Tesla V3 Supercharging: 250kW charge stations announced

Tesla v3 supercharging

At its peak, V3 can charge at rates of 1,000 miles per hour, and can top up a Model 3 Long Range with 75 miles of charge in five minutes.

Tesla has launched its third-generation charging technology, known as Supercharger V3.

Tesla says that only the Model 3 will be updated to support the maximum charge rate of 250 kW, at least for now. Because the rollout requires new hardware, Tesla says that it will help satisfy owners by increasing the charge rate on its existing Supercharger v2 infrastructure by about 20 percent.

To make better use of the Supercharger network, Tesla says it will also update its cars with a new feature that begins to prewarm their batteries when they approach a Supercharger, similar to the prewarming that occurs in some models when you use Ludicrous mode.

"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", the company said. A new 1MW power cabinet with a similar design to our utility-scale products supports peak rates of up to 250kW per auto. Now, Tesla says, its cars will adjust the temperature of the battery pack as the vehicle approaches the Supercharger to ensure optimal current flow.

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

However, it will take a while for V3 to come online: The first V3 Supercharging site is a beta-test location in the Bay Area, available for Tesla's Early Access customers, and the first non-beta location will break ground next month.

As Tesla's newest vehicle, the Model 3 is already created to suck in juice from the more powerful V3 Superchargers. Although the rates are initially for Model 3, the company will boost Model S and Model X speeds "in the coming months".

Once update, if the Tesla auto owner is on its way to the nearest Supercharger stations, the vehicle will intelligently heat the battery.
