While other car manufacturers are trying to figure out how to get batteries for their cars that allow their cars to travel long distances, Tesla has already taken several steps ahead of them. In addition to the fact that Tesla cars have a large range, the company took care of its customers in a special way, creating its own network of charging stations Superсharger.

Now, with batteries with increasing capacity and faster and cheaper charging points, owning an electric car is a pleasure. In these conditions, traveling on an electric car has ceased to be a problem, but, as practice shows, today only Tesla is able to provide its customers with an excellent opportunity to do this.

In addition, the American manufacturer of electric vehicles is working to improve their cars and reduce their charging time.

The owner of Tesla Zack, who owns Model 3 and Model Y, compared charging efficiency. While he was charging Model Y, the maximum load power reached 251 kW.

This is a V3 Supercharger, which represents a huge improvement over some V2, which allow a maximum power of up to 150 kW. V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging. A new 1MW power cabinet with a similar design toTesla'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.

But, with Model Y Tesla went even further. As a result, Zack saw how the charging speed of his Model Y reached at least 1022 miles per hour, which in practice allowed him to gain a charge from 5% with which he reached the station to 85% in just 20 minutes.

Model 3, and at the same station, has lower load indicators than Model Y, which indicates that the load curve in the SUV is better.

Capacity, which, in addition to faster loads, will have an important effect on the rotational speed of these points, which will allow to offer service to more vehicles per day. It will reduce saturation problems at some stations during scheduled dates, such as the start of vacations or during holidays time.
