Tesla Supercharger V4 will soon be a reality

Tesla has yet to announce its most advanced Supercharger V4 yet. However, thanks to the design plans, we know what it will look like. According to some leaked images on the social network Twitter, the first Supercharger V4-equipped site will be installed first in Arizona, USA.

The site will be large, with 40 boxes, two 4,500-square-foot solar panels, and a Megapack. Solar panels will put to good use in Yuma, Arizona, where it rains just 2 inches a year and the sun shines every day. The Tesla Megapack at the site will also use sunlight to store large amounts of energy. According to Tesla’s website, each Megapack can store over 3MWh of energy, enough to power an average of 3,600 homes for one hour.

The Supercharger V3, the currently used supercharger, was launched in 2019 and has a power of 250 kW. Tesla’s new supercharger is expected to surpass its predecessor in charging power by at least 300kW. Despite the increase in power output, the design of the Supercharger V4 will largely remain the same. The design plans show that it will have the same shape, with the only difference being that the nozzle will live on the outside rather than being hollow on the inside where it currently is.

Demand is growing rapidly

Rising fuel prices around the world are making electric vehicles more attractive than ever. Canalys research shows demand for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow, with 4.2 million vehicles sold worldwide in the first half of 2022, up 63% from the first half of 2021.

In the Old Continent, 1.1 million electric vehicles were delivered in the first half of 2022, or 20% of vehicle sales. In the first half of 2022, Europe accounts for 27% of global sales.

Recall that the leaders in the production of electric vehicles are BYD, Tesla, SAIC Motor, Volkswagen and Geely. It should be noted that EV production is dominated by Chinese OEMs – BYD, SAIC Motor and Geely are among the top five manufacturers.
