Tesla’s set to launch its 10,000th Supercharger stall in mainland China on December 26, according to a statement from the automaker on Weibo on Thursday (via CnEVPost).

“Here’s what you know: EV charging piles are everywhere. And here’s what you don’t know: there are far more charging facilities laid out than you think,” Tesla wrote in the post. “While fuel cars can only replenish their energy at gas stations, EVs can charge at home, at work, at the mall, and at scenic spots.”

“With the completion of the 10,000th charger of Tesla’s Supercharger network in the Chinese mainland just around the corner, and with such a dense and diverse network layout, what’s the difficulty of charging.”

The automaker didn’t share any other details, but local publication Yiche said the 10,000th station would become operational under the Oriental Pearl TV Tower in Shanghai.

Tesla had established 1,110 Supercharger stations across mainland China as of April, with over 8,500 individual charging stalls. Additionally, the automaker had deployed 700 destination charging stations with over 1,800 individual stalls.

The news comes just a month after Tesla reached its millionth car made at Gigafactory Shanghai, and ahead of the company’s plans to pause Model Y production at the end of this month.
