Once in a lifetime, Xinjiang has become a popular tourist destination because of its vast size, rich landscape, beautiful scenery, desert oasis, sweet melons and fruits, ethnic fusion and other unique features that many people dream of.
Self-driving tour to Xinjiang is the way most people choose, because self-driving tour can play more deeply and thoroughly. Caravans, bed cars, off-road vehicles, vans, cars, and motorcycles, tricycles, bicycles, but few people self-drive electric car tour of Xinjiang, because they do not dare! Why do not dare? And why should I choose a tram tour of Xinjiang?
Xinjiang is too big!
1,664,900 square kilometers, accounting for about one-sixth of the country's total land area, is China's largest land area of the provincial administrative regions, equivalent to 3 France, 4 Japan, 7 Britain, 16 Korea so big! You don't know how big the territory of the motherland is until you go to Xinjiang! Self-driving tour of Xinjiang is equivalent to touring several countries.
There are too few charging posts in Xinjiang!
At present there are more than 3,600 charging posts, at first glance a lot of ah, but the area is large ah, the distance between the city and the city is less than a few hundred kilometers more than a few thousand kilometers, between the city and the city and more desert on earth, the distance between the charging posts is also less than a few hundred kilometers, more to thousands of kilometers without charging posts! Compared with more than 200,000 charging piles in Guangdong, Xinjiang is pathetically small. Driving around Xinjiang, even a gas car will have anxiety, let alone a pure electric car!
There are so many attractions in Xinjiang!
Xinjiang tourism is most suitable for self-drive, because a random attraction is super large, many attractions must be driving into the tour, but also to stay inside for two or three days to play. Pure electric car full charge before departure, to the scenic area has been consumed part of the trip into the scenic area will have to have hundreds of kilometers, and so out may be depleted, or even halfway on the break. At present, there does not seem to be a charging post installed in the scenic area.
Why do we dare to tour Xinjiang in a pure electric car?
When choosing a tram, I looked at a lot of old and new domestic brands, and after comparing them, I felt that Azera had the best service. When we bought the car, there is a service that we can enjoy twelve times a year, as long as you can drive to the place without electricity, their nanny car can send electricity to your car. Because of this service as a guarantee, we have the confidence.
What did you do before you left?
1, upgrade the battery: we purchased the original battery is 70 degrees, range of 400 kilometers, the battery capacity of short-distance travel properly, but long-distance travel, especially in Xinjiang is certainly not used. The upgrade cost of 800 yuan a month for a 100-degree, 600-kilometer range of large batteries, in exchange for the regular discounted range is almost 450 kilometers or so.
2, planning the route from Hangzhou to Xinjiang: Shanghai-Shaanxi high speed plus Lianhuo high speed, pure tram driving tour is the biggest problem is charging, if every two or three hundred kilometers along the way there is a charging post, for the driver and the car is the most suitable, I usually drive two hours to rest, just to charge the car in one fell swoop. The Azure app has its own navigation, and Baidu Gaode also has new energy navigation, both of which are designed to route according to the location of the charging post.
I looked at the navigation and map of the first stop in Xinjiang from Hangzhou is Xingxingxia service area, direct, the whole process of about 3,100 kilometers, according to 200 kilometers about two hours to rest and charge, need to charge 15 or 16 times, including eight or nine times on the highway, six or seven times off the highway. After getting off the highway will also play some local attractions, such as Qinghai Lake and Chaika Salt Lake in Qinghai, Zhangye and Dunhuang in Gansu, there are also many places worth visiting, check out the farthest two charging piles are about 450 kilometers apart from Chaika to Dachaidan in Qinghai, just to challenge the limits of our battery.
3, planning the route of Xinjiang: from the Xingxingxia service area will officially enter the Xinjiang region, Xinjiang humanities in the south, the scenery in the north, the original plan is a large loop around the north and south. But check out the charging pile within Xinjiang is really not optimistic, and north and south down our physical exertion is also very large. This time, let's take the north side first.
Usually also look at other travel bloggers share, like the place to write down, and so they have the opportunity to go to see, the capital of Urumqi have to go to see it, Kanas water monsters have to explore it, Narathi grasslands have to spill a joy it, the big sea road no man's land have to cross it, the flame mountain have to go to make a card it, but also have to go to the cocoa to see if the shepherd is in ......
The route is initially arranged as follows: Hami - Turfan - Urumqi - Changji - Shihezi - Ili - Tacheng - Altai - Fukang - Hami
I'm looking forward to driving around Xinjiang soon, or purely by tram, so I'm nervous and excited to think about it.
4, organize camping equipment and belongings: this is the longest time spent on each preparation for the driving tour, both technical work and physical work. How many years of self-driving experience but there will still be more things to bring, forgetting things. This trip to Xinjiang will certainly be camping in the prairie, tents, tables and chairs, kitchen systems, sleep systems, a variety of raw and cooked snacks, regular medication first aid drugs, etc., the weather in Xinjiang may be a day over four seasons, spring, summer, autumn and winter clothing and shoes have to be prepared, in addition to shooting equipment, laptops, cameras, drones, sports cameras, several tripods and a large box. The previous self-drive was a Shepherd, the trunk space is large enough, this time is the Azera space is obviously much smaller, these supplies after a few streamlined barely all stuffed in.
5, organize the mood: this is very important, after all, it is the first time to drive pure tram long-distance travel, and is to Xinjiang, perhaps the road will encounter many unexpected things, but also line is beyond my ability to do things. Can you face all kinds of difficulties with a normal heart? Can you stick to the road you choose? Although travel is very beautiful, but the process of travel is very hard, this hard is the experience, this hard is the subject, this hard is the cornerstone of growth, this hard is the sweetest candy when recalled later.
All set and ready to go! What will happen on the way? Will you be able to recharge and reach your destination smoothly? Please look forward to the update. Do you have any other trolley drivers who have been on similar long trips and would like to share some lessons learned?
