The first V3 Supercharger was opened in Shanghai Jinqiao and the second in Guangzhou Changhua Creative Valley. This expansion indicates that Tesla is strengthening its presence in China, giving its customers access to the best charging options, enhancing the experience of owning their vehicles.
V3 Superchargers were unveiled in the United States in March 2019. According to the release notes under Supercharger Improvements, Model 3 owners could “charge at V3 Supercharger at up to 250 kW peak rates.” This translates to a charging speed of up to 1,000 mph, allowing Model 3 owners to cut their charging times to just around 15-20 minutes.
The rollout of Supercharger V3 stations in China makes a lot of sense, considering that the country will soon be saturated with vehicles that are perfectly compatible with the next-generation infrastructure. Giga Shanghai manufactures Made-in-China Model 3 and will soon begin manufacturing Made-in-China Model Y, both of which are compatible with Supercharger V3's 250 kW output.
