Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On Jan. 8, Blue Avenue, a ride-hailing platform of NEVs owned by SKIO Electric Vehicle Co., Ltd. (SKIO), signed an agreement with Jinniu District, Chengdu, Sichuan Province, aiming to put 30,000 NEVs into operation in Chengdu over the next five years and to radiate out to the whole western region of China gradually.
During 2017, Blue Avenue had put thousands of NEVs into operation in Hangzhou, Suzhou and Changsha, as well as in several other central cities. Up till now, Blue Avenue's national network has basically shaped with its deployment in 12 cities and six areas across China.
According to Chen Feng, founder of SKIO, Blue Avenue provides a set of new energy solutions to high-frequency mobility. The core characteristics of this mode are operating vehicles plus battery swapping stations. Different from the current charging mode of NEVs, SKIO employs swappable batteries, which can be swapped in 3 to 5 minutes at a battery swapping station.
SKIO aims to build up a national battery swapping network in the next five years via the plan of Blue Avenue. Supported by the national swapping network, SKIO is also ambitious to put 250,000 NEVs into operation over the next five years. These tactics will help SKIO to promote the development of NEVs and expand its market shares.
At present, Blue Avenue has established a partnership with Didi Chuxing and Dongfeng Motor. Moreover, thousands of battery swappable NEVs under Blue Avenue have been put into operation across China. Blue Avenue has achieved a real operation range of more than 200 million km.
SKIO begins with battery technologies, focuses on the application scenarios of ride-hailing vehicles and aims to achieve an all-industry ecological development driven by battery swapping network. Currently, SKIO and Didi, China's ride-hailing giant has established a JV, named Dishi.
