Tesla’s Supercharger outperforms all other EV charging stations, but is still lags expectation of owners. To get the battery charged to 80%, the charger should be plugged in for about 40 minutes, which is not fast enough compared to normal gas pumps. However, Elon Musk has hinted that third-generation Superchargers could be far more powerful than the maximum 150 kW per car at present.

No clarity on speed

Musk said that they are planning on something so big that even the guess made by Electrek’s Fred Lambert of about 350kW is a “children’s toy.” In a tweet, Lambert asked Musk about any update on the solar arrays on the Supercharger stations.

Musk tweeted back saying,” There are some installed already, but full rollout really needs Supercharger V3 and Powerpack V2, plus SolarCity. Pieces now in place.”
