Guangzhou, China – A station where drivers can switch their depleted electric vehicle batteries for fresh ones has opened in China.

China Southern Power Grid (CSG) and Better Place opened the Switchable Electric Car Experience Center in Guangzhou’s Pearl River New Town. It marks Guangzhou as the starting point for electric vehicle (EV) network infrastructure in the five southern provinces served by CSG.

The entire switch process takes less than five minutes and is completely automated, safely and efficiently switching out depleted batteries for fully-charged ones.
