China’s EV charging points saw rapid expansion in 2022


The number of charging points for electric vehicles (EVs) in China grew at a rapid pace in 2022, new data showed Wednesday.

The country had 5.21 million charging points at the end of 2022, including over 2.59 million built in 2022, said Tian Yulong, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

The country had 1,973 battery swapping stations at the end of 2022, including 675 built in 2022, he said, adding that China had over 10,000 power battery recycling service outlets at the end of 2022. The rapid growth in charging facilities is in line with the country’s booming new energy vehicle (NEV) sector.— Xinhua
