The station is located in the Jing’an International Center in the key business and commercial area of Shanghai. According to the photos, 72 locations use V2 chargers up to 150 kW, while 56 Californian locations are using 250 kW V3 chargers. This means that Shanghai drivers will have to wait a little longer for charging.
Tesla has shipped more than 20,000 locally produced electric vehicles to China, making it a key market. In November, the company produced 23,000 electric vehicles at its Shanghai plant. Some of the machines are sold in China, while others are exported to Europe and other markets.
