The idea is to put on the road over 30,000 new energy vehicles by the end of 2020
Didi Chuxing, China’s largest freight transport platform, announced its strategic partnership with the Chinese province of Hainan and China Southern Power Grid. The target? Provide complete EV service solutions, including expansion of the EV charging infrastructure and leasing and sales operations in Hainan.
To want to take this emphasis is the island province in the tropical south of China, which plans to put on the road over 30,000 new energy vehicles by the end of 2020. These will be supported by a network of over 28,000 recharging points.
In 2018, 4,602 charging posts were activated in Hainan
There were 23,000 electric vehicles in Hainan in 2018, accounting for 1.8% of all vehicles in the province, according to data reported by the local government. By the end of 2018, a total of 4,602 charging posts were in operation in Hainan, with 3,502 open to all models of electric vehicles.
While trying to implement charging services and automotive services throughout southern and southwestern China, the partnership involving the Hainan government seems to be the logical next step for Didi’s newly established strategic ties with China Southern Power Grid.
