EVOGO, the battery swap service brand of CATL, China's largest power battery manufacturer, has seen its service expand to a new city.
EVOGO's battery swap service was recently officially launched in Guiyang, Guizhou province in southwestern China, CATL announced today.
CATL now has four local EVOGO battery swap stations in operation in Guiyang, making the city the third to see the service available after Xiamen and Hefei.
EVOGO, a brand unveiled by CATL on January 22, is operated by its subsidiary, Contemporary Amperex Energy Service Technology (CAES).
