The 6,000th Tesla Supercharger in the Chinese mainland has come online, reaching a new milestone, the company announced today.

Tesla now has 760 Supercharging stations in the mainland, covering more than 300 cities.

On December 31, Tesla opened the world’s largest Supercharging station, the 72-pile Shanghai Jing’an International Center Supercharging station, for operation.

It is located across the Huangpu River from the previously largest Supercharging station in the world, the Dingxiang International Center in Pudong, which serves customers in Pudong and Puxi.

In early 2020, Tesla began a massive Supercharging station construction program in China.

By the end of 2020, Tesla had completed more than 620 Supercharging stations in China, with 5,000 Superchargers and a charging network covering more than 290 cities.

Tesla is also investing in a Supercharger production facility in Shanghai, which opened on Feb. 3 and brought the company’s third-generation Supercharger (V3) off the assembly line. This comes less than six months after the project was launched in August 2020.

With an investment of about 42 million yuan and an area of nearly 5,000 square meters, the factory integrates R&D and production.

It has an initial planned annual capacity of 10,000 Superchargers and is primarily a V3 charging pile, which is Tesla’s most advanced charging pile to date and can replenish up to 250 kilometers of range in 15 minutes of charging.
