This week, Tesla China hit a significant milestone by installing their 7,000th Supercharger stall on the Chinese mainland.
The 7,000th Supercharger comes just seven years after the first one went online in Shanghai, the company announced via its Weibo account.
Tesla China has focused on expanding the Supercharger network broadly across the country to gain a foothold. In August, the company surpassed 900 Supercharging stations and is in over 300 cities on the mainland.
The company’s Shanghai-based Supercharger factory launched in August 2020 and is pumping out units to support the rapid growth of the network. In coordination with Giga Shanghai, Tesla’s factories are completing impressive numbers for both vehicles and Superchargers off the line.
Although the company continues to dominate the Chinese EV market, domestic companies like Nio and Xpeng Motors have started to cut away from the company’s monopoly. However, the company continues to move units, with wholesale sales of over 194,000 year-to-date, reports Gasgoo.
