Tesla unleashes its first ultra fast 250kW supercharger

At 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.
Alongside V3 Superchargers, Tesla also showed off an update for its vehicles called 'On-Route Battery Warmup.' This heats the vehicle's battery when it's on route to a Supercharger, preparing it for peak charging while the vehicle is on the way to the charger.
The electric vehicle firm's V3 Supercharger system is built on an entirely new architecture, with a 1MW power cabinet that can charge at up to 250kW per auto.
An upcoming update will "prewarm" Tesla vehicle batteries when a driver draws near to a Supercharger.
Tesla yesterday opened its first "public beta" V3 charging site in Fremont, California.
The rollout of the V3 Supercharging network will take until the end of the year and allow twice as many cars each day to charge. Now, Tesla says, its cars will adjust the temperature of the battery pack as the auto approaches the Supercharger to ensure optimal current flow.
Assuming these speeds can be maintained, Tesla owners who visit a V3 Supercharging station should find that their cars will charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour. 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. Because this is just a software hack, the fix can be rolled out to the Model S and X as well.
As exciting as this news is for current Tesla owners, it may be wise to temper your expectations. The first V3 Supercharger sites in Europe and Asia are due in the final quarter of the year. It has plans to bump up the charge rates at more than 12,000 V2 Superchargers from 125kW to 145kW in coming weeks. More chargers will begin rolling out in April for North America.
