Electric scooter brand Gogoro announced March 1 that the number of newly licensed electric scooters in Taiwan in the first two months of 2022 reached 7,308 units, more than double the same period last year, with a growth rate of 132.2%.
Compared with the booming sales performance of electric motor scooters, the sales of traditional fuel scooters continued to decline. The number of new licenses of traditional fuel scooters in January and February 2022 declined by 10.4% compared with the same period last year. The Gogoro press release also noted that since March 2021, the number of new licenses of traditional fuel scooters on a monthly basis has seen negative year-on-year declines for 12 consecutive months.
Gogoro’s sales figures show that in January 2022, the number of newly licensed electric scooters was 3,025, an increase of 109.6% over the same period last year, and in February, despite fewer working days due to the lunar new year holiday and a shorter month, the sales performance was even more dazzling. The number of new licenses in February was 4,283, an increase of 151.2% over the same period last year, and 41.6% more than in January.
In the period from October to February, the Gogoro brand electric scooters made up more than 94.1% of total electric scooter sales in Taiwan.
