After Tesla’s V3 Supercharger plant in China started production in February, the company has reportedly completed the facility entirely, as of last month.
Tesla completed construction on its Supercharger factory in Shanghai on August 20, according to a report from Beijing News shared on Tuesday (via CNEVPost). The official beginning of the construction project took place in January, and with the facility, the company expects to be able to produce up to 10,000 V3 Supercharger stall units per year.
The Supercharger fast-charging stations from Tesla are the company’s third generation of the charger, and they offer a max charging capacity of 250 kW – charging the average Model 3 to about 250 kilometers (155 miles) in about 15 minutes.

Last month, Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory stopped production for a few days due to the ongoing global chip shortage, just a few days before Tesla started delivering its Model Y Standard Range to customers in China.
The news comes ahead of Tesla’s plans to open its Supercharger network to other electric vehicles (EVs), a feature that will reportedly debut in the Netherlands before being unveiled to the rest of the world’s markets.
Tesla currently has more than 7,000 Supercharger stalls across China, and if its production targets are correct, it should be set to have around 17,000 total stalls by this time next year.
