Watch Chinese people change electric car batteries as fast as gas

The time for an electric car to run out of energy to replace a fully charged battery pack is only 1 to 3 minutes, as fast as refueling.

China is currently the fastest growing country in electric cars in the world, and is also the leading country in the battery electric car race. For example, China’s CATL battery manufacturer controls about 30% of the world EV battery market and is a partner of many giants of the global electric vehicle market such as Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Tesla of America.

In order to meet and replace people’s habit of using internal combustion engine cars, there are many battery replacement stations in China that help car owners change a fully charged battery in just 1 to 3 minutes, similar to like how they got to the gas station before.

Chinese companies like Aulton, Geely and Nio, plan to build more than 8,000 battery replacement stations by the end of the year and move toward a goal of 26,000 by 2025, a 17-fold increase from the current figure. In particular, startup Nio currently has the largest network with more than 700 battery replacement stations, providing customers with rechargeable energy packages.

Watch a video of a battery change station in China in action, the time to change the battery is as fast as gas.

Compared to the form of charging at the station, replacing the battery is more expensive but saves a lot of time for car owners and is still cheaper than cars with internal combustion engines. Moreover, synchronous battery replacement will help to ensure the life of the battery, and the manufacturer can also maintain the battery better than if it had to be regularly mounted on a vehicle.

The disadvantage of this method is that the investment costs for battery replacement stations are quite expensive, which can be 10 times less expensive than installing a fast charging station. At the same time, if the number of guests comes to change, the station may not have the necessary number of batteries.
