Title: Surge in Electric Vehicles on Spring Festival Transport Road Leads to Charging Chaos
Kuai Technology reported on February 8 that the surge in domestic new energy vehicles has resulted in a significant increase in the “appearance rate” of electric vehicles on the Spring Festival Transport Road. However, the inadequate charging facilities at some service areas have led to chaotic scenes of electric vehicles vying for charging piles.
A netizen recently uploaded a video showing dozens of electric vehicles waiting for a charging pile at the Dasheng Expressway Parking Area in Dong’an County, Yongzhou City, Hunan Province. According to car owners working in Guangdong, they had to queue up for charging as soon as they left Guangdong to return home for the Chinese New Year, expressing their helplessness.
The video revealed an overwhelming queue of electric vehicles in front of the charging station, with drivers even resorting to jumping the line, exacerbating the chaos. Many netizens ridiculed the situation, but it remains an objective fact that charging electric vehicles during the peak period of Spring Festival travel is difficult.
While the usual usage rate of these charging piles is not very high, they struggle to meet the needs of electric vehicle owners during holidays and Spring Festival travel, leading to queues for charging and rush for piles. The surge in electric vehicles during this period presents a challenge for operators, as installing too many charging piles can lead to financial losses.
The report concludes with a reminder for electric car owners to plan their charging routes in advance during the Spring Festival transportation and to explore alternative charging options to avoid congestion.
