This Chinese businessman shows his commitment to the future of electric cars by building his own Tesla charging stations.

Most Tesla owners in China agree that the electric car manufacturer has been slow in rolling out its charging stations across the country. When Zong is taking it upon himself to change that, forking out RMB730,000 (17,600, £68,900, AU25,500) — to set up about 16 Tesla charging stations sprinkled between Beijing and his home city of Guangzhou, reports Chinese investigative news site Caixin.

Zong is showing his commitment to the future of electric cars. He is said to be installing 20 charging stations spread between 62 miles and 248 miles apart. It isn’t clear where the electric charging stations are to be set up exactly.

“If we install at hotels, we can handle everything on our own and avoid dealing with property management, power companies and the government,” Zong told Caixin reporters.
