American electric car manufacturer Tesla will modernize its charging stations. Changing cables, power cabinets and car software updates will speed up the charging of cars even twice. First, Americans and Model 3 owners will benefit from this change.
New cables at Tesla charging stations look almost identical to those used so far. According to the manufacturer, new loaders in 5 minutes are able to provide an additional 120 km drive (75 miles). It’s twice as many as before. Of course, a lot depends not only on the charger itself, but also on the car’s software. When Tesla with the intelligent charging system begins to approach the station, the car will cool the battery to provide the most optimal temperature for charging.
Tesla intends to modernize its charging stations, which will be able to provide 250 kW of power this year. This is possible thanks to the new 1 MW power cabinet, as well as the Tesla technology developed for storing large amounts of energy.
Initially, the new V3 chargers will only be available in the San Francisco area for Model 3 users. However, in the coming months the manufacturer intends to introduce software changes in the Model S and Model X. New cables for European Tesla electric car charging stations will be delivered by the end of the year.
