Latest software improves Tesla Supercharger times by up to 25%

Good news for owners that have a Model S or X, the latest software - thanks to warming up battery when you head to a Supercharger - improves supercharging times by up to 25%. It is pretty amazing that cars from 2012 are still getting better! For now if you use the navigation when heading to a Supercharger, that way your car will charge faster.

According to Elon, between the software update, the new v3, and the increase in power in v2, Superchargers charge time will drop by a factor of 2 for the whole Tesla fleet and a factor of 4 for Model 3s. These changes more than double total Supercharger system throughput worldwide.
