The first official deliveries of Tesla Model 3 electric vehicles to Europe have already taken place, so that enthusiasts have had the opportunity to check how their samples are charged from local charging stations. First of all, we are talking about high-speed, high-speed charging for 175 kW (CCS), and not about household networks.

So, thanks to the CCS (Type 2) port, the Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle was able to reach 126 kW, which is 5 kW higher than the same model received under the same conditions in the US Tesla Supercharger network.

The electric car received the charging power in the Dutch FastNed network, which is designed for charging power up to 175 kW, so there is nothing remarkable for the network itself as a result.

For the electric car itself, the result is rather interesting because in Europe such an electric car can be charged faster on third-party charges than on the branded Tesla Supercharger.

It is noteworthy that previously the American automaker stated that the Tesla Model S and Model X electric cars with a CCS port can charge up to a maximum of 120 kW, and the limitation lies in the electric car itself, and not in the CCS connector or charging network.
