Tesla Motors is making steady progress getting electric-vehicle charging stations installed throughout China's largest cities, according to Teslarati. The advances spell good news for the California-based electric-vehicle maker, which has tried to get a bigger foothold in China. With decidedly mixed results.

While Tesla doesn't publish sales numbers of its Model S in China (heck, the company doesn't break out numbers for any particular country), some publications have reported that the company has had trouble gaining momentum because of the lack of publicly available plug-in vehicle charging stations. But Teslarati says Tesla is addressing that issue by installing both "regular" destination chargers and high-powered Superchargers.

In fact, a cursory look at Tesla's Supercharger website shows that there are about 30 destination chargers in and around both Beijing and Shanghai. There are about a half-dozen Superchargers in or near those two cities as well.

This could be a sign that things are looking up in China after what appeared to be a pretty rocky start. Late last year, then-Tesla China president Veronica Wu stepped away from the company after less than a year on the job. She followed the relatively short term of former Bentley China executive Kingston Chang.
