Summary

Tesla says that "[a]t this rate, a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover up to 75 miles of charge in 5 minutes and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour."Additionally, the new design means that any Tesla plugging into it should be able to charge at the full 250kW; the current Superchargers often supply cars with much less than their maximum 120kW if the stalls are full as the chargers have to split the available power as we discovered in our recent Model 3 test.Further ReadingThe Tesla Model 3, reviewed (finally)To make better use of the Supercharger network, Tesla says it will also update its cars with a new feature that begins to prewarm their batteries when they approach a Supercharger, similar to the prewarming that occurs in some models when you use Ludicrous mode. Instead, these V2 Superchargers will have new software that will boost them to 145kW.As Tesla's newest vehicle, the Model 3 is already designed to suck in juice from the more powerful V3 Superchargers.
