Two of the largest charging poles operators in Shanghai announced to collaborate on electric car rental service and charging poles yesterday, in order to further expand their charging network in China.

Shanghai-based Global Carsharing & Rental Co and Shanghai SAIC AnYo Charging Technology Co signed an agreement to establish strategic co-operation yesterday.

The two companies said they will collaborate on electric car rental service, customer resources, charging poles and charging facilities. Companies said they also plan to add more charging poles in order to achieve the goal of operating 660,000 charging poles and 300,000 shared cars in China.

"We aim to further accelerate the development of new-energy vehicles and car sharing through the co-operation between two companies," said Cao Guangyu, general manager of Shanghai-based Global Carsharing & Rental Co.

The two companies are among the largest operators of chaging poles in Shanghai, which provided charging service for new-energy vehicles owners.

"There are about 30 operators of charging poles in Shanghai," said David Zhang, an independent automotive consultant. “Global Carsharing & Rental Co and Shanghai SAIC AnYo Charging Technology Co are among the top 5 companies.”

The co-operation between two companies can help them to further expand their charging network, enhance market competitiveness and deepen market influence.

Shanghai-based Global Carsharing & Rental Co said it plans to further expand its business into 50 cities in China with more than 21,000 shared cars this year.

Shanghai SAIC AnYo Charging Technology Co also plans to add about 2,000 charging poles this year. The company now has 8,089 charging poles in the country.
