Tesla Opened Its First V4 Supercharger In The UK


Tesla formally launched the primary V4 Supercharging web site in the UK, which can be the seventh European station with the brand new dispensers.

The V4 Superchargers had been put in on the firm’s Tottenham Service Centre in Tottenham, about which we heard earlier this month.

The deployment of latest dispensers is one factor, however much more fascinating is the addition of a card cost technique, which is already accessible and was demonstrated by EVA England (@EVAEOfficial / X) in a brief video under.

As we will see, the person can cost a non-Tesla electrical automobile just by connecting it (CCS2 charging connector) and utilizing a contactless financial institution card reader (the show exhibits a value of 0.50 GBP/min, which is about $0.63 USD). In response to the take a look at with an electrical Kia, Tesla locks in a sure worth and, after the session, the distinction is returned to the person’s account.


There isn’t a necessity to make use of the Tesla app, nevertheless, this resolution can be accessible so far as we all know. In different phrases, there at the moment are three strategies:

  • Tesla EVs: merely hook up with a Supercharger
  • non-Tesla EVs:
    – Tesla app (scan QR code at a specific dispenser)
    – financial institution card reader/show (V4 stalls)

Listed here are just a few pictures of the brand new stalls and the show, shared by Esther Kokkelmans (@EstherKokkelman).


In response to earlier stories, one other V4 Supercharging web site within the UK may be situated in Swindon and is reportedly geared up with 16 350-kilowatt stalls.

At the moment, there are seven identified publicly accessible V4 Supercharging websites, and a further few are underneath building. We heard that the primary V4 dispensers are already put in in Norway and in Spain.


The variety of identified, publicly accessible V4 Supercharging websites:

  • Whole (identified): 7
  • Below building: 1 in Norway, 1 in Spain

The rollout of V4 Superchargers in Europe will assist to open the community to non-Tesla EVs as a result of the brand new dispensers have longer cables. There isn’t a subject with the charging customary, as each new Tesla and non-Tesla EVs are geared up with CCS2 charging inlets.

The V4 Superchargers are anticipated to be launched additionally in North America, bringing an extended cable size to deal with numerous non-Tesla electrical automobiles as properly. Nonetheless, there’s a compatibility subject, which have to be solved first. Tesla is fixing this by Magic Dock built-in CCS1 adapters first after which stand-alone NACS-to-CCS1 adapters (the primary can be accessible in 2024). Lastly, the swap from CCS1 to NACS on the automobile stage is the ultimate resolution. It will begin in 2025.
