The new Tesla Supercharger V3 outfitted with a solar array system marks a step forward in Tesla's mission for a truly sustainable vehicle ecosystem. The station features 39 charging areas in all, and uses a combination of solar panels and the firm's Powerpack batteries in order to charge vehicles.

It would take Tesla three years before they would finally unveiled their much talked about upgrade to their Supercharger Network.

The new charging model complements the sale of those Model 3 vehicles, which Tesla names as its best-selling vehicle to date.

The new charge points will allow motorists to recharge up to a whopping 180-miles of range in just 15 minutes.

Since then, the automaker has added some V3 Superchargers to existing stations. Looking to address the issue, Tesla this week provided us with more details regarding the next-gen version of its Supercharger station which can charge vehicles at a much faster clip. That is until now.

According to Tesla, the V3 Supercharger comes with a new 1MW power cabinet that can supports peak rates of up to 250kW per vehicle.

Getting stuck at an electric charging station wasn't a concern for the early buyers of electric cars.

Tesla says the V3 Supercharger is an "architecture shift" with a new liquid-cooled cable design (the V2 used air-cooling) and other compelling hardware innovations. However, as we move ahead with time, the number of electric cars on the road is only going to increase. They are capable of recharging a auto battery up to 50 percent faster.

Tesla released a video today that detailed the company's newest charging site, which can be found in Las Vegas, next to the LINQ hotel High Roller ferris wheel.

The EV maker chose Vegas as the location of the new charging station primarily as its Gigafactory is also located in Nevada, which would make servicing the station far easier.
