Tesla ready to roll out massive Cybertruck charging improvements

Tesla is ready to roll out massive Cybertruck charging improvements that the company hinted at last April.

After some complaints about the Cybertruck’s compatibility with Superchargers, discovered by Out of specification During its Ocean to Ocean Challenge, Tesla said it would provide various solutions to ensure adequate and safe charging of the all-electric pickup.

The improvements came from issues where the Cybertruck exceeded a site’s power limit and charging cables overheated. This caused problems with several stops during the trip, which took the pickup across the United States, from the West Coast to the East Coast.

These issues were caused by the lack of power when the Cybertruk was in a low state of charge (SoC), and Tesla said it would fix the issues in an Over-the-Air update during the second quarter. .

However, there are less than two weeks left in the quarter, leaving little time for Tesla to fulfill its wish.

It appears the update will be rolling out soon, according to Cybertruck Chief Engineer Wes Morrill, who said the update is “coming soon.”

The problems stemmed from an issue with the Cybertruck’s charging curve, which is said to help the vehicle “unlock up to 154 miles recovered in 15 minutes.” A bug in the Cybertruck would lock the stand to a maximum of 100A.

This appears to be one of several growing pains Tesla has faced after launching and delivering the Cybertruck to customers for the first time in November. Of course, everyone expected there to be issues from the start, and the automaker is rolling out fixes for those issues as they’re ready to be fixed.
