Tesla is planning a big expansion of the Supercharger network in Taiwan this year.
There are currently 25 Superchargers open in the island nation, but that number will jump to 38 with the addition of 13 new stations this year. Tesla said on Thursday it plans to build two in the Greater Taipei area, four in the area covering Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Miaoli, two in the Taichung area, two in the Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan area, and three in Kaohsiung and Pingtung.

Until last year Tesla owners in Taiwan could use any Supercharger in the country for free. In June 2020 the automaker implemented idle fees to help combat drivers staying plugged in for too long, charging drivers from NT$15 ($0.69 CAD) up to NT$30 ($1.38 CAD) per minute.
Then starting on October 15, 2020 Tesla implemented user fees, charging drivers up NT$9.70/kWh ($0.45 CAD), depending on the location and time of the day.
