Musk did not drop any extra details for Supercharger V3.0 in his recent tweets, though he did mention last year the next-generation chargers will have a power output between 200-250 kW, or as much as 50% higher power than Tesla’s current Superchargers.

Supercharger V3.0’s upgraded output will also allow the company to accommodate more vehicles in its charging facilities, considering that shorter recharging times will lead to stalls being open quicker for other cars. This will be an essential benefit for Tesla in the near future, as the company begins rolling out high-volume vehicles such as the $35,000 Model 3 and the upcoming Model Y, which will be anticipated to be revealed later this month.

While Tesla’s forthcoming Supercharger V3.0 rollout is a way for the electric car maker to set up and emphasize its lead in the electric car market, the Silicon Valley-based company is not the only one developing high-powered charging stations. Volkswagen’s Electrify America, which was established as part of the car conglomerate’s demands following its Dieselgate scandal, is installing 350 kW ultra-fast chargers in the United States. Porsche has also announced that its dealers in the United States will be installing Turbo Charging stations, which will have an output of 320 kW. Both these chargers will be harmonious with the Porsche Taycan, which is expected to debut later this season.

Elon Musk, for his part, is not intimidated by the higher output of rsquo & competitors . Explaining this stage at the Q1 2018 earnings call, Musk said that “the thing about a 350 kW charger is that it doesn’t actually make a ton of sense, unless you have a monster battery pack or have like a mad high C rating. We believe 350 kW for a automobile that is single; you’re gonna if you do this, frag the battery pack. ”

With Tesla’s forthcoming Supercharger V3.0 along with other ultra-fast charging solutions debuting on the Marketplace, electrical mobility is closing in on the convenience provided by conventional fuel-ups in gasoline stations.
