Tesla Signs Deal With China Unicom on Charging Points

Tesla Motors Inc., the electric automaker led by billionaire Elon Musk, will work with China’s second-largest mobile-phone company to set up charging points for its vehicles.

Tesla signed an agreement today with China United Network Communications Corp. to build 400 charging points in 120 Chinese cities at China Unicom outlets, Tesla spokeswoman Peggy Yang said today in a phone interview. The two companies will also build 20 supercharging stations that work as much as 16 times faster, she said.
