CrossOver GX250

Manufactured in Maharashtra India, the CrossOver GX250 is Gogoro’s first India-made Smartscooter. The CrossOver GX250 captures the best of Gogoro’s new CrossOver Smartscooters while integrating India-specific features that Gogoro pilot riders in India requested.

New All-Terrain Chassis

Optimized for various road conditions, the CrossOver GX250 adopts a newly developed all-terrain frame that provides increased rigidity for improved strength and stability. The new frame also provides 176mm of ground clearance, the highest in Gogoro’s current vehicle lineup.

Performance and Easy Control

CrossOver GX250 utilizes a 2.5 kW Direct Drive that provides a top speed of 60+kph and a certified range of 111km. The CrossOver GX250’s new frame design greatly increases the durability of the suspension system and accommodates larger loads while emphasizing comfort and stability.

Flexible Cargo Capacity

Designed to adapt to various riding scenarios, the CrossOver GX250 provides passenger riding space as well as ample storage options with a new mounting point expansion system that includes 26 locking points. With the ability to leverage four cargo areas including a platform design headlight, foot, seat and rear cargo space, the CrossOver GX250 can easily accommodate most storage needs. To carry more, the rear seat can be flipped up or removed to add cargo storage as needed.

In August, India’s International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) certified the CrossOver GX250 for India. In November, Gogoro became the first foreign two-wheel OEM to be recognized by the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) that entitled the CrossOver GX250 for its EV financing programs.

“Gogoro was uniquely created to introduce a mass market shift to sustainable energy in densely populated cities by establishing an intelligent battery swapping ecosystem for vehicle refueling that is safe, scalable and open. There has been significant demand in India for Gogoro battery swapping, Smartscooters and technologies and we are excited to be launching commercially with a variety of partners,” said Luke. “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.”

Commercial Partnerships

As more and more businesses in India embrace the need for sustainable transportation they require new mobility solutions for logistics, delivery fleets and taxi services that not only achieve the best alternative to gas-powered vehicles but are well suited to the specific market and industry needs in India. Gogoro offers swap & go battery swapping in seconds that is safe, reliable, and always available, while tethered electric charging still requires dedicated parking and charge time that reduces rider availability and income. Gogoro is working with a variety of partners in the region across three core business categories.

Businesses and Fleet Operators – Gogoro continues to work with large and small partners to enable sustainable delivery companies such as Zypp and logistics fleets and taxi services using Gogoro battery swapping and Smartscooters, including transitioning from traditional ICE vehicles.

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) – Gogoro is working with partners like FutureEV to enable new sustainable business opportunities including the use of Gogoro’s GoShare platform that enables fractional and shared mobility-as-a-service deployments.

Turnkey Solution – Gogogo works with business partners to deploy a complete battery swapping ecosystem and Smartscooters that are made in India to new domestic and international markets like Nebula Energy in Nepal.
