One of the biggest electric car challenges today is loading process. With very little combustion infrastructure, especially in countries like Spain, the loading schedule is very long. For example, to fully charge the Jaguar I-Pace 90 kWh battery, we need a connection of 10 hours. Slower charging in garages and homes is not a big problem though Yes, it is a great obstacle in long journeys. Until now, of course. They have a BMW and Porsche solution.
Two German manufacturers are testing High-speed ultra high-speed and high-speed charging system. The system called FastCharge, was not twice considered about the name, and the German Government received a grant of 7.8 million euros. The FastCharge loading station first opened its doors to Jettingen-Scheppach DCS Combo Direct Current Chargers have a maximum power of 450 kW. This power is higher than nine times faster in Spain, with a maximum of 50 kW in the best cases.
100 km autonomy in 3 minutes and battery in less than fifteen minutes. They want an electric charge as easy as you can to fill your current car tank.
BMW and Porsche have demonstrated the potential of this technology because their chargers have been released with two electric prototypes. Its 800 volt and electric batteries were designed to digest "binge" electrons. The Porsche Taycan test mule has a power capacity of 400 kW to travel within 100 km of less than three kilometers. The ultimate goal of FastCharge is to load an electric car quickly and easily as an internal combustion vehicle.
This pioneer loading station is currently free. It is capable of detecting the maximum power that can be recovered, minimizing the physically charging limits of battery life. Cars are not prepared to charge 450 kW of power remotely. The Jaguar I-Pace power can be loaded up to a maximum of 100 kW and Tesla accepts a fast charge of more than 120 kW. Family I.D. Volkswagen will receive fast recharges of more than 150 kW, according to the latest data offered by the brand.
BMW i3 picks up 70% of the battery in 15 minutes. The boot has the same battery, it can not be recovered.
In a utopic future, electric cars will be charged at fast charging stations at fast charging stations. The key to making electric transport is to work outside the urban environment. Nowadays, electric bottles batteries are batteries of electric cars. However, FastCharge advances are proof the rhythm of the progress of technological development of electric vehicles. It might be better to wait a year for your technology to evolve, since the ordinary look takes on giant steps.
