Charging facilities are vital to the promotion of electric cars, with range anxiety one of the main reasons people don’t want to switch away from gasoline vehicles.
The route covers nine cities, starting from the eastern coastal hub of Zhoushan and stretching to the western town of Horgos, bordering Kazakhstan. It loosely follows the same path as the legendary Silk Road, a network of trade routes central to economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions for centuries.

China, the world’s biggest electric car market, is critical to Tesla; they have a factory in Shanghai and sell thousands of cars every month. The California-based company has already set up around 840 charging stations in China and more than 65,000 supercharging poles covering over 310 cities.
Now there will be one charging station every 100 kilometers to 300 kilometers along the Silk Road, and drivers can charge their cars to run for up to 250 kilometers in a single go in just 15 minutes if weather conditions are supportive.
