Far East Organization announced that Orchard Central’s Level 9 car park has been installed with three Tesla V3 Superchargers, making it Tesla’s first supercharger station within Singapore and Southeast Asia.
In a release, Far East Organization said the shopping mall’s strategic location within the Orchard Road shopping belt makes it a prime site for Tesla’s first supercharger station within the city.
It also noted that Orchard Central is the latest addition to Tesla’s growing list of more than 2,500 supercharger stations with more than 25,000 superchargers across the world.
Compatible only with Tesla model vehicles, the three Tesla V3 Superchargers at Orchard Central takes the total number of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at Far East Organization properties to eight.
