CLP Upgrades Electric Vehicle Fleet with New Long-Range Models and Expands Quick Charging Network

CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP Power) has recently added 15 new electric vehicles (EVs) to its company fleet, enhancing its efforts in the movement for a greener, smarter Hong Kong. The new vehicles are the first of their kind in a Hong Kong corporate fleet and are capable of travelling as far as 400 km when fully charged. CLP Power has also opened a new multi-standard EV quick charger at the Ocean Terminal car park in Tsim Sha Tsui to cater to the public’s growing demand for green motoring.

The new e-saloons will be used in daily operations and will replace retiring vehicles in the CLP Power fleet. Running solely on electric power, the silent, zero-emission EVs will contribute to better air quality in Hong Kong. The extended driving range of the new EVs will save more in fuel costs.

CLP Power first introduced EVs to its company fleet in 1984 and now has more than 100 EVs, ranging from private saloons and minibuses to light and medium goods vehicles and coaches.

Another important element of CLP Power’s support for green motoring is its network of 48 EV charging stations with 149 charging points in Kowloon, the New Territories, and Lantau. The company has extended its free charging service for EV drivers until the end of 2017.

The latest multi-standard EV quick charger at Ocean Terminal car park, which opened for public use in September 2017, is the first of its kind installed by CLP Power in a shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui.

CLP Power will continue to closely monitor the growth of the EV market and expand and upgrade its EV charging network. The company plans to gradually upgrade all the existing standard chargers to semi-quick chargers to provide motorists with a more convenient charging service.

Customers can download a CLP Power mobile phone app to find their nearest EV charging station. The app gives users a detailed map and suggested route.
