What's the meaning of this Super charging number 78 Kw + 57 kWh 216 mi/hr

whats the meaning of this

Super charging @ 78 Kw + 57 kWh 216 mi/hr

My assumption is currently its supercharging @ 78kW, And also the Supercharging is capable of charging + 57 kWh too.
But the Model X software is restricting to charge only 78 kW instead of 135 kWh. Is that correct ?

No. You've already added 57 kWh of energy to the battery.

Charging rate is 78 kW which is equivalent to 216 miles per hour (based on rated kWh per mile)
You’ve added:
57 kWh

@Model D
Not quite--78 kW is the instantaneous rate and 216 MPH is the session average.

The Supercharger communicates with the battery and determines the best rate of charging at that instant taking into account the current state of charge, the battery temperature, and other factors. It will charge fastest when the battery pack is at an optimal temperature and at a very low state of charge. The rate decreases as the battery gets more charge.
