Tesla’s first V4 Supercharging station (16 stalls), positioned in Harderwijk within the Netherlands, is now open to non-Tesla electrical autos.
Tesla initially launched the station for Tesla EVs solely on March 15 (see video of charging right here), saying that “soon” it is going to welcome all EVs.
Opening the station for non-Tesla electrical autos is the primary level of the introduction of the V4 stalls, which are outfitted with longer cables to achieve charging inlets in numerous places.
We assume that the preliminary exams have been accomplished, and on April 8, Tesla introduced that the positioning is open for all EVs – after all, solely these appropriate with the CCS Combo 2 (CCS2) connector, which isused in Europe for quick charging.
The non-Tesla Supercharging Pilot is at the moment obtainable at choose stations in 15 European international locations, Australia, and the US (about 10 websites).
When it comes to V4 Superchargers, which sooner or later can be put in not solely in Europe but additionally in North America, they’re anticipated to convey a big change to the community.
Tesla’s first V4 Supercharging stalls, put in in Harderwijk, Netherlands.
Let’s listing what we all know and what’s anticipated or probably potential:
- Design/dimension: the black and white, V4 stalls are taller than V3, and closed, with a cable hooked up on the prime
- Cable size: V4 has an extended cable – about 9.5-9.8 toes (calculated from 2.9-3 meters) versus 6-6.5 toes within the V3 model, to achieve charging inlets in numerous places (non-Tesla EVs)
- Energy output (initially 250 kW): V4 stalls probably ought to ship greater energy than the V3 (250 kW) and assist high-voltage battery methods. The utmost DC present output of the stalls (in response to the pictures) is as much as 615 amps (A) and 1,000 volts (V), so 615 kW could be theoretically potential (relying on the charging cupboard, and EV functionality).
There was unofficial data about 350 kW output one 12 months from now.
- Charging commonplace:
In Europe (and in many of the remainder of the world), the V4 to be appropriate with the CCS2 charging commonplace
In North America (and another markets), the V4 can be outfitted with the MagicDock (built-in CCS1 adapter) to assist Tesla’s proprietary charging commonplace (named by the producer NACS) and CCS1-compatible EVs.
