Tesla’s V3 Supercharger capable of up to 250 kW charging rates has landed in Berlin, Germany.
According to Yahoo Finance, managers at Tesla were seen showing off a brand new set of V3 Superchargers in Berlin. The Tesla employees also shared that the company was looking to place the new chargers in more cities soon.
Jeroen van Tilburg, European manager of charging infrastructure at Tesla told reporters, “Now, as part of our commitment to make Tesla ownership easy and convenient for everyone including those without immediate access to home or workplace charging, we are expanding our supercharging network into city centres.”
While the company still suggests workplace and home charging as the primary options for charging an owner’s Tesla, a company spokesperson shared that the quick option was a great way to quickly charge up.

The Tesla V3 Supercharger is able to charge an average Tesla Model 3 within 5 minutes, with a range of 75 miles.
At the unveiling event, German Economy Minister, Peter Altmaier, told reporters, “We have a lot to make up for in terms of charging infrastructure.”
While charging and battery-related issues remain the central difficulties with EVs, Tesla is hosting Battery Day on September 22, and if it does, in fact, release a rumored “million-mile battery,” it could change the game completely for EVs.
