According to Canadian Supercharger sleuth, @MarcoRPTesla, the user reported hearing the upgraded speeds would reach 370kW, from an unnamed source on the Supercharging team.
In either case, the upgrade would speed up the time it takes to Supercharge, and help alleviate line ups and congestion at the busiest locations.
The news also comes ahead of Tesla’s apparent plans to open its Supercharger network to other EV brands, a plan which the company announced last year.
While Tesla has already deployed the new feature in the Netherlands, it’s not yet clear when the U.S. automaker plans to unveil this change around the world.
Last week, Tesla unveiled a number of new Supercharger stations, including new locations in Japan, Australia, Canada and the U.S.
