Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Tesla launched its 7,000th Superchargers in Chinese mainland on August 14, the U.S. EV manufacturer announced via its Weibo account, a twitter-like social media platform in China, around seven years after the first China-dedicated one was built in Shanghai.

The newly-launched facility is a V3 Supercharger that can churn out up to 250kW, versus the 120kW for the V2 model, and can add 250km of range by charging for 15 minutes.
Tesla claimed in early March it had deployed over 6,000 Superchargers and operated more than 760 Supercharger stations in over 300 cities across the Chinese mainland.
The number of Tesla's Supercharger stations has to-day surpassed 900. In August, the automaker rolled out its V3 Superchargers in Shanghai, Tianjin, Yantai, Heze, Tengzhou, Lvliang, Guangzhou, Foshan, and Zhaoqing.
Tesla claimed in early Feb. that its Supercharger manufacturing factory in Shanghai started production, less than half a year after the project was officially launched in August 2020.
The expanding charging network is expected to accelerate the growth in the sales of Tesla's vehicles in China. Wholesale sales of China-made Tesla vehicles totaled 32,968 vehicles in July, 74% of which were exported outside China, according to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). By the end of July, the year-to-date wholesale volume of China-built Tesla vehicles amounted to 194,711 units.
