FUJIAN, CHINA, March 2(chinatrucks.com)--On February 22, China’s largest electric vehicle (EV) battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) and Chinese heavy equipment maker Sany Heavy Industry held a ceremony to put battery swap-enabled heavy trucks and dump trucks into operation in Ningde, Fujian, where the battery giant is headquartered. Fu Ning Line, China’s first highway route for electric heavy duty truck, was officially put into operation and the first electric residue trucks made by Sany also started delivery.

Globally, the major contributors to carbon footprints are from heavy-duty trucks, so the full electrification of transportation sector are imminent. Currently, the major concerns that the users have raised about the charging electric heavy-duty trucks are slow charging, inconvenient charging, and operational inefficiency caused by insufficient range. In this context, the battery-swapping electric trucks came into existence.

This can help eliminate the anxiety that are directly caused by long charging time and range anxiety for heavy truck vehicles and can improve vehicle operating efficiency, according to CATL.

These heavy trucks and dump trucks are equipped with CATL's high-capacity lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are designed to support both high-power fast charging and quick battery changes in 3-5 minutes, according to the press release.

CATL aims to speed up the electrification of vehicles in Fujian by setting up a battery swap network across Fujian highways and then spread to its neighboring provinces.

In January, CATL’s subsidiary CAES has rolled out EVOGO, its innovative modular battery swap solution, which includes battery blocks, fast battery swap stations, and an app, set to initially launch in ten selected cities in China.
