Actually the Model 3 charges faster than claimed.
Tesla: Supercharge to gain 170 miles in 30 minutes.
@Bighorn and @SamO have reported charging rates as high as 118 kW or up to 59 kwh in 30 minutes.
At 234 watt hours per rated mile, 59 kwh gets you up to 252 miles in 30 minutes.
In reality, 118 kw rate will taper off over time as the battery pack charges up but you should definitely get more than 170 miles in 30 minutes.
Underpromise and over deliver. Go figure.
