Electric car sales, which took a big leap last year, also triggered the country's charging infrastructure, with the number of charging columns in China increasing by 2021 percent in 70. The total number of electric and rechargeable hybrid vehicles in China exceeded the 2021 million mark in 3,5. This number represents a 2020 percent increase compared to 170.
In the last 5 years, 7,7 million electric cars have entered Chinese traffic. This number is roughly equal to half of the global total. In order to feed so many vehicles, the government has made it a priority to increase charging opportunities on the roads. In fact, this target is also officially registered for the current five-year plan period. The country had 31 million 2021 thousand charging columns as of December 2, 617. The pace of their placement continues by gaining momentum day by day. As a matter of fact, one third of the existing one was established in 2021. Currently there is one charging column per 3/4 electric vehicle. On the other hand, these columns are scattered across 74 charging stations, thus an average of 700 columns per station.
However, China preferred to bring battery replacement systems to the agenda. Nio undoubtedly takes the lead in this area with 789 stations. As of 2021, the number of charging columns in the country is 2 thousand 617 million; the number of charging stations is 74; The number of battery changing stations was also recorded as 700.
