China's transport authorities say that the new fast charging points installed along Beijing-Shanghai expressway will be operational soon.

The quick charging stations are expected to be distributed along the expressway that that stretches just over 1200 kilometers. Charging points will be placed at 50-kilometer intervals, according to the State Grid Corporation's plan.

It takes about 30 minutes for electric vehicles to finish charging. The cost of electricity needed for this journey will be half the price of petrol needed to run the same distance.

Drivers only need to charge their electric or hybrid cars for 6 to 7 times, during the journey from Beijing to Shanghai. This would cost less than 400 yuan (about 65 US dollars). That is even less that the cost of a high-speed rail ticket from the capital to the commercial hub of Shanghai, according to a report released by China Central Television.

The State Grid Corporation of China has already built 24,000 charging poles along three main highways i.e. the Beijing-Shanghai, Beijing-Xianning(in central China's Hubei province) and Qingdao-Shijiazhuang expressways.
