China's first payment card for recharging electric vehicles was sold in Changzhou, east China's Jiangsu province on Feb.17, 2016. From this point on, Chinese people can expect to see an increasing number of electric vehicles on the expressway.

"With the charging card, I have no more worries when driving my electric car on the express way. I decide to take my electric car on a trip to Yangzhou tomorrow," said Zhu Xinglong, owner of China's first charging card.

Living in Changzhou, Zhu has a domestic brand of electric vehicle. His job requires him to travel between Changzhou, Yangzhou and Huai'an. He pays much attention to charging services and equipment on the expressway.

"I could not take my electric car on long road trips in former days. It was inconvenient for me to recharge my electric car if it began running out of power on the expressway as I had to drive long distances before I could find a charging station," said Zhu.

For the time being, 59 fast charging stations have been put into operation along the expressway in east China's Jiangsu province. A charging card sales network, which is composed of 64 business outlets for power supply, was officially launched on Feb. 4, 2016.
