CATL’s first battery swapping station in China

Contemporary Amperex Technology Limited, known as CATL, is one of the leading Chinese lithium-ion battery manufacturers. It was founded in 2011, and the company currently partners with global vehicle makers as well as with the local ones: BYD, Hyundai, Tesla, Volkswagen, BMW…

Blue Park Smart Technology’s battery swap station in China

On the 18th of January, the company launched a battery swap station by the name of EVOGO, claiming that the swap will take one minute.

According to Chen Weifeng, general manager of CATL’s subsidiary Contemporary Amperex Energy Service Technology Ltd, the battery producer will set up swap stations in 10 locations throughout China, and consumers will be able to use the service via an app.

EVOGO, he added, was created to help owners deal with “the problem of range anxiety, the difficulty of recharging, and high purchase and driving costs.” EVOGO’s introduction to battery swapping comes as electric-vehicle manufacturers compete to minimize prices and “range anxiety” in order to enhance product appeal, particularly in China, where EV sales have exploded.

battery swapping NIO

When it comes to this sort of technology, we have to mention the pioneer brand, NIO. NIO has built over 700 battery swapping stations in China so far, creating a wide network of coverage. Geely, another Chinese carmaker, announced building 5000 battery swap stations by 2025.

The current issue with this technology is compatibility between brands. If CATL, NIO, Geely, and others are serious about battery swapping, the packs and connections must be standardized. If an NIO car can only be changed at an NIO station and a FAW vehicle can only be swapped at a CATL station, the consumers will be completely turned off to battery switching.
