Tesla's V3 Superchargers Allow Charging at 1,000 miles per hour

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 Inc.is updating its charging network to halve typical wait times as the Model 3 fleet grows larger and rivals like Porsche ready their own powerful infrastructure. It includes entirely new hardware, including grid-connected batteries to act as a buffer to stabilize electrical loads (and reduce demand charges from utilities).

Tesla has just unveiled their new V3 Superchargers tonight, which offer faster charging for owners, capable of rates of up to 1,600 km per hour (1000 miles/hour) at their peak.

Supercharging V3 isn't as quick as CEO Elon Musk suggested when he called the 350 kw peak of CCS charging at the time "a children's toy". 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 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.

Average time charging

The company plans to increase the charging speeds of Model S and X via software updates in the coming months. More stations will follow, with North American sites ramping up in Q2 and Q3 ahead of the launch in Europe and Asia-Pacific in Q4. Tesla specifically mentions this in 2019.7.11's release notes.

V3 Supercharging is based on a new 1MW power cabinet, which supports peak rates of up to 250kW per vehicle, up from earlier 120kW. This is most likely to protect your battery, according to @tesla_raj, who stopped by Tesla's unveiling event tonight in Fremont, California.

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

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