Which one solves the pain points of electric vehicle users, charging pile or switching station?

The advantages and disadvantages of choosing a charging pile

At present, some auto brands such as Tesla, Nio, XPENG, Weimar etc. can install homecharging piles for free at users’ designated locations to enhance their services and customers’ satisfaction. This will not only save some expenses for consumers, also basically solve the user’s charging problems. Most consumers who buy electric vehicles currently travel in cities and meet their commuting requirements, the 300-400km battery range can satisfy users’ travel needs for about 3-5 days. When they get home at night, they can charge the vehicle, and many charging piles will have a discount on charging at night, which is more cost-effective than charging during peak hours, so one charging pile can meet the daily use of electric vehicles. In addition, since most models already support fast charging and can be charged to full in 1~2 hours in public charging stations, this basically eliminate the most charging anxieties of EV users.

Which one solves the pain points of electric vehicle users, charging pile or switching station?

Whereas in some scenarios, for operating vehicles like taxis and users who often run long distances, charging is somewhat a waste of time. According to the characteristics of lithium batteries, it can be judged that frequent fast charging and fast discharging will affect the range of the battery and cause continues battery decay, then battery replacement becomes a way out.

 

The advantages and disadvantages of choosing a battery replacement

As early as 2016, BAIC New Energy made a plan of battery swap for the development of electric taxis and established its own swap station to provide battery-replaceable services for BAIC New Energy’s taxis. Since such operating vehicles run hundreds of kilometers a day, the battery is basically unable to sustain for a day, so if you choose to charge, the taxi driver must waist lots of service time. Therefore changing the battery has become the most suitable way.
