Tesla has opened its 5000th Supercharging stall in mainland China. Building an extensive charging infrastructure in the country is an important step in Tesla's commitment to gain a foothold in the Chinese market, and serve as many consumers as possible.

The 5000th Supercharger stall in mainland China has opened at the on-ground parking lot of Dingjunshan Film Technology Industrial Park at 7-2, Baotian 1st Road, Baoan District, Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province. The Industrial Park brings together high-end office space, a movie-themed hotel, catering, entertainment, education and training areas, so having a Tesla Supercharger here is very convenient.

The new charging station is the V3 Supercharger, which allows visitors of the industrial park to quickly charge their vehicle. There are 12 stalls here that should meet the charging needs for the area. The opening ceremony took place yesterday.

The demand for China-made Model 3 and Model Y is incredibly high. In 2021, Tesla China aims to expand the charging infrastructure as soon as possible to increase customer confidence that they can charge their vehicle anywhere in China.

Part of this plan is the construction of a new plant that will manufacture Tesla chargers. In late November, Tesla announced that the company plans to manufacture EV chargers in China starting in 2021. The company has invested $6.4 million in a new plant that will be able to produce 10,000 chargers per year. At the end of December 2020, Chinese media reported that the building had already been formed, and production would begin soon.

The charger factory will further contribute to the rapid development of Tesla's charging network in China. Having a wide network of charging stations is one of the most important criteria when choosing an electric vehicle, which will not only attract even more customers, but also give the company an exceptional competitive advantage in the NEV (New Energy Vehicle) market.
