Tesla opens second V3 supercharging location in Taiwan
Taipei, July 3 (CNA) Electric vehicle maker Tesla announced on Friday the opening of its second V3 supercharging facility in Taiwan in the southern city of Tainan, just a few days after the first such facility opened in Taipei.
The new charging facility, which has eight charging stalls, is located at Tainan Art Museum's second building and is the largest in the country, as the one at Taipei's National Taiwan University, which started operating on June 29, only has three charging stalls.
While the Tainan facility is the company's 19th supercharging facility in Taiwan, the V3 charging stall, first unveiled in 2019, is the latest fast charging facility. It charges cars at a peak rate of 250 kilowatt (kW), compared to the earlier generation V2 stall which has a rate of 145kW, according to Tesla.
During the Taipei International Auto Show in December, Tesla announced it planned to increase its total number of supercharging facilities in Taiwan to 25 in 2020.
According to Tesla's statement during the auto show, it sold nearly 2,500 of its latest Model 3 vehicles in Taiwan from August to December 2019.
