City to get 6,000 green car charging spots

The city government plans to expand its network of charging spots for new-energy vehicles to 6,000 by the end of next year.

The move will help to provide a comprehensive service to users of environment friendly cars, the Shanghai Electric Power Co said.

By the end of 2015, there is likely to be 10,000 “green” cars on the city’s streets, it said. The city now has 24 power stations and 2,020 charging spots, most of which are near car dealerships, offices and residential areas. The new network will increase coverage to parking lots and park-and-ride areas.

The government’s target is to have one charging spot for every 10 square kilometers in suburban areas, and one every 5km in downtown areas.

Shanghai International Auto City in Jiading will be used as a trial area for the new network.
