【看英文中國郵報學英文】週日早上台北橋電動車快閃活動,Gogoro邀請YAMAHA、A Motor宏佳騰等各廠牌車友共襄盛舉,共計1572台電動車參加,創金氏世界紀錄。

A group of more than 1,500 scooter riders took part in a flash mob on the Taipei Bridge on Sunday morning, setting another world record. The Taiwan-based e-scooter corporation Gogoro invited riders from other competitors such as YAMAHA, A Motor to join the event for the first time.

號稱「行駛過程零排放的寧靜革命」,自2016年起,Gogoro連續四年舉辦快閃活動,去年有1303台電動車參與,刷新金氏世界紀錄 「世界最大規模電動機車遊行」。

The so-called “a silent revolution with zero CO2 releasing when riding,” Gogoro launched the annual flash mob in 2016. There were 1,303 riders participating in the event last year which broke the world record as well.

車友們還排出「Go World」字樣,邀請全世界一起看到台灣電動機車的發展成果。| Riders even formed the words “Go World” to show the world how Taiwan has been successful in this innovative industry. (PHOTO: Gogoro Taiwan Facebook)

電動機車產業近年來在台灣不斷擴張,2011年成立的Gogoro是台灣電動機車龍頭,2015年在台灣上市第一批智慧雙輪。在今年八月也推出電動車共享服務GoShare,在台灣這個高度使用機車的社會,極力推廣以電動車代替機車,反思都市內能源使用的永續性。

The e-scooter market in Taiwan has been expanding in recent years. The industry giant Gogoro was founded in 2011 and launched the first model of Smartscooter in 2015. In August this year, Gogoro launched GoShare, a scooter-sharing service following the competing e-scooter brand WeMo who launched such service in 2016. 

Taiwan possesses extremely high density of motorcycles. Whether the e-scooter, which claims to be cleaner and more sustainable, could replace traditional motorcycles is yet to know.
