Tesla’s V4 Supercharger Site Opens in Netherlands
Tesla’s V4 Supercharger.
On March 15, Tesla inaugurated its first V4 Supercharger station in Harderwijk, the Netherlands, which boasts 16 V4 Superchargers.
Although the V4 can output a charge of 350 kW, the initial output is limited to 250 kW.
However, Tesla has now confirmed that the new site is open to all electric vehicle brands that support CCS2. Users have given positive feedback about the longer charging cables, which are between 9.5 and 9.8 feet long (2.9 to 3 meters) – 3.5 feet longer than the cables on the V3 Supercharger.
The V4’s stall design is completely new, with no void in the center and a charging cable holder on the side of the stall. The V4 has a maximum output of 615 Amps and 1,000 Volt DC. This theoretically means it can output 615 kW.
In Europe, the V4 has the CCS2 connector, while in North America, it has the Magic Dock, which automatically switches between CCS2 and Tesla’s NACS connector depending on the vehicle being charged. It is encouraging to see Tesla allowing other brands to use its latest technology.
While some Tesla owners may not be thrilled about potential waiting times, more charging sites will ultimately reduce wait times. With 16 stalls at the Harderwijk site, waiting should not be an issue.

Videos reviews of the V4 Supercharger have already been posted on YouTube, and people are sharing their experiences. It will take some time before the V4 becomes common, but for now, it is fascinating to see the future of charging technology in action.
