Tesla opened the 9,000th Supercharger stall in mainland China to provide the best charging experience for its customers. The manufacturer offers more than 1,200 Supercharger stations there, which may also be open to non-Tesla EVs soon.
Tesla has announced the opening of its 9,000th Supercharger ahead of China's traditional Mid-Autumn Festival, which is celebrated September 10-12. This weekend is usually the peak time for travel, as it is a great occasion for family gatherings, so adding a new charging station right now is very welcome. The 9,000th stall in mainland China was opened in Yiyang, Hunan Province.
Tesla's branded charging network in China is the most developed. Previous data show that as of August 30, it had over 1,200 Supercharger stations in mainland China and more than 700 destination charging stations offering more than 1,800 charging stalls.
On August 30, at the opening event of the 100th Supercharger station in Beijing, China, Zhang Lina, head of development and operations for Tesla's Supercharger network, said that Tesla will likely open its charging network for electric vehicles of other brands in the future. At the moment, Tesla has opened up its Superchargers to other brands of electric vehicles in several European countries. In addition, all indications are that the company will open its branded charging stations for non-Tesla EVs in the US before the end of the year. More detailed information about China has not yet been received.
