We recently covered Tesla’s plans to charge customers who leave their cars idling after their charge has been completed, but now it seems that the car company has more plans for their Supercharger stations than just that.
As some of you probably know, charging your Tesla using the Superchargers isn’t the fastest thing to do, even if you have the A chargers instead of the B chargers, which charge slower. Thankfully, Elon Musk has been giving hints that the third-generation chargers could deliver even more power than the already powerful 150kW chargers. Rumors are suggesting that the amperage could measure in at 350kW, which would be pretty incredible considering the current chargers are again, only at 150kW.
Musk hasn’t given us specific details such as how long it’ll take to fully charge a Tesla, what models will be compatible, and when they’ll arrive. But hopefully, we could be getting all this confirmed by the time the Model 3 is fully announced later in 2017.
It is important to note that Musk himself noted that the “V3” supercharger stations and their new Powerwall 2 battery packs will be key to a wide rollout of solar-powered superchargers that will be more cost effective for Tesla, and more energy efficient for the environment.
