Tesla Celebrates 100th Supercharger Station in South Korea
— Tesla Charging (@TeslaCharging) November 10, 2022
This new milestone was more than five years in the making for the all-electric automaker. South Korea’s first-ever Supercharger was installed back in May 2017 and is located in the underground car parking at Parnau Tower in Samseong-dong, Seoul.
Tesla’s 100th South Korean Supercharger is located on the 5th underground floor of the D-Tower at B5, 83-21 Wangsimni-ro, Seongsu-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul. It has nine V3 Supercharging stalls that can each deliver a peak power output of 250 kW.
Due to local regulations, Tesla has had to install all of its South Korean Superchargers within city limits, inside shopping centers, residential areas, restaurants, cafes, and near car washes. There are no Tesla Superchargers in road service areas on highways in the country.
Tesla celebrated a similar milestone in August when it hit 100 Supercharger stations in Beijing. Elon Musk’s electric vehicle (EV) company is quickly expanding its global Supercharging network. Tesla surpassed 4,000 charging locations across the globe earlier this year, and it has added many more since.
