Tesla's third generation Supercharger cuts down charging times by half

Tesla's third generation Supercharger cuts down charging times by half

Posting on the Tesla blog, Tesla explains that V3 Supercharging requires a brand new 1MW power cabinet be installed at Supercharging locations. The new V3 Supercharger standard represents a step change improvement in charging capabilities.

V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging. It's called the V3 Supercharger, and it can support up to 250kW per vehicle, from a cabinet that's rated at 1MW. Once operational, it allows an electric vehicle to recharge at up to 250kW, which translates to 1,000 miles per hour, or 75 miles of charge in just five minutes.

The first videos of Tesla's next-generation Supercharger V3 have been shared online, providing an initial glimpse at how the next-generation charging solution works, and the benefits it carries. Tesla says this will reduce average charging times by 25%.

"This combination of higher peak power with V3, dedicated vehicle power allocation across Supercharger sites, and On-Route Battery Warmup enables customers to charge in half the time and Tesla to serve more than twice the number of customers per hour", explains Tesla.

If only there were some way of showing us what might happen and giving us a taste for what is going to go on. That's complicated because I find the best battle sequences are when you have a strong point of view.

As for older charging infrastructure, there are now over 12,000 V2 Superchargers, which will be unlocked for 145kW charge rates in the coming weeks. At launch, only Model 3 owners will be able to use V3 Supercharging.

However, since Tesla's Fremont, CA Supercharger is the only so-equipped charging station in the United States so far, chances are those batteries will already be rolling at pretty moderate temps.

Additionally, the new design means that any Tesla plugging into it should be able to charge at the full 250kW; the current Superchargers often supply cars with much less than their maximum 120kW if the stalls are full as the chargers have to split the available power as we discovered in our recent Model 3 test. This is most likely to protect your battery, according to @tesla_raj, who stopped by Tesla's unveiling event tonight in Fremont, California.

The good news for Tesla owners doesn't end there, though. "Press the front or rear trunk button on the key fob to move the auto foward and reverse respectively".
