The Shijingshan District in Beijing will be host to the massive car complex, capable of charging 80 EVs per day. The complex includes 30 fast-charge points, capable of charging a car to full power within 40 minutes, and 20 slow-charge points that will charge a car in two hours. The project is a joint venture between Shougang Corporation, one of China’s largest steel companies, and Tellus Power, which manufactures electric vehicle charging stations with the companies collectively investing 15 million yuan ($2.36 million) in the complex. The station is only expected to be compatible with domestically produced electric vehicles, particularly those produced by BAIC Motor and BYD. The complex comes as part of China’s state wide push for more EVs, though it may risk further discouraging foreign manufacturers from trying to export their products to the country.
