Meanwhile, according to Tesla China, the Superchargers, and charging stations going in at the wireless provider’s retail locations will only be available for vehicles for the Model S, the older Roadster and the upcoming Model X. Vehicles coming to China, like the BMW i3 and i8, a hybrid sports car that also plugs in, and Denza will not be able to utilize the Tesla specific charging locations, calling for more charging locations to be installed by other automobile manufacturers, to meet the potential demand anticipated.
