Tesla's Latest Breakthrough Can Reduce Charge Time By 50%

Tesla

Last week, Tesla introduced the world to its brand-new 250 kW Variation 3.0 supercharger-- the fastest charging port on the market. With 1MW power cabinets that ensure that up to 4 electrical automobiles can charge from a single enclosure, these charging stations will provide a Tesla Model 3 as much as 75 miles of variety in just 5 minutes.

The brand-new development is expected to eventually reduce the time users invest charging their electric car by an average of 50 percent, as the EV maker intends to deal with one of the barriers to faster EV adoption-- charging time and charging infrastructure.

The EV maker said in a statement V3 Supercharging would make it possible for Tesla's cars “to charge faster than any other electric vehicle on the market today.”

Providing some examples of the quicker charging speed, Tesla says that 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 anticipates “the typical charging time at a V3 Supercharger will drop to around 15 minutes,” thanks to the V3 Supercharger and other technical improvements.

Tesla will be at first introducing V3 Supercharging for its highest-volume car, Version 3, and will broaden access as it assesses the results of millions of charging occasions. Related: $1 Trillion Wealth Fund To Dump All Oil Stocks

Tesla noted, “Our first non-beta V3 Supercharger site will break ground next month, with North American sites ramping in Q2 and Q3 before coming to Europe and Asia-Pacific in Q4.”

While the Supercharger is making headways, some Tesla fans began hypothesizing what a covered pickup was doing on a spotted carrier loaded with Tesla automobiles, Electrek's Fred Lambert reports.

When Elon Musk teased a Model Y reveal event on March 14, he also responded to Twitter users that the truck reveal "is later this year" which “Personally, I’m most excited by the Tesla Truck. Maybe it will be too futuristic for most people, but I love it.”

Sadly, the 250 kW battery charger it's still in beta and won't be happening to stations until next year. A somewhat improved 145 kW charger is being rolled out now and ought to get Tesla's 12,888 charging stations in 2019.
