Tesla V3 Supercharging: 250kW charge stations announced

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging Tesla's new Superchargers add up to 1,000 miles per hour

Tesla's Supercharging V3, announced last night, charges the Model 3 at a rate of up to 1,000 miles per hour (temporarily), or what Tesla says can gain you as much as 75 miles of range in five minutes. Called On-Route Battery Charging, the system begins to heat the batteries when navigating to a Supercharger station, to ensure they are at optimal charging temperature on arrival. But times change, and companies like ElectrifyAmerica and ChargePoint are rolling out new DC Fast chargers for these standards that are capable of recharging a vehicle at much higher power-350kW in the case of ElectrifyAmerica and 500kW in the case of ChargePoint.

And though no commercially available battery now has the capacity, Tesla says the new Superchargers can theoretically restore 1,000 miles of range in an hour.

In parallel to the new V3 Superchargers, Tesla will be updating its existing network of V2 Superchargers to enable a peak charging rate of 145 kW.

Tesla has unveiled its third generation Supercharger at its headquarters in Palo Alto, California, promising to cut the average charging time for drivers by 50%. Design-wise, V3 Superchargers look the same as V2, but come with a thicker charging cable.

The streaming outfit concluded by stating that " these things are not mutually exclusive ". Disney, WarnerMedia, and Comcast are all launching streaming platforms.

The new V3 stations will charge up vehicles at 250 kW of power, making Tesla's vehicles the fastest charging vehicles in the world! At launch, only Model 3 owners will be able to use V3 Supercharging. 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".

However, since Tesla's Fremont, CA Supercharger is the only so-equipped charging station in the U.S. so far, chances are those batteries will already be rolling at pretty moderate temps. Tesla says software upgrades are due in the near future to increase charging speeds for Model S and Model X machines.

The good news for Tesla owners doesn't end there, though.
