Gogoro have been mak­ing waves in Tai­wan over the last 18 months, hav­ing sold 15,000 of their Smartscoot­ers, with the own­ers log­ging over­three mil­lion kilo­me­tres. Whatõs so smart about it? All the usual func­tions can be con­trolled by an app Ð but the best bit is the bat­tery dock­ing sys­tem, which al­lows you to swap the bat­ter­ies in un­der a minute and get back on your way.

Gogoro have 270 dock­ing sta­tions in Tai­wan and with a 100km range youõll never be stranded. A Smartscooter cur­rently costs US$3000 (£2431) in Tai­wan and you pay a monthly fee to use the Gogoro bat­ter­ies, which means you donõt need to worry about costly re­place­ments. The monthly fee varies from US$10-$30 de­pend­ing on your mileage.

Gogoro have re­cently ex­panded to Ber­lin, and have said they will be com­ing to the UK soon.
