Today, Tesla built the first V3 super charging pile in China at Shanghai Jinqiao super charging station and officially opened it to the outside world, marking the official entry of V3 super charging pile into the Chinese market.Compared with the previous generation of charging piles, the charging efficiency of V3 super charging piles has been significantly improved. Under ideal working conditions, charging for 5 minutes can bring 120 kilometers of driving range for vehicles.
It is reported that the V3 super charging pile uses a brand new battery control strategy and power electronic components to allow the battery to charge with the maximum power it can withstand. Its maximum charging power can reach 250KW, and its performance is twice that of V2 super charging pile which is widely used in China (at present, the power of V2 super charging pile is about 120kw).
Taking Tesla Model 3 model with long endurance as an example, under the peak power condition, the charging capacity in 5 minutes can increase its endurance mileage by about 120 kilometers, and the average charging time of users can be reduced by about 50% under the ideal condition.
In order to cope with the cable heating caused by high-power charging, the new V3 super charging post adopts liquid cooling cable, which makes the charging harness more light, flexible and more friendly to female users.
In addition, Tesla has introduced the function of on route battery warming. When the Tesla model detects that the owner is going to the charging station for charging through the vehicle navigation.Near the charging point, Tesla will automatically start the preheating system of the battery to achieve the best charging temperature of the battery pack.This feature alone will reduce the average charging time by 25%.
At present, the Tesla super charging network has covered more than 140 cities in China, and the number of super charging stations has exceeded 300, gradually forming a dense charging network across the East and the south.With the full replacement of V3 super charging pile, Tesla owners will charge more conveniently and more efficiently in the future.
