Geely, a Chinese manufacturer, plans to build 5,000 battery switching stations by 2025.

As sales of electric vehicles (EV) expand in the world’s largest car market, China’s Geely (GEELY.UL) plans to put approximately 5,000 battery switching stations globally by 2025, according to a statement released on Sunday.

The battery charging station, which was first used by Chinese EV manufacturers, is still in use today. Especially now that the cost of a vehicle has dropped significantly. Swapping batteries takes merely a few seconds at these battery swapping facilities. As a result, the customer’s charge time is reduced. It resembles a gasoline-powered car filling up its tank. EVs, on the other hand, have far longer ranges and are much more efficient.

By 2025, Geely’s competitor Nio wants to have 4,000 battery switching stations around the world. China’s EV structure is unusual, with some businesses opting for battery swapping technology and others opting for standard batteries. The company offers an app that can quickly discover a battery-changing station near you. It also displays the available battery packs in the area, allowing the consumer to select one based on their availability and timing.
