Last month, Tesla built 43 Supercharger stations, which were composed of 281 Supercharging piles, in 34 cities and counties in China. Of those, 7 stations were newly added in Hangzhou, each of which was equipped with 6 V3 chargers.
While announcing the building achievement in September, the automaker revealed it had already launched over 700 destination charging stations that embrace more than 1,730 destination charging piles in 330 plus cities in the country.
On Sept. 29, Tesla announced the launch of its 100th Supercharger station and 1,000th Supercharger in Shanghai, the first auto brand in China to deploy 100 supercharging stations in a city.
Tesla's first China-based Supercharger station was launched in Jinqiao Town, Shanghai in April 2014. In December 2019, the automaker's first V3 Supercharger station for the country also started operation in Shanghai.
To facilitate the charging network deployment in China, Tesla has locally manufactured Superchargers in Shanghai, where Tesla operates its first overseas complete vehicle plant. The Supercharger factory is mainly outputting the V3 piles.
Tesla's CEO Elon Musk previously confirmed in a tweet that the charging capacity at Tesla's Superchargers would be increased from 250 kW to 300 kW. However, he did not specify a time frame for the upgrade.
