Tesla lately opened in Europe its second Supercharging station geared up with V4 stalls, envisioned to deal with Tesla and non-Tesla electrical autos.
The brand new website, situated close to an Ibis lodge in Clermont-Ferrand in France, has 12 particular person stalls, together with one pull-through kind for bigger autos or autos with trailers.

Curiously, there may be some sort of metal construction ready for a cover set up sooner or later (almost definitely a photo voltaic one).
Photographs of the brand new station had been shared on social media by Esther Kokkelmans and lulu63974:
The V4 Supercharging stalls differ from the V3 in some ways, beginning with a black and white coloration (in comparison with crimson and white V3), a taller form and a noticeably longer charging cable – about 9.5-9.8 ft (calculated from 2.9-3 meters) – to succeed in charging inlets of non-Tesla EVs in numerous areas.

Initially, the primary technology of the Tesla Mannequin S/Mannequin X (and Superchargers) had been geared up with a special charging resolution – a Kind 2-compatible charging inlet, used not just for AC, but additionally for DC charging.
Energy output seems to be the identical (250 kilowatts) per stall, however there’s a potential for a lot greater output sooner or later. In response to pictures from the Netherlands, the utmost values are: as much as 615 amps (A) and 1,000 volts (V), so 615 kW could be theoretically attainable (relying on the charging cupboard, and EV functionality). Time will inform whether or not Tesla will improve the ability output or not.
Unofficial experiences point out that the V4 stalls (rated at 350 kW) are coming to North America. They could even be geared up with a built-in CCS adapter (aka Magic Dock).
