NaaS, Hyundai Collaborate on EV Charging Services

Hyundai car owners can now check their charging status in real-time through a smart service app or at the center console.

EV charging service company NaaS announced it is combining forces with Hyundai Motor Group (China) to develop efficient charging management service for Hyundai car owners. The two companies say the partnership also offers the potential for future EV charging businesses.

Through such a management service, Hyundai car owners can check charging and charger installation status in real-time through a smart service app or at the center console.

China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) statistics suggest that, in 2023, electric passenger vehicle sales in China will reach 9 million, with annual penetration of EVs expected to climb to 36%. Increasingly investment in charging infrastructure has been devoted in China to meet the growing demand for charging, the companies say.

“Charging facilities as a significant component of new infrastructure serves a crucial role in improving the penetration of EVs,” Wang Yang, founder and CEO of NaaS said. “Partnered with new energy industry chain players, NaaS will engage users in faster, easier and more cost-effective charging service, and work with Hyundai Motor Group (China) to spur the upgrade of charging services.”

“China is the world’s biggest and fastest-growing EV market. The country not only has outstanding performance in EV sales and quantity of charging infrastructure built but also excels in EV service quality.” said Hyuk Joon Lee, president and head of China operations at the Hyundai Motor Group. “This will provide a valuable reference for Hyundai’s action of advancing EV service in the global market. Through cooperation with NaaS, Hyundai Motor Group will continue to improve and expand charging services to provide EV car owners with a more convenient and updated charging service experience.”

As of March 31, 2023, NaaS says its extensive network has connected 55,000 charging stations and 575,000 chargers. The charging volume in the first quarter was 1.023 billion kWh, representing 21% of the public charging volume in China.
