200 kW of power for Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range should shorten Supercharging time quite significantly.
We have a confirmation that Tesla's new over-the-air updates unlocked higher Supercharging power rates not only for the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (to 170 kW), but also for the Mid-Range version too.
After the update, both models are now also able to fully utilize V2 Supercharging stations, that in most cases should be able to deliver up to 150 kW (some sites are limied to lower power).
The update potentially might be worth up to a quarter of an hour less time when charging from 20-80%.
The full 250 kW rate at V3 Superchargers so far can be utilized only by the top of the line Long Range Model 3 versions, and only for a short part of charging process.
Tesla cars can charge at up to:
- Tesla Model 3 (Standard Range Plus from 2019.36.1 update): 170 kW (previously 100 kW)
- Tesla Model 3 (Mid Range from 2019.40.1.1 update): 200 kW (previously 120 kW)
- Tesla Model 3 (top of the line Long Range versions): 250 kW
- Tesla Model S/Tesla Model X (Long Range "Raven"): 200 kW
Tesla Superchargers peak output:
- V2: 150 kW (compared to 120 kW originally)
- V3: 250 kW
