Electric car company Tesla has recently confirmed some upgrades for its Supercharger stations in Europe. Its improvements allow the Superchargers to fill up electric car batteries faster than previous. Meanwhile, the US Superchargers have yet to receive these upgrades.

As seen on the official Tesla Twitter page, the upgrades for the European Supercharger stations have been confirmed in France. The main Tesla site lists more 15 other European Supercharger regions which greatly improves the company’s services in the continent.

The new Supercharger improvement ups the charging rate of the stations to 150 kilowatts (kW) compared to its previous 120 kW. With the increase, Tesla car owners can spend less time charging their cars up. So far, many regions have received the 150 kW upgrade but some regions have received a 130 kW instead in a report from CNET.

Prior to the upgrade, most electric vehicles take up 30 minutes to get charged up to 80 percent of its battery. The upgrade would be sure to speed up the charging time for consumers and speed up the service end of these stations.

In the U.S., Tesla announced that it would upgrade the V2 Supercharger stations to handle 145 kW. However, the company has yet to inform its customers of which regions are already have this upgrade.

The upgrades for the Superchargers will greatly improve the service of Tesla to its customers. As of now, Tesla is known for its Supercharger station network which makes consumers opt for their cars instead. Due to the convenience these charging stations offers, its rivals are also finding ways to catch up to the Supercharger stations.

Tesla is currently working on to roll out more V3 Supercharger stations. The company confirms that it’ll charge up to 250 kW which is exponentially greater compared to the recent upgrades in Europe.  Currently, the first V3 Supercharger station is in Las Vegas which is somehow close to Tesla’s Gigafactory 1 in Nevada.

Other than new Supercharger stations and upgrades, the company is also planning to release the next Model Y crossover SUV this late 2019.
