Went by the Tesla Fremont Factory V3 Supercharger again this morning a little after 8am. There were four V3 chargers open.
My Model 3 LR RWD is now on version 2019.20.2.1 5659e07. I preconditioned on my way there. Arrived with 12% SoC (40 miles) remaining. Started charging at 8:16am, reaching an initial maximum of 216 kW (924 mi/hr) and stabilizing at around 200 kW. I finished at 80% SoC 25 minutes later at 8:41am. Adding 220 miles in 25 minutes.
Since the fastest portion of the charge is from 10% to 60%, once all nearby V3 Superchargers are upgraded, I could do my weekly commute from Oakland to San Francisco with a single 7 minute charge. (160 miles each week, 32 miles round trip per day)
Lol, “mission accomplished”. Though in all seriousness, it doesn’t seem like they’ll deploy any outside California this year. Just did an 800mi drive and would only repeat it if v3 was available, otherwise we’ll use my wife’s CRV To save 2.5hrs of the commute.
the NW hasn't had much of anything for Superchargers in recent years, let alone since the V3. they have one in Auburn (just SE of Seattle) and one in a downtown Seattle garage, under construction, but otherwise the NW is becoming a Supercharger desert compared to other places that have significantly fewer Teslas per capita.
@Bokonon - were you maybe thinking of the chinese EV company breaking ground on a factory in eastern WA maybe?
I think that the seaatle north to Canada I5 corridor is pretty good. we charged in Linnwood, Burlington at SC and visited the Arlington SC near the casino (which also had destinations at the casino itself). South of Seattle is due it seems.
And it's a beauty! 250kW V3 supercharging stations, Power Packs to handle peak demand, and Solar Panels to provide shade and power.
One report says 24 stalls, another says 39. Either way, it's pretty large.
EDIT: ok, third report clarifies: 24 V3 superchargers and 15 destination chargers.
This is what living in the future is supposed to look like!
wow! that is amazing. what an incredible testament to the future looking bright!
I saw "Tomorrowland" (Hugh Laurie, George Clooney) yesterday and if you look at that movie the right way it is hugely depressing in that the bright future people imagined in the 60's just is not going to happen. Sites (and sights!) like this V3 in Las Vegas make it seem like a bright future may squeak out in the end after all.
