Today There are many car manufacturers working on charging systems for high-powered electric cars, which will enable much faster loading times in the future. These projects will be very important for the development of the electric car market in the coming years, because one of the points that slows down its growth is a high load time compared to the thermal model.
Today, the brand that offers more power in street electric cars is a Porsche, rather than the Taycan model (which will be available later this year) allows power up to 350 kW; or whatever is the same, recover 80% of its autonomy in just 15 minutes (remember that the battery will be 95 kWh, which should be more than 500 km in real conditions).
After our Porsche found Tesla, which recently revealed its Superchargers V3, which one able to reach around 250 kW of power, imagine only Model 3 can be utilized (Model S and Model X which are equipped with a new generation Tesla engine capable of reaching 200 kW, although it is expected that restyling will be accepted by both models at the end of the year). access to major powers).
However, Audi, the third brand with the highest load power in electric production cars (your e-tron model can reach 150 kW) argue that the high power achieved by the Tesla model is really meaningless, because this figure is maintained for a very limited period of time, falling rapidly.
During an e-tron presentation in North America, Matthew Mostafaei, an e-tron manager and connected Audi vehicle in the United States, showed the public an attractive table where the charging rates of several electric models were compared. According to Mostafaei, Tesla is able to achieve a higher power than them; However, the loading rate dropped dramatically during the session.
By comparison, the Audi e-tron can last above 140 kW for a long time (up to around 80% autonomy), something because of their advanced battery cooling technology, as well as the wide margins of the package (although it has a capacity of 95 kWh, the "bottom" part of the battery has an 8% reserve and the top 4%, which explains that when the truth is model autonomy is "only" 417 km WLTP). This has positive consequences as a faster load and a longer useful life, because it has a higher limit of battery degradation will be less than other electric cars.
