Shell opens huge fast-charging plaza
Shell has opened a giant fast-charging plaza with 258 publicly accessible fast-charging points near Hong Kong. It lies about 2.5 kilometers from the Shenzhen airport. Not only is it Shell’s largest fast-charging plaza in the world, it also offers a Shell Café and Shell Car Wash.
Shenzhen Airport is located in southeastern China just north of Hong Kong and Macou. In this metropolis, Shell has opened the company’s largest EV fast-charging location in the world.
The Shell Recharge Shenzhen Airport EV Station, as the largely covered charging facility is officially named, serves more than 3,300 electric vehicles daily during the trial period. In addition to e-mobility services, the station offers Shell Select convenience stores, a Shell Café with on-site and on-the-go food and beverages, toilet facilities, vending machines and a car wash.
“The opening of this new location is part of our ongoing commitment to meet the changing demands of our customers in China,” said István Kapitány, global executive vice president Mobility at Shell. “We know that EV drivers are looking for a charging experience that is fast, convenient and comfortable. This is reflected in the occupancy rates of our locations in China that are two to three times higher than the local industry average.”
