Elon Musk: Tesla Supercharger V3 Coming With Output Over 350 kW
On Christmas Eve during the day, Tesla CEO Elon Musk fired up the Tweetstorm machine on Twitter.
Musk answered some questions related to the Model X holiday light/door show, commented on Superchargers in Canada and even told a potential Tesla Model S P100D buyer that if he didn’t like the car, he could simply return it.
But it was a few Tweets linked Supercharger V3 that caught our attention.
According to Musk, Supercharger V3 will utilize solar and Powerpack V2 to crank up the output to over 350 kW. These V3 Superchargers could theoretically work in off-the-grid areas, provided there’s ample sunshine and it’s not in a snowy region.
Here’s the rest of the series of Tweets:
A mere 350 kW? That’s what’s being deployed already in the CCS camp, so in typical one-up fashion, Tesla is gunning for even higher output…of course. And by saying 350 kW is a children’s toy, we have to assume the target output is much, much higher.
Unfortunately, Musk didn’t give any timeline for any of this, so as of right now, CCS is ahead is the race for high-output charging stations, but as we all know, Tesla is extremely dedicated to the charging infrastructure, so it’s likely just a matter of time before Tesla again takes the lead and never looks back.
