MASSIVE BEIJING CHARGING STATION CAN CHARGE 30 E-BUSES AT A TIME

China State Grid has opened the world’s largest ultra-fast EV charging station in Beijing. The 26,500-square-meter charging complex at Xiaoying Terminal has 25 360 kW chargers and five 90 kW chargers, and can charge 30 electric transit buses at a time.

Xiaoying Terminal originally supported a natural gas hybrid bus fleet. At least 10 city bus routes have now converted to battery-electric buses. For example, route 13 is using Foton buses with battery technology from Microvast. Recharging takes 10-15 minutes, and takes place 2-3 times per day, during driver breaks, with several route loops between each charge. There are already plans for the facility to be expanded as more bus routes convert to EVs.
