In August last year, Tesla launched a supercharger factory in Shanghai, China.

The goal of the new factory was to accelerate the production of the company's Supercharger V3 "quick chargers", which are capable of charging the its in just 15 minutes.

As of last Wednesday (just 6-months later), Tesla announced that the plant is now fully operational.

“With the strong support of the Shanghai municipal governments and Tesla’s rapid efforts, Tesla’s Shanghai supercharger production plant is officially completed and put into operation. This signifies our industry-leading V3 Superchargers will start rolling off the plant assembly line,” Tesla mentioned on their official Weibo account.

Tesla's new plant costs a whopping 42 million yuan ($6.5 million) to build, and is capable of producing over 10,000 superchargers per year.

Prior to this, all superchargers had to be imported from the United States.

There are currently over 730 Tesla charging stations in China, with over 410 supercharging stations being built in 2020 alone (180 of them are V3 Superchargers).

Just 2 weeks ago, Tesla delivered its first batch of Shanghai-made Model Y, available to customers in China.

The company became the world's most valuable carmaker last year, with Elon Musk surpassing Amazon's Jeff Bezos as the world's richest person.

CEO Elon Musk also said during the company’s Q4 2020 earnings call last week that Tesla is the "best-selling electric carmaker in China".

“We currently are winning that — we are currently the leader in the Chinese EV market. So I think we’re mostly doing something right if we’re the best-selling electric car in China,” Musk said.
