New Tesla Supercharger can give 1000 miles of charge per hour

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

"With these significant technical improvements, we anticipate the typical charging time at a V3 Supercharger will drop to around 15 minutes".

According to a blog post, the Supercharger V3 can juice up a Tesla Model 3 Long Range with enough power to travel 75 miles in just five minutes at peak efficiency.

That's not all, Tesla, in a bid to further decrease the average time spent on charging station, will release a software update with "On-Route Battery Warmup" feature to its cars.

V3 Superchargers use a new charging architecture with a 1MW power cabinet that allows for peak charging rates of 250kW per vehicle. It uses similar tech to Tesla's Powerpack. Thanks to some other changes Tesla is making to charging on the vehicle software side, the process may be even faster than that.

Tesla plans to be able to recharge twice as many cars each day by the end of 2019. Tesla will also unlock the 145kW charge rate for its 12,000 V2 Superchargers over the coming weeks.




This system helps Tesla achieve 50 percent faster charging times with V3 chargers and 25 percent faster times for charging a vehicle on an older V2 Supercharger on average.

Tesla says that only the Model 3 will be updated to support the maximum charge rate of 250 kW, at least for now.

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. The first V3 Supercharger sites in Europe and Asia are due in the final quarter of the year.

Power is delivered to the vehicle via a new liquid-cooled cable design that Tesla claims is actually lighter and more flexible than the current air-cooled cable. Said another way, the 15 minutes I spent at a Tesla urban Supercharger operating at 72 kW this afternoon would have given me a almost complete charge instead of the 72 miles of range that it added to my battery.
