As a three-year in a row participant to the China International Fair for Trade in Services, Tesla Inc shared its development experience in boosting efficiency and environmental protection during an exclusive interview with China Daily Website.

Users of Tesla China have covered more than 2.8 billion kilometers driving distances through Tesla charging networks in the first half of the year, that's about 70,000 times around the earth, according to Li Haolin, sales manager of Tesla Beijing. Resulting in cutting carbon dioxide by more than 650,000 tons, these travels are equivalent to planting more than 1.3 million hectares of forest.

In a bid to reduce the carbon emission of raw materials and parts in the transportation process and maximize its local industrial clusters, the localization rate of Tesla's auto parts has exceeded 95 percent, Li added.

The company has built over 1,200 supercharging sites and nearly 9,000 supercharging pillars in the Chinese mainland by August 2022, along with more than 700 destination charging sites and 1,800 destination charging pillars.

Beijing, the host of the 2022 CIFTIS, has seen over 100 supercharging sites built by Tesla within the city; the company is also aiming to make more breakthroughs in the city and the whole country to deeply engage in the development and upgrading of China's new energy industry, said Zhang Lina, senior manager of Tesla Supercharger Development and Operation.
