This will reduce the charging time by 25%.
V3 Superchargers use a new charging architecture with a 1MW power cabinet that allows for peak charging rates of 250kW per vehicle.
For now, Tesla has opened the one public beta V3 Supercharger in Fremont, California. The new Superchargers are created to charge at the full power the car's battery can handle, so owners no longer have to share power with the vehicle in the next stall.
Tesla is also flexing its software muscles with the new V3 Supercharger standard with a creative feature called "On Route Battery Warmup". When an owner navigates to a charging station, their vehicle will make sure the battery is raised to an optimal temperature when they arrive which Tesla says can reduce average charge times by 25 percent.

Pakistan also chose to return its envoy Sohail Mahmood to Delhi, and keep alive the Kartarpur corridor talks scheduled next week. The Interior Ministry said that the actions will continue as per the decisions taken by the National Security Committee (NSC).
As Tesla's newest vehicle, the Model 3 is already created to suck in juice from the more powerful V3 Superchargers. Combined with other improvements we're announcing today, V3 Supercharging will ultimately cut the amount of time customers spend charging by an average of 50%, as modeled on our fleet data.
However, it will take a while for V3 to come online: The first V3 Supercharging site is a beta-test location in the Bay Area, available for Tesla's Early Access customers, and the first non-beta location will break ground next month. And though no commercially available battery now has the capacity, Tesla says the new Superchargers can theoretically restore 1,000 miles of range in an hour.
Europe and the Asia-Pacific will then follow in Q4; Tesla Australia has been contacted for a more definite timeline but at this time have not yet been able to comment. It has plans to bump up the charge rates at more than 12,000 V2 Superchargers from 125kW to 145kW in coming weeks.
Power is delivered to the auto via a new liquid-cooled cable design that Tesla claims is actually lighter and more flexible than the current air-cooled cable. It will also increase Model S and X charging speeds via software updates over the coming months.
