Tesla continues to expand its Supercharger Network worldwide. Now the newest version of the Supercharger - V3, arrives in Taiwan.
Tesla Taiwan opened two new V3 Supercharger locations last week. The first object was opened at the University of Taiwan in Taipei, the second in the building of the Tainan Art Museum.
On June 29, Tesla announced that the 18th Taiwan Supercharger and Taiwan's first V3 charging station were officially opened. The detailed location is on Xinhai Road and Fusing South Road. The Xinhai Parking Entrance is located directly below the library of the National Taiwan Academy of Social Sciences.
On June 3, Tesla announced the opening of its second V3 Supercharger in Taiwan in the southern city of Tainan. This Supercharger is the 19th in Taiwan. The new charger, which has eight charging stalls, is located in the second building of the Tainan Art Museum and is the largest in the country.

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. At this rate, a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover up to 75 miles of charge in 5 minutes and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour.
At the Taipei International Auto Show in December, Tesla announced that it plans to increase the total number of Supercharger installations in Taiwan to 25 in 2020. The company remains true to its statement and has already installed 19. By the end of 2020, the country should have the declared number of branded charging stations, but it remains unknown how many of them will be V3.
