I know I know 2 Tesla posts in one day, but this is huge.... The New V3 supercharger of Tesla has been tested by a owner of a Model3 and it's really impressive. There are a few other Fast chargers in Europe and the results are shown in the article..

We have new data about the performance of Tesla’s new Supercharger version 3 (V3) when charging a Tesla Model 3 Long Range. It’s even faster than we thought! YouTuber Dagery recorded a charging session, showing the Tesla recovering 50% of the battery capacity in under 12 minutes.
The vehicle was plugged in at a low 2% state of charge, quickly shot up to the full 250 kW power, and added 50% of capacity in 11 minutes and 29 seconds from the start of the charge session! Dragery went on to charge to 90% before closing out the session, giving us a wealth of new data on the Supercharger V3 charging curve.
A more typical charge session, plugging in at 10%, is almost as fast, adding 50% of range in about 12 and a half minutes.
To me, it looks like the Model 3 paired with Supercharger V3 is crushing it. Able to cover almost 740 km with just a 20 minute break, the vehicle is usually going be waiting for its owners on road trips, and not the other way around.
This is another reason to buy a Tesla, their supercharger network is only accessed by Tesla vehicles, so most places the only way to recharge your car fast is to own a tesla (Tesla Supercharge network in AUS is the only fast charger service in Australia)
Nice .. but I thought this claim: "their supercharger network is only accessed by Tesla vehicles, so most places the only way to recharge your car fast is to own a tesla"
had been successfully challenged on this forum before!??!,.. though I can't remember the outcome of the debacle of course otherwise, um,.. I would know the outcome of said debacle....
If your in the market for a electric car and tesla are the only ones that can use fast chargerers it makes it more attractive.
A big one is jaguar EV, over $100,000 and no access to a fast charger so far in Austrsalia, so instead of minutes to recharge on a long trip it will be hours, so if your in the market and you need to do long trip it would make the Tesla really the only option.
Now where the confusion is, Tesla as a service to it's customers also lists any charger as a Destination charger... So a Tesla is compatible with these Stations...
Tesla use only, Fast charging Supercharge network owned by Tesla
Tesla list of every charger in Australia that is compatable with thair cars but owned by 3rd parties
So other fast chargers will be installed in Australia ,especially now with Jag, Hyundai and Nissan selling EV's. Unfortunately the other car manufacturers are relying on 3rd party companies to build them so it could take years before it's profitable to build them...
Tesla unlike the legacy car builders have a mission of Cleaning up the Earth...
They built the first real electric car and continue to build them better and safer (unlike the others that had to be dragged into any safety because it costs money, like seatbelts and airbags)
They are one of the biggest solar panel makers and sellers ,they just developed a solar panel that looks like a roofing tile so no more ugly solar panels on your roof.
The also do a home battery
So from Tesla you can be completely self suppling with energy use, solar panels, battery storage and a car......
And more to topic the only Electric Vehicle you can buy that can be Refuelled quickly in Australia...
Their cheapest car in Australia is around $70,000 on road ,it's the size of a Camry , it's a luxury car so it's the same price as it's competitors, BMW ,Merc and AUDI also Lexus….. Much Lower running costs, that's why it's best selling Luxury car last year in the USA and still best selling this year...
