Tesla will upgrade Superchargers to faster V3

Tesla's Third Generation Supercharger Cuts Down Charging Times by Half

V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging. In comparison, Tesla's V2 Superchargers have peak rates of ~120 kW per vehicle. A Model 3 Long Range operating at its most efficient can recover 75 miles in just 5 minutes, according to Tesla. Combined with other improvements we're announcing today, V3 Supercharging will ultimately cut the amount of time customers spend charging by an average of 50%, as modeled on our fleet data.

Every four chargers will be fed off of a single 1,000 kW power cabinet, which means owners will no longer have to concern themselves with which charging pair they are plugging into when charging on a V3 Supercharger.

Tesla says the V3 stations will give full charging power to any owner, without splitting power with the next vehicle also at the station at the same time - and as a result, a typical charge time can drop to around 15 minutes.

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.

She has since reversed course, however, and now says that the reason her family is no longer together is because of Thompson. She is the sole owner of the brand Kylie Cosmetics. "Khloe and Tristan are still communicating and always will.

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. Although the rates are initially for Model 3, the company will boost Model S and Model X speeds "in the coming months".

The new V3 stations will charge up vehicles at 250 kW of power, making Tesla's vehicles the fastest charging vehicles in the world! Stations' power will no longer be shared between Teslas, which could slow down charging rates, but each vehicle will have its own dedicated power supply.

The good news for Tesla owners doesn't end there, though.

Tesla further explains, "to operate Summon with key fob, Require Continuous Press must be set to NO under controls Autopilot Customize Summon".
