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

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

The new system it calls V3 Supercharging will enable fastest charging on the market, according to Tesla.

Tesla claims that a Model 3 Long Range will now be able to recover up to 75 miles of charge in just 5 minutes, the equivalent of 1000 miles per hour.

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

The good news for Tesla owners doesn't end there, though. A new 1MW power cabinet with a similar design to our utility-scale products supports peak rates of up to 250kW per vehicle.

Tesla has launched its third-generation charging technology, known as Supercharger V3. "With these significant technical improvements, we anticipate the typical charging time at a V3 Supercharger will drop to around 15 minutes". The new feature will pre-heat the battery pack of the vehicle when navigating to a Supercharger station, reducing the average charge time by 25 percent. This superfast charging will reduce the wait for a full recharge of a auto by a 50-per cent; this is a huge time saver for people on the long inter-state drive. 145 kW is the charging rate of a current shared pair of Tesla's Superchargers, so the fix seems to be a simple software unlocking of the max speed of a single vehicle charging on a shared pair.

The company plans to increase the charging speeds of Model S and X via software updates in the coming months.

The first public beta site for the new V3 Supercharger is in Bay Area, with Tesla making it incrementally accessible to owners registered in its Early Access Program.

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.

The V3 Superchargers will come to US sites in Q2 and Q3 this year, with Asia-Pacific and Europe to follow in Q4.

Tesla says that it has 12,000 Superchargers across North America, Europe, and Asia-and that 99 percent of the USA population is covered by the charging network.
