Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging

Tesla promises to halve charging time with V3 Supercharging Tesla's new Superchargers add up to 1,000 miles per hour

However, since Tesla's Fremont, CA Supercharger is the only so-equipped charging station in the U.S. so far, chances are those batteries will already be rolling at pretty moderate temps. If that doesn't sound like the realization of a long-term plan to convince the world of the supremacy of electric vehicles, I don't know what would be.

V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging.

V3 Supercharging is based on a new 1MW power cabinet, which supports peak rates of up to 250kW per auto, up from earlier 120kW.

Core to the new high-speed performance is a new liquid-cooled cable that translates to a more flexible and easier to use cable.

Pakistan launches crackdown on militants, detains suspects
After failing to adequately convince the FATF, Pakistan is now required to complete actions it has to take by the May timeline. A statement from the ministry of Interior said the decision was made at a high-level meeting on Monday.

The push will take Tesla's network to delivering 250 kilowatts, up from 120 kw as more fast-charging infrastructure is built. The new feature will pre-heat the battery pack of the vehicle when navigating to a Supercharger station, reducing the average charge time by 25 percent. Because this is just a software hack, the fix can be rolled out to the Model S and X as well. Tesla says that "a$3 t this rate, a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover up to 75 miles of charge in 5 minutes and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour". Tesla will also unlock the 145kW charge rate for its 12,000 V2 Superchargers over the coming weeks. 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.

As for older charging infrastructure, there are now over 12,000 V2 Superchargers, which will be unlocked for 145kW charge rates in the coming weeks. Design-wise, V3 Superchargers look the same as V2, but come with a thicker charging cable. This is most likely to protect your battery, according to @tesla_raj, who stopped by Tesla's unveiling event tonight in Fremont, California.

The first V3 Beta site is now open in the Californian Bay Area, also known as the Tesla heartland. After rolling out in North America, the technology will reach Europe and the Asia-Pacific region in the fourth quarter, the company said.
