To date, Tesla has opened more than 1,000 Supercharger stations in the Chinese mainland with more than 8,000 Superchargers, the company announced today on Weibo.
Tesla also has more than 700 destination charging stations in the Chinese mainland, offering more than 1,750 destination charging piles. Its charging network covers more than 360 cities across China, the company said.
Tesla said on November 13 that it added 49 new Supercharger stations in the Chinese mainland in October, including 329 supercharging piles across 31 cities.
According to data released last week by the China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance (EVCIPA), its members reported a total of 1,062,000 public charging piles as of October 2021.
As of October, there were 12 charging facility operators with more than 10,000 charging piles, with the top three being Star Charge's 239,000, Teld's 232,000 and State Grid's 196,000.
Tesla now has more than 30,000 Superchargers open worldwide, with about a quarter of them in China.
In a conference call following its third-quarter earnings announcement on October 20, Tesla said the company's charging network has doubled in the past 18 months and plans to triple it over the next two years.
The company has recently opened some of its Supercharger stations in the Netherlands to non-Tesla-branded electric vehicles.
In an interview with local media outlet thepaper.cn earlier this week, Tesla Global Vice President Grace Tao said that Tesla is preparing to open Tesla Superchargers to other brands of electric vehicles in China.
The project is still undergoing technical evaluation to ensure consumer experience and safety, Tao said.
