Tesla most anticipated V3 supercharging is now available, and it assure users faster charging speed than its predecessor

The automobile giant has earlier promised that it would launch a third version of the supercharging, and as promised, the autonomous boss is now rolling out the V3 as promised. The V3 promises to halve the charging pace of what has been in circulation before, that is, it will eventually bring down charging times by an average of 50 percent.

The V3 is expected to be in proper use any moment soon, and with a peak charging peak going up to 250kW per car- thanks to new liquid-cooled cable design and new stations don’t have to split energy between multiple cars,  you’ll always get the fastest rate available. On the most efficient vehicles, like a Model 3 Long Range, Tesla expects they’ll get 75 miles of charge in 5 minutes, and add range at a rate of 1,000 miles per hour. Furthermore, Tesla claims that V3 Supercharging “enables our vehicles to charge faster than any other electric vehicle on the market today.” That is, at least until vehicles supporting 350kW charging, like Porsche’s Taycan and Audi’s E-Tron SUV hit the market.

The V3 is set to go public in Fremont, CA  starting from today, and hopefully, it will bump the charge rate over the next few weeks at the 12,000+ V2 Superchargers to 145kW from 120kW for V2. While this will necessary not lead to any significant changes, but the faster charging-capacity is very certain.
