    Interesting. They extended the delivery event into Monday saying only RWD cars will be available. Did anyone on TMC go and check things out on Monday?

    Another update... https://electrek.co/2019/03/06/tesla-supercharger-v3-kw-capacity-efficiency/

    In Fremont today, Tesla is launching the next generation Supercharger V3 with higher charging capacity (250 kW), better efficiency, and more. Some of the most important points:
    • 250 kW peak power without powershare between stations
    • Just for Model 3 vehicles after software update for now
    • Model S and Model X to follow later – again through software
    • First non-beta stations coming in Q2
    Tesla announced that new Supercharger is able to deliver a new 250 kW of peak power thanks to an “all-new liquid cooled cable design.”

    Does anyone think this site can be added to supercharge.info as a “limited access” location for now?

    @FlatSix911 you seem to be saying that the four new V3 Supercharger pedestals are located at 47400 Kato Road, is that right? In the announcement Tesla sent out, I do not see an address.

    Right, and the in-car screenshots I've seen floating around the InterTubes (maybe it's all the same picture?) don't show an address more specific than "Kato Rd."

    The last permit related to Superchargers at 47400 Kato Rd was finaled on 3/1/2018. Due to the fact that the V3 pedestal looks pretty much the same as V2, this may be been in place for a year undergoing testing. My understanding is that these are close to the building, not the abandoned ones along the road. They were also issue a permit for a "Parking security gate" at the end of January, 2019. Most of the other permits are for labs. NVH, anechoic chamber, antenna chamber, dyno, etc.

    v3 Test site is here, but I don't think it will open to public, it's basically an Tesla office building and warehouse, not suitable for public access.

    Okay, thanks for the info. I will update the thread title. And I suppose this thread should be moved back to the California Superchargers forum even though this is not a location open to the public.

    I’m surprised we haven’t seen more photos of this (the site in general) from the launch event. Has anyone been back? Are the stalls visible from the street (back when this was a half-built site they were visible on google street view). Have people who recieved the update before attending the event been able to access the site since?

    Does anyone think this site can be added to supercharge.info as a “limited access” location for now?

    Thanks for posting that. It’s fun to see how enthusiastic @tesla_raj is about those high charge rates.:cool: And I liked his measurement unit of the new cable thickness: “one finger length”.

    So now that I have 19.8.3 which is GREATER than 7.11, shouldn't I be able to charge my TM3 now? Is this site available?

    No, everything we have seen is that only 2019.7.11 has the V3 Supercharger support. (Have you seen release notes showing V3 support yet? (You can see them here: 2019.7.11)
