Will the Tesla Model 3 Bring the Supercharger Apocalypse?

Many current Tesla Model S and Model X owners are wondering what is going to happen when we have thousands of new Model 3 owners on the road looking to charge? In some area's it's going to be worse than others. Troy, a Tesla Motors Club user, has compiled some great stats on this looking at the ratio of the Tesla fleet versus the Supercharger Stalls. In this video, I take a look at this data and the dashboard I built showing how to interact with it. // Join Our Community on Patreon!

(wikipedia) A Tesla station or Tesla Supercharger station is a network of 480-volt fast-charging stations built by Tesla Inc. to allow longer journeys for their all-electric manufactured vehicles (Model S and Model X), through quick charging of the vehicle's battery packs. Tesla began building the network in 2012. As of 18 December 2016, there were 769 stations globally, with 4,876 chargers.[1] The Supercharger is a proprietary direct current (DC) technology that provides up to[clarification needed] 120 kW of power per car (depending on circumstances),[2] giving the 90 kWh Model S an additional 170 miles (270 km) of range in about 30 minutes charge and a full charge in around 75 minutes.[3] A software update provided in 2015 to all Tesla cars uses demand information from each Supercharger station to plan the fastest route, if charging will be necessary to reach the destination.[4] Supercharging is free, once the option is purchased, for all Tesla cars ordered before January 15, 2017.[5] Cars that are ordered from 2017 onwards will be limited to free 400 kWh (about 1,000 miles or 1,600 km) per year. Beyond that, supercharging will be charged, but at a lower price than filling up a gas car.[6] As of December 16, 2016, a car that remains connected to a Supercharger after being fully charged will be charged an idle fee of $0.40 a minute. This fee is waived if the car is removed in 5 minutes.[7] Any incurred fees can be paid at the next service visit. // Tesla Supercharger network (wikipedia.org) Tesla supercharging stations charge with up to 145 kW of power distributed between two adjacent cars, with a maximum of 120 kW per car.[8][9][10] That is up to 16 times as fast as public charging stations; they take about 20 minutes to charge to 50%, 40 minutes to charge to 80%, and 75 minutes to 100%. The charging stations provide high-power direct-current (DC) charging power directly to the battery, bypassing the internal charging power supply.[11] The next version of Supercharging is expected to charge with more than 350 kW.[12][13] A few of the Tesla supercharging stations use solar panels to offset energy use and provide shade. In the next few years after 2016, Tesla plans to install additional solar power generation at superchargers, but this has not happened yet as of January 2017. For Model S and X vehicles ordered through 15 January 2017, the cost for using the superchargers for the life of the car is covered with the purchase of the car of 60 kilowatt-hours models or higher.[11] As of January 2017 the network is exclusive to Model S and Model X. Supercharging hardware is standard on Model S vehicles equipped with a battery of 70 kWh or greater, and optional (with a one-time payment of US$2,000) on Model S vehicles equipped with a 60 kWh battery. The Roadster is not equipped to charge from the Superchargers, but according to the automaker, all future Tesla models will be.[14][15][16] On the European market Tesla uses for its cars and Superchargers a slightly modified form of the standardized IEC 62196 Type 2 connector.[17] This results in a serious incompatibility with imported US Tesla cars. As of 2017, Tesla is the only automaker which offers based on the IEC 62196-2 specification the charging with direct current (DC). The specification IEC 62196-3 Combined Charging System (CCS) is favored as a multivendor direct current charging standard.[18]
