Software 2020.24.6 has expanded some of the capabilities of Tesla cars, including supercharger improvements. So in the release notes, we can find: "Your car is now able to charge at V3 Superchargers at up to 225kW peak rates. As usual, when you navigate to a Supercharger, your car will condition its battery during the drive, so it can charge faster."
This brought closer the use of the new generation of Tesla V3 Superchargers for all Tesla models, including Model S and Model X. Previously, newer Tesla Model 3 and Model Y could use them. Now on the company's website, in the description of the specifications of Model S and X, we noticed that these models have a supercharging maximum of 250 kW.

At the moment, it is not known for certain how true this is, because there are still no reviews from the owners who could refute or confirm this. However, the new specification, which appeared for Model S and X, indicates that the company continues to take care of its customers and make their driving experience better.
The V3 Supercharger was introduced in the spring of 2019 and Tesla has been stepping up its efforts recently to install new charging stations around the world. V3, based on the company's experience in creating the world’s largest grid-connected batteries, allows Tesla vehicles to charge faster than any other electric car on the market today.
V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging. A new 1MW power cabinet with a similar design to Tesla's utility-scale products supports peak rates of up to 250kW per car. The Superchargers with the new V3 power electronics are designed so that any owner can charge with the full power that their car battery can take, so you no longer need to share energy with the car near you.
The V3 Supercharging system allows you to provide the fastest possible charging at an unprecedented scale compared to other electric vehicle manufacturers. By increasing the number of vehicles that can be charged on each Supercharger per day, the investment that Tesla makes in their network will increase significantly with each deployed V3 charger station.
