Damn I wish my S would suck back that fast...

They have slowed it down over time.

Tesla may also be "selling" the charge rate on model 3 right now, and slow it down in the future too... preserve battery.

You never know.

I've updated what I say to people for charging my car... I used to say "about a half hour" to get to 80% or more.
Now I say, "about an hour" ... at a supercharger enroute while road tripping.

Maybe, but I think they are anti-selling it to a point. They say:

Long range Supercharging rate: 170 miles of range per 30 minutes
Standard range Supercharging rate: 130 miles of range per 30 minutes

But it looks like the graph shows that he got ~200 miles in 30 minutes.
That's neat! Easily beats how my P85 charges.

If you want to have data like this automatically collected to look at later, I'm going to shamelessly promote the App I made called Nikola that does that. Originally made it for myself, but decided to publish it after people started asking for it.

Available to look at here: Nikola for Tesla on the App Store

Can confirm the app works with the Model 3. The fleet is over 10% Model 3s at this point.

i don't suppose there's any plan to port this to android or a web app?
