Building an electric vehicle charging station is not a simple task. And the task becomes even harder if you’re planning to build a network of charging stations around the world. According to a UBS report published in early 2017, the cost to build a supercharging station is a cool $250,
Tesla has agreed to source battery cells for the Model 3 cars it makes at Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai from LG Chem. The cells will be made in China. CATL and Panasonic may also provide battery cells in the future.

It seems like LG Chem has battery contracts with every single automaker (it might be more like 60%). SK Innovation and Samsung SDI, medium-sized battery producers, also call Korea home.
