CNEVPOST reported that the significant milestone was announced by Tesla in a Weibo post honoring the Supercharger network’s 10th anniversary of opening worldwide.
In 2014, it opened its first Supercharger station on the Chinese mainland in Jinqiao, Shanghai.
According to the company, the global Tesla Supercharger network now offers over 35,000 Superchargers and covers 46 countries since 2012.
In retrospect, Tesla installed its first Supercharger worldwide in September 2012. Remarkably, the number of Superchargers reached 10,000 in June 2018.
In November 2020, Tesla hit 20,000 Superchargers. It had 10,000 more in November 2021, totaling up to 30,000 Superchargers.
On June 10, Tesla’s 35,000th Supercharger worldwide was installed at one of its service centers in Wuhan, Hubei province, central China, it previously said on Weibo.
Furthermore, Tesla reported on August 30 that it had achieved 100 Supercharger stations in Beijing, providing 890 Superchargers.
At the time, Zhang Lina was Tesla’s head of development and operations for the Supercharger network in China. Zhang Lina stated at a conference that Tesla would probably allow non-tesla vehicles to use its charging infrastructure.
On September 7, Tesla stated that the Guangdong province in southern China had its 200th Supercharger station in service.
On September 9, Tesla announced that Yiyang, in the province of Hunan, had become the site of the 9,000th Supercharger on the Chinese mainland.
Finally, Tesla announced in a Weibo post today that in addition to over 1,300 Superchargers, the Chinese mainland is home to more than 700 destination charging stations, providing a total of over 1,800 charging stations.
During the Chinese New Year holiday from January 31 to February 6, the Elon Musk-led company’s expanding charging network delivered more than 2.14 million services.
With more than 30,000 superchargers installed worldwide, Tesla has expanded its accessibility in the United States, Europe, and China. Since November last year, the company has allowed all-electric vehicles access to its global supercharger network, as per Benzinga.
For Tesla, China is a crucial market. Over half of the world’s electric vehicle volumes were produced at the company’s Giga Shanghai facility last year, which also serves as its export hub.
