Featuring a completely new architecture that makes use of a 1MW power cabinet supporting peak rates of up to 250kW per car. This means that you’ll be recover up to 75-miles of charge in 5-minutes on a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency, and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour. This cuts the time spent charging by an average of 50%, according to their test data. Read more for a video and additional information.
V3 Supercharger stations are designed to enable any Tesla owner to charge their vehicle at the full power their battery can take, which means no more splitting power with a car in the stall next to you, dropping average charging time to around 15 minutes. That’s not all, Tesla is rolling out a new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup this week, which intelligently heats the battery of your vehicle before arriving at a Supercharger to ensure optimal charge temperature, thus reducing average charge times for owners by 25%.
