    Building what he calls China's first "electric vehicle charging road," Yi Zong planted recharging stations in 16 cities between Beijing and Guangzhou—and paid for the entire 5,750-kilometer (3,573-mile) route out of his own pocket.

    Wow, Zapped, that is one dedicated customer to have bought 15 charging stations and give them free to hotels along a route. I wonder if they were Tesla HPWCs? IIRC, I don't think Tesla has released the HPWC in China yet, so they most likely be 40 Amp units...

    Chinese car is American spec? If so same HPWC I guess. Japan also uses American HPWC.

    Pretty rapid build out. The Japan plan looks impressive too.

    No, China and Hong Kong use the same as in Europe I think. Japan and USA are both on 110V but Asia excluding Japan, Europe and Australia use 230-240 V. Europe and China will get HPWC in this summer (mid 2015) according to Teslas site.
