Tesla said that the Supercharger station in Harderwijk is currently only open to owners of the company's vehicles. The manufacturer seeks to test it first and evaluate its performance. After testing is over, the Supercharger station will be open to all electric vehicles. In addition, Tesla said that other V4 Superchargers will soon be available across Europe, which will also be available to owners of all electric vehicles.
The charging power of the V4 Supercharger is stated at 250 kW. However, there is no information on whether this is the power limit. Many expected that the new generation of Tesla charging stations would have a power of 350 kW. The charging piles have an extended charging cable to make charging accessible to all electric vehicles, no matter where the charging port is located. In addition, the piles of the V4 Supercharger have a different look. Now they are taller and have a solid body, without a an open space inside, as with previous versions.
