New Tesla Supercharger V3 set for release in ‘late’ summer this year
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has recently confirmed the timing for the launch of the electric vehicle manufacturer’s powerful new fast charger, the Supercharger V3. Musk said that Tesla Motors has plans underway to release the Supercharger V3 fast charger for EVs in ‘late’ summer this year.
The Supercharger V3 fast charger marks the next generation of Tesla’s DC fast-charging technology.
Musk had teased a new ‘Tesla Supercharger V3’ in December 2016, and had asserted that the automaker’s new fast charger will boast more than 350 kW power output and off-grid solar and Powerpack systems.

The company has stated, earlier this month, in its Q1 2018 earnings call that it will now be launching fast chargers with 200-250 kW capacity, which it claims will be two times as powerful as its existing Superchargers.
