Never again at the charging station?  The first real Dutch battery exchange station |  in the track

Never again at the charging station? The first real Dutch battery exchange station | in the track



يمكن بالفعل تغيير البطاريات بسهولة بالغة على الدراجات الإلكترونية.

حاول تسلا ورينو أيضًا ، لكنهما استسلموا

NIO ليست العلامة التجارية الأولى للسيارات التي تطبق تغيير البطارية. العلامات التجارية الأخرى التي جربت هذه التقنية ، لم تر أي جدوى منها. منذ ما يقرب من اثني عشر عامًا ، كان من الممكن أن تكون بالفعل مالكًا لـ رينو فلوينس زد استبدل بطاريتك الفارغة ببطارية ممتلئة. ثم أنشأت رينو والشركة الإسرائيلية بيتر بليس محطة استبدال البطاريات في شيفول.

كان التنقل الكهربائي لا يزال في مهده في ذلك الوقت. في غضون خمس سنوات ، تم بيع 145 نسخة فقط من فلوينس في هولندا. قادها عدد قليل من سيارات الأجرة حول أمستردام. فشل مشروع تغيير البطارية في النهاية ، وفي عام 2013 أفلس "بيتر بليس".

بحثت تسلا أيضًا في إمكانيات "تبديل البطارية". تم توسيع ذلك في عام 2013 أظهرها ماركة سيارات Elon Musk، لن أعود إليها مرة أخرى. بدلاً من ذلك ، اختارت Tesla شبكة الشحن السريع الخاصة بها مع ما يسمى Superchargers. أكثر من 40.000 من محطات الشحن هذه تعمل الآن في جميع أنحاء العالم في محطات شحن سريع خاصة.

NIO is striving for a network that covers the whole of Europe

Batteries swapping has become a success in forms of mobility other than cars. With an e-bike the battery can of course be changed very easily and this technology is also used in electric scooters.

For example, providers of shared bikes and scooters such as GO sharing Ensures that electric bicycles and scooters are supplied with a full battery on time. when you go with Electric bicycle for public transport If you have an empty battery, you can exchange it for a full one at the NS Station drop-off point.

nio Thought it was time to try again with cars. At the changing station, you can also choose a larger capacity battery. In addition to the existing batteries with a capacity of 75 or 100 kWh, there will also be a battery with a capacity of 150 kWh in due course.

After the battery exchange station in Tilburg, the battery exchange station in The Hague, Apeldoorn, Utrecht and Harmelen will soon follow. NIO eventually wants to find about a thousand exchange stations across Europe, creating a comprehensive network.


If all car manufacturers had to install the same battery in their models, it would limit their design options significantly.

Other developments related to electric driving are also moving quickly

According to NIO, a switching power plant should be considered primarily as an auxiliary service. Each car of this brand comes with a home charger. “Most drivers will mainly charge at home, but on long trips a power swap can be a solution,” said Marius Heller, CEO of Norway’s NIO, in a statement. Interview with AutoWeek. “Replacement terminals are mainly to upgrade your battery—or even downgrade your battery, should your circumstances change and you need a smaller, and therefore less heavy, battery.”

However, the question remains whether the battery replacement station will work. Technical developments surrounding electric driving are moving at lightning speed. For example, there are already a lot of experiments going on Wireless charging via road surface induction plates And fast charging is only going to get more powerful in the near future – which will dramatically reduce waiting times at the charging station.
