China: Xiamen building 1st battery charging & changing station for BEVs

The Xiamen Huarong Electric Vehicles Charging Station is located at the southeast of intersection between Hurong Road and Huli Avenue in Huli District, Xiamen

Xiamen will complete the construction of its first battery charging & changing station for battery electric vehicle (BEV) by the end of March, reports Strait Metropolis Daily.

According to the Xiamen Electric Power Bureau, Xiamen has been upgrading the current charging station on Huarong Road in Huli District into a battery charging & changing station, which will be the first one of its kind in Fujian by that time.

Instead of waiting for battery charging in several hours, the driver of a battery-powered car can change the battery in five to eight minutes. The station is expected to provide battery changing for 300 all-electric cars a day upon its completion.

Meanwhile, Xiamen will build another battery charging & changing station in Siming District, which is expected to be put into service before the 16th CIFIT (China International Fair for Investment and Trade) on September.
