The company also notes that the V3 Supercharger station can handle up to 1 500 EVs per day, with the big upshot of such an offering being that Tesla owners in future won't have to head to their local dealership or home in order to give their vehicle some extra juice. Electric vehicle owners in Europe often try to rely on Tesla's Supercharger public chargers even if their auto belongs to a different company as seen in some pictures from Tesla owners in the region.

This new Supercharger station also gives us a glimpse into what future electric auto charging stations should/will look like. The result is a complete system that generates its own energy and passes it along to thousands of Tesla vehicles.

What's even more interesting is that the Tesla V3 Supercharger uses a 1 MW power cabinet and liquid cooling for cables that have a charging rate of 1,000 miles per hour or (1600 km/h). Caesars aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2025 because of which it houses the new charging station.

The new charging station is located below the High Roller on LINQ promenade on a Caesars Entertainment property that situated off the Las Vegas Strip.

How fast you can recharge using a V3 Supercharger depends on the Tesla model and age. Other cars will have to work with sub-peak performances.

According to Tesla, Las Vegas saw an average of 6,500 Supercharging sessions per month prior to opening the new site. With the V3 hardware, Tesla owners will be able to recover up to 180 miles of range in just 15 minutes (in a Model 3 Long Range). Unfortunately, the Model 3 is only auto in Tesla's current lineup that can take advantage of the 250 kW charging.

Tesla also shared the information via a fun tweet. The Model S and X will be charged at 200kWh. The first is price, and the second is infrastructure.

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

Tesla Powerpack batteries used in the V3 Supercharger are a true and tested product with a number of features.
