Does anyone know what speed a MR Model 3 will charge with the new V3 Supercharger standard? I’m running 2019.20.4.1 and the fastest I’ve see is 120 on a V2 unit and only for about 30 seconds. All of the published speeds I’ve read about quote a LR Model 3. I know the onboard charger on my MR with Level 2 charging is slower than the LR, but I guess I assumed the Supercharging rate would be equal since it bypasses the onboard unit (right?). I know there aren’t a huge number of MRs out there but thought someone may have read about this somewhere (I haven’t been able to try a V3 yet to verify personally). Thanks!

My approximation:
The 75kWh battery in the LR can charge at v3 250kW, or about 3.33C

Assuming the same battery chemistry, and just a proportionally smaller number of cells (instead of a software locked battery pack, evidenced by the reduced curb weight)

The MR has a 62kWh battery
Charging at 3.33c = ~207kW.


SR 50kWh @ 3.33c = ~167kw...
