Tesla Supercharger factory officially opened and launched into operation. The first V3 piles rolled off the assembly line, marking the next phase of the manufacturer's expansion in China.
A few hours ago, Tesla announced that the construction of the company's new plant in China, which will produce Superchargers, has been officially completed. The plant was put into operation, and the first batch of Supercharger V3 products has already entered the assembly line.
As Tesla seeks to expand its market share in China, it is not only expanding its car production lines in the country, but also building a factory to manufacture chargers for its electric vehicles. Tesla announced in late November that it plans to produce electric car chargers in China starting in 2021.
In the construction of a 54,000-square-foot factory was invested 42 million yuan ($6.4 million). The facility will be able to produce 10,000 chargers a year, and it is reported that most of the piles produced there will be the fast-charging V3 variant.
The charging pile 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 exclusive, competitive advantage in the NEV (New Energy Vehicle) market.
China is a huge market for electric vehicles and especially for Tesla, which is very popular there. Tesla's team in China has significant plans to expand the charging infrastructure there to ensure the best ownership experience. The country's government is also helping pave the way for this expansion, because, thanks to Tesla, China will be able to quickly achieve its goal of increasing the number of electric vehicles on its roads.
