Tesla plans to expand the coverage of its V3 supercharging piles in the second half of this year, and newly set up 4,000 supercharging piles in China (including V3 and V2 supercharging piles) by the end of this year, according to a Thursday report from China.com.cn.

The goal will not be changed despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a person in charge of Tesla said in the report.

At present, Tesla has nearly 2,500 supercharging piles and 2,400 destination charging piles in China. The 4,000-pile goal will see a 60 percent surge of its overall supercharging piles in China, the report said.

Launched in 2019, Tesla's V3 supercharging supports peak rates of up to 250 kilowatts per car, doubling from the 120 kW of V2 supercharging piles. At this V3 peak rate, a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover around 120 kilometers of charge in 5 minutes, according to Tesla's official website.
