Tesla has reached another major milestone in China with 7,000 Supercharger stalls. There are currently over 900 branded charging stations covering over 320 mainland Chinese cities to further enhance the Tesla ownership experience.
Tesla in China is facing unprecedented growth in demand for its vehicles. Customers are buying them very quickly, and more than 200,000 Chinese-made Model 3 and Model Y vehicles have already on the roads of the country. This is why Tesla is putting a lot of effort into building out the Supercharger Network.
By the end of 2020, Tesla had built over 600 Superchargers in China. The company intended to double that rollout rate in 2021 and appears to be on track. Tesla opened 5,000 Supercharger stalls in mainland China in January and celebrated the opening of its 6,000th stall in March. The company has now reached a new milestone and announced the opening of its 7,000th Supercharger stall on August 14.
Tesla plans to further expand its charging infrastructure as soon as possible in 2021 to increase customer confidence in vehicle charging anywhere in the country. Part of Tesla's plan is a new charger factory, which opened in early February. With its own charger factory in China, Tesla will expand its charging network even faster. 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 new energy vehicle market.
