Tesla continues to rapidly expand Supercharger network in China, adding 40 stations in August

Tesla is not slowing down with their plans to expand the Supercharger network in China, adding 40 new stations across the country in August alone.

According to a post on the official Weibo account of Tesla China the 40 new stations were built in 25 different cities, adding a total of 168 stalls. Some of the cities with these new Superchargers include Chengdu, Chongqing, Zunyi, Wuhan, Nantong, and Shanghai.

That translates to Tesla adding 1.29 new stations every day in the 31-day month, slightly below the 48 Superchargers the company was able to add in China in July.

Tesla also confirmed all of the new stations were V3 Superchargers that can offer charging speeds up to 250kW.

This rapid growth has been possible thanks to the company’s new Supercharger factory in China. The facility was completed in July 2021 and can build up to 10,000 Superchargers every year.

With the impressive rate of new Superchargers being built over the last few months, Tesla’s network in China has now grown to include more than 1,300 stations with more than 9,000 stalls across the country.

There are also more than 1,800 Destinations chargers in more than 380 cities and regions according to Tesla China, allowing owners to plug in and receive a charge at Level 2 charging speeds.
