On December 28, 2019, the Taipei Int'l Auto Show started, which will last until January 5, 2020. One of the six main topics of the Auto Show is an environmentally friendly electric vehicle running on clean energy. The Auto Show is also more in line with international standards, because with the tightening of emissions requirements, electric cars have become an inevitable trend in the global automotive industry.
Currently, Tesla, the leading brand of electric vehicles, also participated for the first time at the Auto Show, where various traditional automakers also introduced new energy vehicles.
Despite the fact that Tesla is a young brand, it invests all its energy in new energy vehicles. By the influence of ambition, aspirations and tireless work of its CEO Elon Musk, the company has become the world's leading brand of electric vehicles. Tesla first participated in the Taipei Int'l Auto Show. This is also due to the fact that for the first time this year, the car dealership included eco-friendly electric cars in the topic.
Tesla is currently deploying Model S, Model X and Model 3 in Taiwan, which in reality could lead to hot sales. Of the entire Tesla lineup, Model 3 is the most popular in Taiwan.
Due to the rapid growth of vehicle owners, Tesla also announced that the total number of Superchargers will reach 25 in 2020. In addition to the existing 14, Tesla has officially announced that two facilities will be opened: Chiayi Interchange and Zhubei High Speed Rail.
Zhubei High Speed Rail Supercharger is scheduled to open in January 2020, and Chiayi Interchange Supercharger was officially opened on December 27, 2019.
In 2020, it is planned to open six charging stations and it is planned to place them in Northern, Southern Taoyuan, Southern Taichung, Tainan, Northern Kaohsiung and Yilan County. The location of other Supercharger stations will be announced later.
The goal of a total of 25 Superchargers represents the continuous development of the Tesla charging network in Taiwan, and is also a positive commitment to create a charging life cycle for existing and future car owners. In addition to continuing to invest in charging stations, some regions will be one of the first in Asia to use new equipment with V3 technology.
The launch of Model 3 in August 2019 in Taiwan has already accelerated the development of sustainable energy in some regions of the country and has reduced carbon emissions. Currently, over 1,000 public buildings in some regions have Tesla's charging stations. The Charging department works with authorized Charging planners to work with the planner community.
Over 80% of car owners can enjoy charging at home. The installation rate is the highest in the Asia-Pacific region. There are many new developments in Taiwan at present. The clean electric life built by Tesla has already taken shape.
