Tesla A large-scale next-generation electric vehicle station in Las Vegas has opened to bring together the company's core products into a single sustainable energy ecosystem, Elon the Mask Developed almost three years ago.
The new Supercharger V3, which supports a peak rate of up to 250 kW, is designed to significantly reduce the charging times of its electric vehicles. Tesla unveiled its first Supercharger V3 in March at the Fremont plant, California. The Supercharger II V3 is located in Hawthorne, California, close to Tesla Design Studio. Both sites, initially used as test sites, lack major Tesla producers.
This new site in Las Vegas is considered the first Super V3 Charger. It is noticeable, not only because of the size – there are 39 trucks in total. The Supercharger V3 also uses Tesla solar panels and its own Powerpack batteries to generate and store the power needed to power the chargers. The result is an integrated system that generates its own energy and passes it on to thousands of Tesla compounds.
The new supercharger, located off the Las Vegas Strip, Down High Roller on LINQ Corniche, built on Caesar's leisure property. The location is part of The goal of Caesars Entertainment is to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2025.
There are warnings for Supercharger station capabilities. Only one Tesla vehicle – long-range frequency 3 – can be charged at a peak rate of 250 kW. A 250 kW range of up to 180 miles is added to the battery in 15 minutes over a long-range model 3.
The new Model S and Model X cars in the company can charge up to 200 kW.
However, even the older S, X and other Core 3 models will experience faster charging rates at this location due to lack of power sharing, a standard practice at other Tesla charging stations.
Improvements to shipping times are essential for the company as it sells more Model 3 cars, the highest size car. Waiting periods in some popular Supercharger stations may be long. The first adopters may be happy to wait, but as new Tesla customers connect to the Internet, patience may diminish. As more of these V3 Superchargers are available online, potential customers may be encouraged to purchase the long-term 3 version 3.
Tesla said in the past that these improvements will allow the Supercharger network to serve more than double the number of cars per day by the end of 2019 compared to the day.
V3 is not an update to previous generations of the company. It is an architectural transformation that includes a new 1 megawatt power cabinet, similar to the company's closet Products on a utility scale, A liquid cooling cable design, which offers charging rates of up to 1000 mph. Tesla uses air cooled cables on V2 Superchargers.
