Tesla's V3 Supercharger cuts down charging times by half

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

The V3 charging system will initially be available for only the Model 3.

Tesla yesterday opened its first "public beta" V3 charging site in Fremont, California. The 1 megawatt power cabinet supports a charge rate up to 250-kw per vehicle. 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.

Unveiled on Wednesday, the carmaker said in a blog post that the new V3 Supercharger will boast charging rates of up to 250 kW.

Tesla has introduced a new Supercharger that will cut charging times in half.

In addition, Tesla is also rolling out a new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup.

In more practical terms, Tesla says this will add up to 75 miles of range in just 5 minutes, more than enough for an average day's commuting in less time than it would take you to run in and use the restroom. Tesla says it will also soon be "unlocking" the 145-kw potential that many of its existing V2 Superchargers have always been capable of. 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". Owners of Models S and X will have to wait for software updates in the coming months before being able to benefit from these 250kW stations.

The electric vehicle firm's V3 Supercharger system is built on an entirely new architecture, with a 1MW power cabinet that can charge at up to 250kW per auto.

Your Tesla when charging at a V3 Supercharger will indicate you're at a "high-usage Supercharger station" and note only a max battery charge of 80% is available.

Also new in a firmware update (2019.7.11) for Model 3 owners is "Summon with Key Fob", which lets owners "move your Model 3 in and out of a parking space from outside the auto using a paired key fob".
