TAIPEI -- Taiwanese electric scooter maker Gogoro says it will tap local manufacturing partners and brands as it ramps up expansion into China, India, Indonesia and other markets this year ahead of a planned U.S. listing.

Gogoro is also working to sidestep the global chip and component shortage that has hit a swath of global industries, Chief Financial Officer Bruce Aitken said in a group interview on Wednesday.
