Beijing, July 11, 2022 – Volkswagen Group China’s charging joint venture CAMS New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (CAMS) today celebrated its third anniversary with a ‘CAMS DAY 2022’. Under the theme of ‘Charging into the Era of E-mobility’, the joint venture used the event to review its key achievements since its establishment and announced its future business layout, product roadmap, and a range of new innovative services. Founded in 2019, CAMS has become a significant part of the Group’s e-mobility eco-system, making rapid progress in building charging infrastructure and developing charging solutions across China. CAMS has built 760 supercharging stations, and more than 7,000 charging points, in 100 cities. The Group is accelerating its transformation under ‘NEW AUTO’ strategy, and aims to support the high-quality and sustainable development of China’s auto industry with comprehensive e-mobility solutions.
Dr. Thomas Manfred Müller, Executive Vice President of Volkswagen Group China, responsible for Group Research and Development China, and Chairman of CAMS, said: “With its long record of innovation for the benefit of Chinese customers, Volkswagen Group China has helped multiple generations get behind the wheel. Over the past three years, CAMS has kept rolling out new technology products and enhanced the charging experience, allowing more consumers to benefit from its premium service, and has reached multiple important milestones. The rapid development of CAMS will significantly boost the Group's transformation in China, while contributing to the development of sustainable mobility in China."
CAMS was jointly established by Volkswagen Group China, Star Charge, FAW, and JAC in 2019 as part of the Group’s efforts to complete its strategic layout in charging infrastructure and lay the foundation for e-mobility acceleration. CAMS is committed to creating a user-oriented one-stop vehicle charging solution and optimal charging service scheme. Based on intelligent charging facilities and a strong charging service quality system, it provides four charging scenarios – public charging, destination charging, home charging, and future charging – to create an intelligent, safe, and reliable all-round charging experience for users. Since its first supercharging station was built in 2020, over 600,000 BEV owners have become CAMS customers, resulting in a total of 2.6 million charges. In 2021, CAMS was awarded the ‘China Charging Pile Industry Innovation Award for Best Operational Service’, in recognition of the outstanding charging services it offers.
With the commitment to provide reliable charging services to BEV owners on the road, CAMS plans to build more than 17,000 charging points that cover most Chinese cities by 2025. To free BEV owners from ’charging anxiety‘, CAMS aims to ensure users can access a charging station within 5km from any point in cities where its charging services are fully deployed. In the future, CAMS will leverage the charging cloud platform as the core to build a comprehensive intelligent IOT charging system, and continue to deepen exploration in the fields of high-power charging, integration with autonomous driving, and robot automatic charging solutions. Together with CAMS, Volkswagen Group will continue to provide consumers with a more convenient charging experience, making e-mobility in China more accessible.
With the launch of the NEW AUTO strategy last July, Volkswagen Group has been rolling out a comprehensive and robust plan to enable the scaling up of future technologies, from mechatronics, and software, to battery and charging, and mobility solutions. Power will be a Volkswagen Group core competency by 2030, while infrastructure is key to maximizing the ‘NEW AUTO’ potential. To this end, Volkswagen Group China is accelerating electrification comprehensively to drive the transformation of future mobility. Together with its joint ventures, Volkswagen Group China plans to invest around 15 billion euros in e-mobility between 2020 and 2024 in China. By 2030, the percentage of NEVs is expected to exceed 40% in Volkswagen Group China’s entire fleet. Electrification will also help the Group reach its goal to operate carbon neutrally by 2050 at the latest.
