The trial operation of pure electric buses and Haitai Comprehensive Charging and Changing Station mean the beginning of large-scale demonstration of pure electric buses.
Haitai Comprehensive Charging and Changing Station stands on the east of Lishen Outside Outer Ring Factory. State Grid invested 200 million and Lishen offered the building land. It is the most advanced Comprehensive Charging and Changing Station and could give service to 180 pure electric buses and monitor the operation of pure electric buses at any time. This Charging and Changing Station was completed in only 48 days and pioneered the large-scale Charging and Changing Station in China.
The used 40 pure electric buses are equipped with 60 sets of Lishen self-developed high-performance and high-quality power batteries. It greatly boosts the trial operation of Lishen power battery and builds stable foundation for the development of power battery industry. As a state-owned enterprise, Lishen should take this as an opportunity and take the historical and social responsibility of revitalization for the national industry by promoting power battery industry better. In the industrial revolution and market competition of new energy vehicles, Lishen should become a leader and make outstanding contributions to the sustainable development of Chinese new energy industry and the implementation and upgrade of new energy.
