The Chinese division of Tesla announced its intention to build a superclass charging column factory in Shanghai, which is expected to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2021.

In this factory’s construction, Tesla China plans to invest about 42 million yuan (about 6.4 million dollars). At the initial stage, the plant will produce 10 thousand charging columns annually, mainly V3 models. The company said that this model’s column is capable of 15 minutes of charging the car’s battery to increase its power reserve to 250 kilometers.

Currently, all Tesla superclass-charging speakers used in China are imported from the United States.

According to the data, in October, Tesla installed 30 charging stations with 219 super-class charging columns in 18 cities in China. By the end of 2020, the Tesla network in China is expected to have almost 650 charging stations with more than 5,000 super-class charging columns.
