As you know Tesla produced new Model 3 and this electric car can be charge with 250 kW. Also Tesla launched new Supercharger V3. This supercharger can supply 255kW.
One of the Tesla owners tested this superchargers. According to this owners ” the Model 3 state-of-charge (SOC) increased from 9% to 90% in just 35 minutes! Initial charging power was 255 kW.
“It quickly jumped to 255kW just seconds with plugged in. Stayed for 15% and tamper kicked in. after just 4 minutes and SoC reached 23%, the power reduced to 177kW. then goes down like last time.”
And also more details here;
- 9% – 23% in just 4 minutes (average 11 miles/minute or 651 mph)
- 9% – 50% = 12 minutes (average of 10.6 miles/minute or 636 mph)
- 9% – 60% = 15 minutes (average of 10.5 miles/minute or 632 mph)
- 9% – 70% = 19 minutes (average of 10 miles/minute or 600 mph)
- 9% – 80% = 25 minutes (average of 8.8 miles/minute or 528 mph)
- 9% – 90% = 35 minutes (average of 7.2 miles/minute or 430 mph)
For factory Model 3 and Model S, the fast charging feature is not provided. However, this feature can be integrated into the vehicle with the software update. However, only 145 kW can be charged.
- New architecture of chargers
- 1 MW power cabinet, which can support up to 250 kW per car (four stalls per power cabinet)
- no power sharing between the Superchargers (previously two stalls shared 120 kW of power)
- cuts charging time by up to 50% (when battery is warm up)
- expected typical charging time to drop to around 15 minutes
- expected to serve more than twice the number of customers per hour (than V2)
The V3 launch was accompanied with new On-Route Battery Warmup feature:
“New Supercharging infrastructure isn’t the only way we are improving our customers’ charging experience. Beginning this week, Tesla is rolling out a new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup. Now, whenever you navigate to a Supercharger station, your vehicle will intelligently heat the battery to ensure you arrive at the optimal temperature to charge, reducing average charge times for owners by 25%.”
