"This combination of higher peak power with V3, dedicated vehicle power allocation across Supercharger sites, and On-Route Battery Warmup enables customers to charge in half the time and Tesla to serve more than twice the number of customers per hour", the company said. Design-wise, V3 Superchargers look the same as V2, but come with a thicker charging cable. Although the rates are initially for Model 3, the company will boost Model S and Model X speeds "in the coming months".
"Your Model 3 is now able to charge at V3 Superchargers at up to 250 kW peak rates".
Tesla says that, on average, V3 Supercharging will halve the amount of time its customers spend charging to about 15 minutes. Tesla's Supercharging V3, announced last night, charges the Model 3 at a rate of up to 1,000 miles per hour (temporarily), or what Tesla says can gain you as much as 75 miles of range in five minutes.
Tesla says that it has 12,000 Superchargers across North America, Europe, and Asia-and that 99 percent of the US population is covered by the charging network.
To make better use of the Supercharger network, Tesla says it will also update its cars with a new feature that begins to prewarm their batteries when they approach a Supercharger, similar to the prewarming that occurs in some models when you use Ludicrous mode.

Tesla plans to expand beyond the first beta charger next month, when it will break ground on the first public V3 Supercharger.
The first videos of Tesla's next-generation Supercharger V3 have been shared online, providing an initial glimpse at how the next-generation charging solution works, and the benefits it carries. At launch, only Model 3 owners will be able to use V3 Supercharging. More will become available in this year's second and third quarter, with Europe and Asia-Pacific regions following by the end of the year.
The first beta test V3 chargers are now in operation in California, near Tesla's headquarters, and work on the first full sites will begin in April.
Also new in a firmware update (2019.7.11) for Model 3 owners is "Summon with Key Fob", which lets owners "move your Model 3 in and out of a parking space from outside the vehicle using a paired key fob. Press the front or rear trunk button on the key fob to move the vehicle foward and reverse respectively".
