Geely Thinks Battery Swapping Is The Future For EVs


After trialing out the service for its fleet of EV taxis, Geely is ready to move its battery swapping service to the next level. Shown at the 2021 Wuzhen Internet Conference, the service has been named E-Energee.

The first battery swapping station from E-Energee came online in Chongqing in September 2020 and over the past 12 months, its service has expanded to ten Chinese provinces with the goal of bringing 5,000 stations online across China by 2025.

Under the E-Energee service, drivers are able to swap their battery for a fully charged one within 59 seconds through automatic registration payment service that allows them to drive into the station and automatically swap the battery without users exiting the vehicle.

Based on previous computations the cost for a battery swap would be just 55 yuan or about P 413.20. It still costs less than a full tank of gas, and can give almost 400 kilometers of driving range in the same time it takes to fill up a gasoline powered car.

The current E-Energee service is predominantly used by mobility fleets who are able to have their electric vehicles running with greater efficiency through the use of battery swap that cuts out longer charging times.
