Dengcheng Charging Station, the first national electric vehicle charging station in China's central and western regions, was officially opened in Xiangfan, Hubei Province on Aug. 10, 2010.

Costing 10 million yuan and covering an area of more than 21,067 square meters, the first phase of the project currently is capable of charging electric buses, mid-size buses and small cars. It can charge five buses or eight mid-size buses at the same time.

Xiangfan has initially formed a relatively complete industrial chain of electric vehicles, including batteries, motors, electric controls, bus chassis, driving systems and completed vehicles in recent years. It has the "two vertical and three horizontal" technical route for the new energy vehicle industry and possesses more than 20 patents. Some of the core technologies have reached the international advanced level.

In addition, Xiangfan will also construct the Sanqiao North Charging Station and establish 30 charging poles in government agencies, communities, large buildings and parking areas by the end of 2010.
