Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2014

In order to make sure that sales in China will bring enough money, Tesla Motors announced that it signed an agreement with China United Network Communications Corp. As a result, the two companies will build 400 charging points in 120 Chinese cities at China Unicom Outlets. In addition, 20 supercharging stations will be built, according to Tesla spokeswoman Peggy Yang.

Furthermore, Tesla also signed agreements with China Yantai Holdings and Soho China, two real-estate developers and will install charging points at their properties located around the country.

According to the agreement, Tesla Motors will provide equipment for the charging stations, while China’s second-largest mobile-phone company a.k.a. China United Network Communications Corp. will provide the land.

No words about the costs of these operations, but the good news is that Tesla customers will charge their vehicles for free at these stations.

For those who don’t know, BMW is also building a public charging network as it needs to boost sales of its electric vehicles such as the i3 or the i8 plug-in hybrid supercar. According to some sources, China is considering a $16 billion investment to build charging facilities and boost the sales of clean vehicles.
