Although electric vehicles are becoming the norm, there are still many people who scoff at the idea and the problems related to it. The most pressing of is the amount of time needed to recharge a battery, which currently takes about 20 minutes.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk might have come up with a solution for this problem in the form of a next-gen Supercharger, which he claims will be capable of recharging a Tesla in mere seconds. Musk hinted over his Twitter account that his Supercharger V3 could give up to 350 kW. That’s double the current output of Superchargers on the Tesla network.
He also revealed some exciting news about solar panels installed on the existing Supercharger stations. Musk said,
“There are some installed already, but full rollout really needs Supercharger V3 and Powerpack V2, plus SolarCity. Pieces now in place.”
If the Supercharger V3 are installed across the US, we might be seeing some current coast-to-coast records being put to pieces.
Electric cars are the future. All car manufacturers are scrambling to get on board. Even they know that plane is ready for take off. Luddites, listen up or get zapped in the change.
