VTV.vn - The deal sees Gojek become the first tech platform to use electric motorbikes to provide ride-hailing services for users in Vietnam

Gojek and Dat Bike announced that they will partner to pilot the use of electronic motorbikes to serve the transportation, logistics and food delivery needs of Gojek users in Vietnam. This makes Gojek the first technology company in Vietnam to pilot Dat Bike electric vehicles, as well as the first platform to pilot mobility services via electric motorbike to users in Vietnam. As part of the agreement, Dat Bike will provide Gojek driver-partners with access to Dat Bike Weaver++ motorbikes for use when fulfilling GoRide, GoFood, and GoSend orders on the Gojek platform. Using Dat Bike Weaver++ bikes, Gojek’s driver-partners can save up to 4x on fuel costs, versus internal combustion engine (ICE) motorbikes, enabling them to save on operating costs whilst helping to significantly reduce carbon emissions. Dat Bike’s Weaver++ can be fully charged in just 3 hours. With a top speed of 90km/h and a range of 200km on a full charge - Gojek driver-partners can enjoy efficient performance ensuring they can maintain their earnings. Drivers can charge their Dat Bike battery for free at tens of community charging points in Ho Chi Minh City. In addition, Weaver++ is also equipped with a fast charging port so that it can quickly charge the first 100km in 1 hour at any household electrical outlet and in just 20 minutes at Dat Bike's fast charging station. The Dat Bike Weaver++ is uniquely equipped with a powerful 7000W engine and tubeless tires, making the bikes easy to maneuver, and limiting the risk of punctures which might cause inconvenience to the drivers. The single fork design of the electric vehicle and large saddle also provides a smooth and comfortable experience for Gojek driver-partners and their passengers.

Son Nguyen, CEO Dat Bike, said, “This project is part of Dat Bike’s ambition of converting all gasoline motorbikes to electric motorbikes in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. Those driving for technology platforms account for a large number of people who use motorbikes quite frequently. Through this pilot, Dat Bike aims to persuade more users, including tech platform drivers, about the power and convenience that electric motorbikes can offer. It also aims to accelerate the transition to greener transportation for a better environment.” Sumit Rathor, General Manager of Gojek Vietnam, said, “Vietnam is an important market for Gojek, and our aim is to continue to provide users with impactful solutions that support the sustainable growth of our partners and deliver quality, and convenient services at an affordable price. Partnerships like this are incredibly important and will benefit our entire ecosystem, helping us to deliver even greater value for all our users while creating a positive impact on the community in which we operate.” Sumit Rathor added, “In-line with GoTo Group’s “Three Zeros by 2023” commitment, our partnership with Dat Bike is an important step on this journey and supports our efforts in helping Gojek cut its emissions and transition its fleet to 100% EVs. This partnership also enables us to join hands with the Government’s common goal of reducing emission, contributing to the sustainable future of Vietnam.” From 18 May 2023, Gojek users will have a chance to enjoy GoRide, GoFood, and GoSend services on Dat Bike electric motorbikes, which are compact, quiet, and emission-free.
