CATL has officially launched its EVOGO battery swap services in Xiamen, southeast China’s Fujian Province, making it the world’s first EVOGO city. The first four fast battery swap stations have now started operation,
The number of fast battery swap stations in Xiamen is expected to increase to 30 by the end of this year.
CATL’s EVOGO battery swap solution provides more EV users with access to a convenient refuelling experience.
At present, the special offer for renting one Choco-SEB block is RMB 399 per month, which will be dynamically adjusted according to different level of power consumption by users.
For each battery swap service at the swap station, the charge is almost the same as that of the fast charging service, and it is subject to dynamic adjustment according to different station locations and time slots.
In a press release, the company says: ‘The EVOGO battery swap solution will enable EV consumers to bid farewell to the inconvenience of refueling, and allows consumers with no charging parking spaces to enjoy the fun of EV driving as well’.
In the future, the Chinese battery manufacturer and technology company says it will ‘join hands with more partners to release more EVOGO vehicle models and deliver EVOGO services in more cities’.
Comprised of battery blocks, fast battery swap stations and an app, EVOGO will be first launched in ten cities, said Chen Weifeng, general manager of CAES.
Contemporary Amperex Energy Service Technology Ltd. (CAES) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CATL. Its EVOGO battery swap solution has been created in cooperation with multiple partners.
All parties involved have joined forces to cooperate in technology, resources and services to facilitate the construction of battery swap network and promote EVOGO vehicle models in Xiamen.
