Tesla installing Supercharger V3 at LA Design Center ahead of Model Y event

Tesla is installing a number of Supercharger V3 stations at the LA Design Center Before the Forthcoming Model Y unveiling event this coming Thursday.  

Photos taken of the continuing buildout show that the new charging stalls are replacing a bank of current V2 Superchargers. The majority of the area is closed off, and sources knowledgeable about the continuing construction have told Teslarati the chargers being built at the Design Center are indeed V3 stalls.

The existence of the new liquid-cooled chargers will probably play a part in the upcoming Model Y unveiling event. Just like the Model 3, Model Y components which will be employed by the business in test drives during the launch will probably be able to support Supercharger V3’s 250 kW power output and charge at 1000 miles per hour.

Tesla’s third-generation, high-power charger for long distance was launched last week, with the business pleasantly surprising the electric automobile community with a new charging infrastructure’s specs. The first channel, installed at the firm ’s Fremont-based Supercharger channel on Kato road, is just one of several which Tesla will be installing throughout California. Supercharger V3 channels also boast a remarkable improvement over V2 in the way that they no longer have to split power with neighboring vehicles.

“Supercharger channels with V3 hardware are intended to enable any owner to charge at the full power their battery can take — no longer dividing power with another vehicle connected to a cabinet. This combination of high peak power and committed vehicle power allocation throughout the site lets you charge in half the time,” notes Tesla from the most recent over-the-air software update to owners within their Early Access Program.

This contributes to faster charging times for Tesla owners, with the firm estimating that around 75 miles of range could be replenished in only five minutes. This makes it much easier for members of the Tesla community to experience long trips, as their stops will be shorter with the V3 in place. The faster charging speed also allows more vehicles to be charged per site, which helps the company support an ever-growing fleet. With high-volume vehicles like the 35,000 Model 3 entering the image, the benefits of V3’s rate will probably become evident.

Supercharger V3 is seeing a first rollout today, and reports from the Tesla community point to the business not retrofitting its current network with V3 hardware. This does not imply that there’ll be no improvements to the current Superchargers, as Tesla has declared it will be releasing 145kW charge rates at over 12,000 V2 channels throughout the world within the coming weeks.
