Some Tesla stations to limit supercharging to 80%

Electric vehicle-maker Tesla is updating some of its supercharger stations to limit the top state of charge (SoC) to 80 per cent at busy stations to reduce wait times.

“The limit will be enforced at 8 per cent of the stations 24/7, while the rest will be affected by the limitation at peak hours. Tesla says owners that stop by at an affected station will receive a notification,” the Engadget reported on Saturday.

The EV-maker claimed the new feature, combined with other recent updates to its supercharger network, may cause a 34 per cent improvement in throughput at the charging stations.
