Tesla introduced a new charging station Supercharger V3

Tesla held an event at its headquarters in California, where it presented the third

generation of the Supercharger charging station.

What is known

The new station is able to charge someModel 3 electric cars with a speed of 250 kW. According to the company, 5 minutes will be enough for 120 km. Unfortunately, this power will not apply to cars Model S and Model X because of the different battery design. The manufacturer will set a limit of 120 kW, but then using the software update, this threshold is planned to be raised. How exactly, is still unknown.

Together with the Supercharger V3, Tesla announced the On-Route Battery Warmup technology, which can reduce charging time by 25%, thanks to smart algorithms.

When to expect

The first new charging station has already been installed inthe city of Fremont (California), but so far only members of the Tesla "early access" program can benefit from it. Outside the US, the Supercharger V3 will appear in the fourth quarter of this year.

Recall, Tesla is now preparing for the presentation of its new electric crossover Model Y. The car will be shown next week in Los Angeles.
