NaaS combined with Hyundai Motor Group (China) to develop a charging management service for Hyundai car owners. The company also said the two parties will aim to empower potential EV charging businesses via the partnership.
The NaaS and Hyundai partnership enables charging services on Hyundai vehicles, allowing owners to check charging status via a mobile app or center console.
China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) statistics suggested that, in 2023, electric passenger vehicle sales in China will reach nine million, with annual penetration of EVs expected to climb to 36%. Increasingly, investment in charging infrastructure in China has been devoted to meet the growing demand for charging, the company said.
As of March 31, 2023, NaaS’ network has connected 55,000 charging stations and 575,000 chargers, with a charging volume in the first quarter of 1.023 billion kWh, which represents 21% of the public charging volume in China, the company said.
