Viva Las Vegas: Tesla Launches First V3 Superchargers In Sin City

Tesla first unveiled the new Supercharger V3 four months ago and opened tow partial charging stations.

Tesla has claimed the new site could charge up to an additional 1,500 cars per day.

The Tesla V3 Supercharger will help in reducing the time taken to charge cars, by a large number.

The V3 is not a retrofit of the company's previous generations.

With solar panels overhead and Tesla Powerpacks onsite to store their energy, Tesla is hoping to lean less on the grid and much more on renewables. A second one soon followed and found a home near the company's Design Studio, in Hawthorne. The result is a complete system that generates its own energy and passes it along to thousands of Tesla vehicles, " the TC report added. Both locations were used as test sites.

The new charging station is located below the High Roller on LINQ promenade on a Caesars Entertainment property that situated off the Las Vegas Strip.

"At this rate, a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover up to 75 miles of charge in 5 minutes and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour", Tesla said in statement introducing V3 Supercharging stations in March 2019. Tesla says that it supports Caesars' "CodeGreen" goal to cut greenhouse-gas emissions 30 percent by 2025.

As for what it's capable of doing, Tesla explains that it can support a peak rate of up to 250kW, and is specifically created to significantly reduce charging time for drivers. They will also experience faster charging at the station because it doesn't allow power-sharing.

The new Model S and Model X revealed earlier this year can charge up to a rate of 200kW.

The new charging model complements the sale of those Model 3 vehicles, which Tesla names as its best-selling vehicle to date. The practice is standard at other charging stations of the company.

The Las Vegas-based charger is considered the first functional supercharger and comes with 39 total charging point.
