The tweaks are the American electric automaker’s latest effort to grow business in China, its second-largest market, where sales topped 120,000 units last year. Tesla is still ramping up production at its 42 million yuan ($6.5 million) factory on the outskirts of Shanghai, where it targets eventually to make as many as 10,000 supercharger poles annually.

China aims to boost electric vehicle sales this year by building more EV charging stations and battery-swapping facilities. Industry regulators expect EVs to account for 20% of total new car sales by 2025, up from 5% in 2020.
