Tesla opened the largest of the supercharger charging stations used to charge its electric cars in China. There are exactly 72 chargers in the Shanghai factory.
Tesla, one of the pioneers of the electric car industry, announced the Supercharger charging station in Shanghai with a statement from the Chinese social media platform Weibo. This station stands out for being the company’s largest station to date.
The company’s previous largest station was the Fresno charging station in California, USA. The number of Supercharger charging points in this station was announced as 56. The Shanghai station far exceeded this number.
Electric cars are popular in China
Although there are 72 stations in the central point station called Jing’an International Center, it has been announced that these stations are V2 versions. That is to say, they have a slower charging speed than the V3 stations in Fresno. By the way, let’s also mention that Tesla Model 3 and Y also support V3 charging.
Electric cars are very popular in China. More than 20,000 Model 3 electric cars produced in factories in this country drive the streets of China. As a result, this country has become one of Tesla’s most important markets.
Tesla’s Gigafactory 3 plant in Shanghai is reportedly producing more than 23,000 electric cars. Some of these cars are exported to Europe and other countries, while others are sold in the Chinese market. That is why the need for Tesla charging stations is also increasing.
Tesla shares skyrocketed
While 2020 is not a very pleasant year to remember, it was a good year for Tesla. During this time, the company’s stock nearly boomed, and he managed to make Elon Musk one of the richest people in the world.
Outside countries such as China, the electric car market is becoming increasingly active. In our country, work is continuing on the domestic electric car TOGG. Many companies around the world are preparing to enter this market. What do you think of electric cars?
