Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

Tesla's new Superchargers add up to 1,000 miles per hour

A new 1-megawatt charge cabinet is also added to locations in order to split the 250 kW charge between four vehicles simultaneously. That's not the miles per hour you see on the speedometer, but the rate at which the auto will gain range when being fast-charged.

Don't call Tesla's old charging cable (right) fat, but it does look a bit husky next to the new, liquid-cooled model (left). Supercharger V3 supports peak rates of up to 250 kW per vehicle, allowing a auto like the Long Range Model 3 to replenish 75 miles of its range in just 5 minutes.

He said that official engagements were only meant to ensure she had the full facts on the impact of a potential conviction. Trudeau thanked Philpott for her service in a short statement that said he would have more to say later in Toronto.


Power is delivered to the auto via a new liquid-cooled cable design that Tesla claims is actually lighter and more flexible than the current air-cooled cable. Tesla says that preconditioning the battery on the way to the Supercharging station will reduce the average charge time by 25%. In comparison, Tesla's V2 Superchargers have peak rates of ~120 kW per vehicle.

Tesla Inc.is updating its charging network to halve typical wait times as the Model 3 fleet grows larger and rivals like Porsche ready their own powerful infrastructure.

The fix is included in Chrome 72.0.3626.121 for Android and desktop platforms. But it's worth checking, and downloading the update manually if necessary.


In the coming weeks, over 12,000 existing V2 Superchargers will get 145kW charge rates, up from 120kW. Our first non-beta V3 Supercharger site will break ground next month, with North American sites ramping in Q2 and Q3 before coming to Europe and Asia-Pacific in Q4, "Tesla said in a statement". Tesla says software upgrades are due in the near future to increase charging speeds for Model S and Model X machines. The company says that thousands of new Superchargers will come online in 2019; it doesn't stipulate that all of these will be V3 Superchargers, but it would be unlike Tesla not to deliver its most advanced version.

This is good news for Tesla owners, but also for Tesla's network because it means cars will spend on average 50 percent less time recharging, meaning every Supercharging location can handle more cars every day.
