Tesla will work with a Hong Hong property developer to build more charging poles at shopping malls in mainland China.

According to the China Daily, Tesla will build the public charging facilities at shopping malls operated by Hang Lung Properties in Shanghai, Tianjin, Wuxi, Dalian, Jinan and Shenyang.

Zhu Xiaotong, president of Tesla China, said the US car marker hopes to provide convenient charging services for Chinese customers in a bid to encourage more people to love their cars.

Tesla has said it will establish seven supercharging networks in major cities and popular travel destinations in China in the second half of this year.

Tesla has its second largest charging network in China (after the US) with hundreds of supercharging stations and more than 1,400 public charging poles in operation across China.

Earlier this year Tesla's China growth strategy appeared to hit a bump in the road as stock ballooned and the distribution company shed some of its staff. However, Tesla sees the Chinese market as a key long-term growth opportunity.
