And as you may also expect from the company, the charger is not cheap.

The system is a full -featured Tesla charging station that makes use of not only the brand-new V 3 charging platform but also solar power and batteries to help reduce the need for grid-based electricity. Part of the magic of the V 3 Supercharger is its ability to deliver a charge rate of 250 kW.

Tesla has opened a rare new V 3 Supercharger station after launching the new generation of its EV charging infrastructure months ago. It was worth the wait because this new Supercharger station in Las Vegas looks like the electric car charging station of the future with solar and battery power.

Tesla announced on Thursday that its latest V3 Supercharging station was open in Las Vegas, near the High Roller and the Linq hotel.

Tesla is working with Caesars Entertainment -- the company behind Caesars Palace and the Linq, among other things -- on the project as part of Caesars' initiative to reduce its carbon footprint by 30% by 2025.

The new Vegas charging station has 24 V3 chargers, each of which is capable of adding the equivalent of 180 miles of range in just 15 minutes of charge time. The Linq station is technically the third charging station to get the new V3 Supercharger, but the other two stations have only seen partial roll-outs.

Part of the magic of the V3 Supercharger is its ability to deliver a charge rate of 250 kW. This is made possible in part by the switch to new liquid-cooled charge cables. In addition to the V3 Superchargers, Tesla installed 15 Level 2 wall chargers, for those Tesla owners who aren't in as much of a hurry.

EVgo and Electrify America let you charge your EV with just one account.
EVgo and Electrify America have announced a partnership that will make it less of a hassle for EV owners to find a charge. Drivers will be able to access public chargers on either network without the need to create a new membership or pay additional fees, the companies said. The agreement covers over 3,000 DC fast chargers at more than 1,000 stations across the US. This is a good, and necessary step. One reason that Tesla dominates EV sales is because of its extensive and very rapid Supercharging network, which we called its killer app. "Third-party charging stations frankly don't cut it for long trips," said Engadget's Roberto Baldwin.
