China’s first safety standard on electric vehicle battery swapping passed review

The Safety Requirements for Electric Vehicle Replacement on recommended national standards (GB/T) drafted by BAIC New Energy, NIO, China Automotive Technology and Research Center and other units have passed the review.

A few days ago, the electric vehicle sub-committee of the National Technical Committee of Auto Standardization organized a 2020 standards review meeting in Shenzhen.

The Safety Requirements for Electric Vehicle Replacement on recommended national standards (GB/T) drafted by BAIC New Energy, NIO, China Automotive Technology and Research Center and other units have passed the review.

The formulation of this standard will provide guidance for the healthy and safe development of the battery-swap electric vehicle industry.

The standard takes the key elements of the vehicle, the battery swap system, the battery pack, the battery swap mechanism, and the battery swap interface as the research objects. It fully analyzes the battery swap process and potential failure modes during the vehicle driving process, determines the general safety requirements of the battery swap vehicle, the safety requirements of the entire vehicle, and the safety requirements of system components, and proposes the corresponding test and detection methods.
