Globe, Gogoro PH team up to make world’s 1st hyper e-scooter more accessible

Gogoro Pulse is the world’s first hyper electric scooter

Globe Platinum and Gogoro Philippines, a leader in electric vehicle (EV) innovations, have joined forces to bring the future of mobility closer to customers, enabling them to minimize their carbon footprint by lessening air pollution in the metropolis.

The partnership represents Globe Platinum’s commitment to advocacies that matter, support for which can have a positive effect on how we live.

In an exclusive sneak peek last April 24, Gogoro Pulse, the world’s first hyper electric scooter, was unveiled at the Gogoro Experience Center in Greenbelt, Makati City, giving Globe Platinum customers a first glimpse into state-of-the-art Gogoro Smartscooters.

“At Globe, we are dedicated to providing our customers with access to innovative solutions that enhance lives and contribute to our planet’s well-being,” said Ernest Cu, Globe president and CEO. “We know that our Platinum customers want to be at the forefront, and this partnership with Gogoro allows them to experience cutting-edge EV technology first-hand through Gogoro Pulse.”

Gogoro is Globe’s debut in climate tech. The company envisions the two-wheel EV to contribute to reducing carbon emissions as more and more gas-fed cars cram Philippine roads. An average gasoline-powered car emits an estimated 4.6 metric tons of carbon per year, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

A three-month pilot test among 60 Globe employees last year resulted in 3,316 kg of carbon emissions avoided over a total travel distance of 42,399 km ridden. This amounts to removing harmful CO2 equivalent to consuming roughly 1,412 liters of gasoline, helping curb pollution in the crowded metropolis while also saving on fuel costs as petroleum prices continue to rise.

In addition, its seamless integration with Apple’s digital key technology in Apple Wallet elevates convenience to unprecedented heights.

Gogoro Smartscooters utilize revolutionary battery-swapping technology, enabling riders to exchange depleted batteries for fully charged ones quickly via the GoStation Network. Since debuting in December 2023, Gogoro has established 7 GoStations across Metro Manila and continues to expand its battery-swapping network.
