Shell has opened its largest EV charging station globally in Shenzhen, China, featuring 258 public fast-charging points.
The Shell Recharge Shenzhen Airport EV Station is located roughly 2.5 km from Shenzhen Airport Terminal and, in addition to EV charging, offers Shell Select convenience retailing, Shell Café, vending machines, and a driver’s lounge.
The station, which is a joint venture between Shell and BYD Electric Vehicle Investment Company Limited, also features rooftop solar panels that could generate about 300,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable electricity per year, which will be used to charge customers’ vehicles.
István Kapitány, Global Executive Vice President for Mobility at Shell, said the opening of this new site is part of their ongoing commitment to meet the evolving needs of customers in China.
“We know that EV drivers are looking for a charging experience that is fast, convenient, and comfortable, and this is reflected in the utilisation rates of our sites in China, which are two to three times the local industry average. China is one of the most important growth markets for Shell Mobility. We look forward to offering pleasant mobility experiences to more customers in China in the future.”
