Tesla’s first European V3 Supercharging site to go live in London
Tesla has announced the location for the first V3 Superchargers outside North America as it also reaches the milestone of its 500th Supercharger station in Europe.
The first eight V3 Superchargers will be located at Tesla’s new Park Royal station, in London. They bring further gains compared to the V2 Superchargers, providing peak power of 250kW compared to the 150kW offered by the V2 units following a recent upgrade. Importantly, drivers do not need to share power with other drivers either, ensuring the maximum rate is delivered when a compatible car is plugged in.
The new station marks the carmaker’s 500th Supercharger station in Europe. The network now covers more than 4,700 individual Superchargers located across 24 countries.
The new V3 Superchargers in Europe are accessible to all Tesla owners and use the CCS standard, which is now standard equipment on all new Tesla vehicles, Model 3, Model S and Model X, but requires modification to existing Model S and Model X, at extra cost. In addition, Model S and Model X owners using a CCS adapter will only benefit from about the same peak rate output on V3 Superchargers as is available on V2 Superchargers.
