，進一步協助印尼的各個區域發展成為智慧移動的典範城市。雙方未來將在印尼共同發展，提供各項永續移動解決方案。包括在電動車輛動力總成、車輛設計、雲端服務等多個面向，設計並建構出適合印尼且創新的產品組合。
此合作的第一個項目是 Gogoro 與 GoTo 集團旗下的 Gojek，從印尼首都雅加達開始推動先期試點計畫，內容包括投放 250 輛 Gogoro 智慧電動機車和設置 4 個位於 Pertamina（印尼國家石油和天然氣公司）現有加油站內的 GoStation 電池交換站。未來還會進一步擴大這個計畫的規模，包含可能投放 5,000 輛智慧電動機車，以及在 Pertamina 旗下的加油站點佈建更多的電池交換站。
「印尼和世界各地當前所面臨的最大挑戰之一，就是將城市交通轉變為智慧且永續的電動二輪車輛，並廣為被民眾接受與使用。在印尼政府的支持下，Gogoro 與 GoTo 正邁向實踐此目標的道路上。」Gogoro 創辦人暨執行長陸學森表示：「Gogoro 的電池交換技術是新一代的電動車輛能源補充方式，為二輪製造商提供了一個開放平台，能夠開發推出快速、安全且易於補充能源的電動車輛。」
「GoTo 和 Gogoro 有著共同的理念，積極使智慧電動交通成為整個印尼未來發展的規範。」 Gojek 聯合創辦人兼執行長 Kevin Aluwi 表示：「只有與志同道合的夥伴共同努力，才能實現這樣的雄心壯志，因此，如果我們想要重新構思城市內的交通，這樣的夥伴關係是不可或缺的。透過 GoTo 在印尼的廣大影響力與 Gogoro 的創新能力互相結合，能夠加速變革，與更多的夥伴以及消費者分享電動車輛的好處。這也代表著 Gojek 朝 2030 年車隊完全電動化和實現零排放的未來目標邁出了重要一步。」
Gogoro 運用創新技術，將小型電力驅動、智慧電池設計、電池交換系統和先進雲端服務結合，運用人工智慧來管理電池的可用性和安全性，已成為創造以及營運全球最大規模智慧電池交換平台的科技公司與領導者。Gogoro 生態系統的核心是 Gogoro Network，一個高效能電池交換平台。Gogoro Network 被 Guidehouse Insights 評選為全球領先的輕型電動車電池交換品牌，目前擁有超過 42 萬名用戶和 10,666 個電池交換站機櫃。迄今為止，Gogoro Network 每天有 30 萬顆的電池交換，電池交換總量超過 2.2 億次。
Gogoro 與 Gojek 的先期試點計畫也符合 Gojek 永續發展目標和正在進行的減少其碳足跡的努力。今年 4 月，Gojek 發表第一份「永續發展報告1」，其中揭露至 2030 年實現零排放的計畫，包括將車隊轉換為 100% 電動車。此外，Gojek 也正在積極探索開發一個完整的電動車生態系統，透過科技來解決司機夥伴使用的障礙，確保最佳的消費者體驗。
關於 GoTo 集團與 Gojek
GoTo 集團是印尼最大的科技集團，其融入日常生活的 "go-to" 生態系統，涵蓋了大多印尼消費者家庭支出的範圍。GoTo 透過 Gojek、Tokopedia 和 GoTo Financial 品牌，將電子商務、隨選服務和金融服務結合起來，在東南亞創建了第一個在單一生態系統中包含這三個基本需求的平台。GoTo 的使命是「推動進化」，透過完整的商家和合作夥伴網路，提供無與倫比的商品及服務，並運用其領先的電子支付和金融服務業務滿足顧客對各項服務的完整需求。
Gojek 是東南亞領先的移動服務平台，也是多樣服務生態系統模式的先驅，提供包括交通、食品配送、物流等一系列服務。Gojek 成立於 2010 年，理念是利用科技來消除生活中隔閡，將消費者與市場上提供最好的商品和服務連結起來。初期專注於快遞和摩托車叫車服務，並隨後於 2015 年 1 月在印尼推出該應用程式。自此，Gojek 已經成長為東南亞領先的移動服務平台，提供從運輸、食品配送、物流和許多其他服務的機會。截至 2021 年 3 月，Gojek 提供的 iOS 和 Android 應用程式，已被東南亞地區的使用者下載超過 1.9 億次。
Gojek 致力於解決消費者面臨的日常挑戰，同時改善整個東南亞地區數百萬人的生活品質，特別是非正規部門和微型、小型和中型企業 (MSMEs)。
成立於 2011，Gogoro 憑藉創新的力量，改變你我使用能源的方式；透過重新思考都會能源，我們啟發世界不斷地尋找更聰明、更永續的城市移動之道。Gogoro 的電池交換與車輛平台，提供一個智慧、已驗證、且永續的長期生態系，造就了嶄新的都會移動方式。一路走來、我們期許自己在車輛設計、推廣電動化、智慧電池設計、電池交換、利用人工智慧聰明地管理電池供需與安全的先進雲端服務等面向上，持續開創新局。即便這個任務是如此艱鉅，對 Gogoro 而言，有機會挑戰「突破現狀、設立新標準、在我們居住的城市中成就更高規格的永續運輸」等目標更顯難能可貴！更多資訊請搜尋：https://www.gogoro.com/tw/press
