Although there are 72 stations in the station located at the central point called Jing’an International Center, it has been announced that these stations are V2 versions. That is, they have a lower charging rate than the V3 stations in Fresno. By the way, let’s also mention that Tesla Model 3 and Y also support V3 charging.
