New Tesla Supercharger can give 1000 miles of charge per hour

New Tesla Supercharger can give 1000 miles of charge per hour

The first beta test V3 chargers are now in operation in California, near Tesla's headquarters, and work on the first full sites will begin in April. V3 Supercharging is coming to Europe towards the end of 2019. It's called the V3 Supercharger, and it can support up to 250kW per vehicle, from a cabinet that's rated at 1MW.

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 company says with just 5 minutes of charging, you can get up to 75 miles, or 120 kilometres.

A new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup, means as you set your destination for a Supercharger, your battery will warm itself up, to prepare itself for optimum charging, so you spend less time waiting for a charge, by 25%.

The company advertises the rate as "1,000 miles per hour", meaning it is capable of adding 1,000 miles of range in just one hour.




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.

The V3 Superchargers will come to USA sites in Q2 and Q3 this year, with Asia-Pacific and Europe to follow in Q4. The Model Y SUV, due to be revealed next week, will likely also be able to use the system because it shares technical elements with the Model 3 saloon. Tesla says software upgrades are due in the near future to increase charging speeds for Model S and Model X machines. More chargers will begin rolling out in April for North America. The new Superchargers are created to charge at the full power the car's battery can handle, so owners no longer have to share power with the vehicle in the next stall.

The new faster stations, the logic improvements, and the increase in speed on the V2 Supercharging network translates to less time spent charging and higher throughput at the new V3 Superchargers.

For now, Tesla has only installed its preview Supercharger V3s in Fremont, California and will only make them available to members of its early access program.
