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.
A new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup, means as you set your destination for a Supercharger, your battery will warm itself up, to prepare itself for optimum charging, so you spend less time waiting for a charge, by 25%.
Through that system and the V3 Superchargers, Tesla estimates that a typical charging time at one of the units will drop to 15 minutes.
And though no commercially available battery now has the capacity, Tesla says the new Superchargers can theoretically restore 1,000 miles of range in an hour.
Unveiled on Wednesday, the carmaker said in a blog post that the new V3 Supercharger will boast charging rates of up to 250 kW.
Victoria's Secret To Close Another 53 Stores This Year
The closure in the amount of stores is historically more than three times compared to the 15 shops it shuts annually on average. Overnight, subsequent to releasing its results, the company said it would close 53 stores in North America.
Will Smith Gives Advice to Jordyn Woods After Tristan Thompson Scandal
But as a journalist at heart and a cynic by nature, I can't help but believe that most celebrity drama is created for ratings. Woods told Jada that she reached out to both sisters and offered an apology after the news of the scandal broke.
Yusuf Azhar bombed in Balakot air strike was Kandahar hijacker
Shelling across the Line of Control has occurred frequently over the past few years but airspace incidents are extremely rare. Islamabad has said it had nothing to do with the attack, and warned it will retaliate if India launches any strike.
The first videos of Tesla's next-generation Supercharger V3 have been shared online, providing an initial glimpse at how the next-generation charging solution works, and the benefits it carries.
The first V3 Supercharger site that's not a test version will break ground next month.
In the coming weeks, over 12,000 existing V2 Superchargers will get 145kW charge rates, up from 120kW.
Employing a completely new architecture, the V3 system centers around a 1MW power cabinet that can support peak charge rates of up to 250kW per auto. Tesla reckons charge times will be halved based on its own modelling of Tesla fleet data. This is most likely to protect your battery, according to @tesla_raj, who stopped by Tesla's unveiling event tonight in Fremont, California. 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. It will also increase Model S and X charging speeds via software updates over the coming months.
The good news for Tesla owners doesn't end there, though.
