Tesla China’s supercharger factory starts production
Beijing, Feb. 4, 2020
Tesla China announced that its supercharger manufacturing factory in Shanghai has gone into operation less than half a year after the project was officially launched in August 2020. Until now, Tesla compressors used in China were all imported from the United States.
The company puts the cost of building the 5,000-square-meter facility at 42 million yuan (about $6.5 million). In the initial phase, about 10,000 compressors, mainly the V3 model, will be produced annually. According to Tesla, the V3- Supercharger will give vehicles a range of 250 km after a charging time of just 15 minutes. To date, Tesla has opened more than 730 charging stations across China.
Tesla expects that the opening of its Chinese Supercharger facility will help popularize its V3 Supercharger in the country.
