The Invitation event takes place tonight at 20:00 Pacific in Fremont.
Details of Supercharger V3.0 have remained sparse, but judged by the teaser image in Tesla's email invitation, a much thinner charge cable can be seen that apparently confirms the Supercharger V3 rumors of a liquid-cooled charge cable being used. 19659002] CEO Elon Musk first announced during Tesla's 2015 Shareholders of Mountain View, CA that floating refrigerated charging cables would be integrated into various Supercharger locations.
"We have just introduced an upgrade which is a liquid-cooled cable which means the cable can be very thin. In fact, we have the first work version of this here at the Mountain View Supercharger site, so you can try it out for
Using a thinner wire, Tesla is able to give the owners more maneuverability when plugging into their vehicles, while reducing the operating temperature of the cable and providing higher power.
"It has caused some customers to be quite astonished that they are plugging a Supercharger with this small wire and they thought something was wrong, but it is actually only our next generation
Also in the annual shareholder 2015, Musk noted that using liquid cooling, Superchargers can handle more power, thus leading to even faster charging. "It also has the potential for increased power on the Supercharger sieve."
The V3 Supercharging is Tesla's next generation of ultra-fast charging, which is expected to have a power of 200 kW and a maximum capacity of 250 kW.
