As the Lunar New Year is approaching, many Chinese working in different provinces and cities will choose to return to their hometowns to reunite with their families. In the past, when driving back home, there was a chance of road traffic jams. In recent years, electric vehicles have become more and more popular. People returning home have to face another problem, that is, there may be long queues at the charging station, which may greatly affect the travel time at any time. required time.
A few days ago, some netizens uploaded a photo claiming to be taken at the charging station in the high-speed service area. The charging station has 8 charging positions, but they have been occupied by 8 new energy vehicles, mainly pure electric vehicles. There are another 4 electric cars waiting in line, and I don’t know how many cars are waiting outside the photo. Chinese car blogger @韩路, who has rich self-driving experience, said that based on 1 hour of charging for each car, it will take more than 3 hours for the last electric car in the photo to be fully charged at any time.
@韩路 also said that the 8 charging guns of the high-speed charging station in the photo can be used normally. It is quite lucky. Some bloggers pointed out that the failure of charging devices in the high-speed service area is not uncommon. Statistics found that in the Guangdong section of the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway, 48 charging piles 13 of them were broken. In addition to damaged charging piles that have not been repaired, some owners of plug-in hybrid vehicles that do not support fast charging will cause conflicts by occupying fast charging stations in order to save money. During the National Day holiday last year, there were reports of car owners snatching charging guns from all over China. Chinese media reminded that long-distance journeys may not use electric vehicles, or choose to find charging stations only after leaving the expressway and entering the city limits.
