Tesla’s newest Superchargers are lighter, faster, and cooled by liquid.

Other changes in the latest Supercharger version are minor, but smart. The controller’s buttons have been updated, and the new Superchargers have air vents at the bottom as well. At last count (in May), Tesla has 437 Supercharger stations around the world with 2,395 Superchargers. There’s no news about which stations will get the new liquid-cooled Superchargers. We don’t know if they will be used only for new charging stations or if any of the existing stations will be retrofitted. Right now, the new Superchargers are reportedly only open for use at just one station, in Tesla’s hometown of Mountain View, California.
