Kettleman City is upgrading to V3

Kettleman City is for sure at the top of my favorite Superchargers. If you happen to be in California and drive close by, stop for a quick charge and a latte. This week this Supercharger is getting even more awesome since Tesla started converting its stalls to V3. It’s great news that soon- maybe even on time for Thanksgiving?- we will have 40 V3 Superchargers between LA and SF!

Superchaging V3, charged 5-85% in 20 mins

Tesla is several steps ahead than its competition equipping its cars with batteries that not only have more capacity, but are also able to charge faster, and are cheaper to manufacture. Tesla’s latest effort in that direction is Model Y’s heat pump and octovalve system, that significantly shortens Supercharging times compared to the Model 3 ones. Tesla owner Zack (@BLKMDL3), featured in this article by Tesmanian, shared his recent experience charging his Model Y in a V3 Supercharger and going from 5% to 85% capacity in just 20 minutes. This is not a theory anymore, it’s real. Just wow.

Tesla debuts massive V3 Supercharger station in the heart of Las Vegas Strip

This Supercharger station has 24 V3 charging stalls and 15 additional Tesla wall connectors. The wall connectors are powered by solar panels during the day and by power walls at night. Honestly, this Supercharger looks amazing! And on top of that, it’s great news that Tesla is already installing V3 Superchargers outside of the beta test locations and that they are using a full Tesla solar system to power them. This makes possible installing Superchargers that are independent from the electirc grid opening it up to more remote locations.
