Regarding calling them 350s I don’t think we have any proof they can charge those speeds. There are so many unknowns, so for now they have been set as what tesla rates them as at 250.
The type of stall for each site will be displayed in the coming months.
Yeah noticed this earlier. I did wonder why Tesla UK owners group were so pro the UK government charging legislation where to get funding for new locations they insist on contactless payments.
(After they practically begged Tesla to help out and open up the superchargers to the public last year)
Maybe long term it would work brilliantly but with the news of NACS supercharger integration in the US for the cars I’m expecting (just about) all manufacturers to have an automatic plugin and Bill your account in the car just like tesla. If that is the case then in future there will be much less need for payment options at the station.
The supercharge.info kW field is a simple text box that editors can use to enter any numeric value. Once 350kW Superchargers begin appearing we’ll be able to add those without any changes to the site or backend.
Ok, let’s wait and see for the official launch.
Looks like Tesla is ramping up the roll-out in Europe. Hopefully soon in the other regions as well.
Still good to be able to identify the different type of stalls where according to Rovastar “The type of stall for each site will be displayed in the coming months.” Harderwijk stall is V4, cabinets not sure.
Since Tesla has been opening up the Supercharger network to other car brands, a growing amount of cars with 800 volts charging capability uses the Tesla Superchargers. For example: Hyundai, Kia EV’s as well as Porsche, Audi GT, BYD and XPeng cars. Those cars all have an 800v pack and I see more of those on the road every day. Automakers are increasingly switching to 800v or higher packs, even Tesla with its upcoming Cybertruck.
Charging with such car at a v3 (or older) 400v Tesla Supercharger, provides only a slow charging experience to those cars. Often well under 100 kW.
The v4 Tesla superchargers are able to provide up to 1000v charging output.
It will be a huge improvement for all those 800v cars to use a v4 Supercharger.
Would supercharge.info be able to add a filter on voltage? (400v / 800+v ).
It is a better differentiator than kW, since kW performance depends on the voltage levels of the car and charger.
Adding a voltage filter to the filter function will greatly help all 800v car drivers and attract many new visitors to this website.
At the moment all V4 sites will deliver 400V of power since the stalls are rated for 1000V but as far as we know all deployed V4 sites are all connected to V3 cabinets. So unless Tesla reconfigures the power electronics in the cabinets all superchargers will be 400V, regardless if it is V2/V3/V4.
Besides that the eGMP cars can use their powertrain converter to up power from 400V chargers internally to 800V. If Tesla and Hyundai/Kia agree on solving the communication problem users will experience less of a problem at 400V sites.
(Maybe the rated amperage is even more important)
Thank you for looking into my 400v/800v filter suggestion.
Please be informed that the eGMP platform incompatibility with Tesla 400v Superchargers is not a communication problem, but a physical limitation of the eGMP platform.
