Tesla’s first V4 Supercharging station with 16 stalls in the Netherlands, Harderwijk, is now open to non-Tesla electric vehicles.
On March 15, Tesla established its first V4 Supercharger location but at the time, only their cars could utilize it, until today. Although the V4 is capable of producing 350 kW of charge, it is initially limited to 250 kW. The company has since confirmed that the new site is open to all electric vehicle makers that use CCS2.
The V4 comes with substantially longer wires to reach charging inlets in various locales, according to early customers. Tesla confirmed the cables are between 9.5 and 9.8 feet (2.9 to 3 meters) which is 3.5 feet longer than we get on the V3 Supercharger.
The stall’s design is entirely redesigned; there is no longer a void in the center, and the charging cable holder is now located on the stall’s side. In theory, the V4 can produce up to 615 amps and 1,000 volts direct current, which implies it can produce 615 kW. In Europe, the V4 comes with the CCS2 connector whereas in North America it comes with the Magic Dock, which automatically switches between CCS2 and Tesla connector (NACS) depending on the vehicle being charged.
While some Tesla owners may be put off by anticipated wait periods, in reality, the more charging stations we have, the less we have to wait. Charging times are substantially faster with the V4, and with 16 booths in Harderwijk, there should be no waiting.
The non-Tesla Supercharging Pilot is now available at chosen stations in 15 European nations, Australia, and approximately ten sites in the United States, with plans to expand coverage in the near future
