Tesla Unveils New Supercharger Update As Fast Charging Feature


The new feature will enable Tesla Model 3 to function for “120 kilometres” on a three minutes’ charge.

Tesla Inc. managers came out with the demonstration of a “new supercharger equipment” which was carried out in a research campus in Berlin. This step was taken to “attract potential buyers” who worry for charging access, as the company look to take the same to “more target cities”.
Tesla’s Manager of Charging Infrastructure, Europe, Jeroen van Tilburg:
“Now, as part of our commitment to make Tesla ownership easy and convenient for everyone including those without immediate access to home or workplace charging, we are expanding out supercharging network into city centres”.
According to a spokesperson of Tesla, the company is planning to open minimum “one more inner-city fast charging” within Germany this year, while there could also be more. Furthermore, the spokesman also reminded the reporters that Tesla still holds its faith with “slow workplace and residential charging” to be the major charging points of the vehicles, while it is also willing to present “a quicker option”.
The newly demonstrated model, called V3 charger, will enable Tesla Model 3 to function for “120 kilometres” on a three minutes’ charge. Moreover, older models of Tesla will also receive the “relevant software upgrades”. On the other hand, the policy makers of Germany want to generate more “demands for electric cars” in emissions reduction measure. In the words of the Economy Minister of Germany, Peter Altmaier:
“We have a lot to make up for in terms of charging infrastructure”.
He also stressed on the urge of speeding up on rolling-out of “public charging points” as well as permits for “private charging”, crucial factors that affected sales earlier. According to Reuters reports:
“Latest legislation for a green-led recovery after the coronavirus crisis offers buyers incentives and helps bump up power grids”.
Tesla has selected a site close to Berlin for its new factory which is scheduled to begin its operations by next year.
