Tesla’s Newest V3 Supercharger Can Charge 1,500 Vehicles A Day

The new Tesla Supercharger V3 outfitted with a solar array system marks a step forward in Tesla's mission for a truly sustainable vehicle ecosystem.

With solar panels overhead and Tesla Powerpacks onsite to store their energy, Tesla is hoping to lean less on the grid and much more on renewables.

There are some installed already, but full rollout really needs Supercharger V3 and Powerpack V2, plus SolarCity. Once plugged in and operating at the peak, a Model 3 will go up to 18 miles of range with 15 minutes of charging. At the peak rate of 250 kW, the station can only charge the Model 3 Long Range variant.

Since then, the automaker has added some V3 Superchargers to existing stations. That is until now.

Trump. "We've asked her to clarify how her testimony was truthful given what the court filings reveal", Nadler said. Doug Collins, said his individuals will be asking questions that aim to verify what's in the picture.


The key to this new charging station is the use of V3 Superchargers, which were first announced back in March. If the batteries aren't sufficiently charged before the trip, cars from other companies run the risk to be stuck more due to less access to fuel stations. If you could harness the energy from something that is outputting a near limitless supply of it (i.e. the sun), why would you not?

The new V3 Supercharger, which supports a peak rate of up to 250 kilowatts, is created to dramatically cut charging times for its electric vehicles. That is exactly the spiel that Tesla is making in announcing its latest V3 Supercharger station right on Vegas strip to power over 1,500 Tesla cars. However, as we move ahead with time, the number of electric cars on the road is only going to increase. They will also experience faster charging at the station because it doesn't allow power-sharing.

One of the more prescient and impactful decisions Tesla made early on was to roll out a network of Supercharger stations at strategic locations across the United States and in other countries where the company had a significant presence.
