Rolled out in 2018, the swap stations provide a fast-charging experience that allows drivers to replace their used batteries with fully-charged ones within just five minutes instead of waiting for hours.
Last year, the company launched a battery-as-a-service program that lowers the price of an EV. Models sold under the scheme don’t include batteries, but a lease deal with a monthly subscription fee, KrASIA reported.
The EV maker now runs 193 battery swap stations in the country, according to the same post, with a goal of reaching 500 by the end of this year.
