One question that many people ask before buying an electric car is which cars recharge the fastest, and in this regard it is good to know that the speed of recharging changes depending on whether it is done at home or at a public charging point or column.
In any case, before talking about charging speed, it is important to consider the type of current: today most electric cars use either direct current (fast charging) or alternating current, for a more moderate charging speed. The only and few models that only run on alternating current are those with low power and small batteries.
Alternating current is the mechanism used by wallboxes and home charging stations that can reach up to 43kW, but stop at 11kW or 22kW depending on the power accepted by the charger on the car: better not to expect very fast recharging. DC fast charging of charging stations is also based on the power accepted by the car, while offering a range from 50 kW to 350 kW.
Therefore, those who want to recharge their electric car quickly need to know where to go to be able to use all the power available to the vehicle without being restricted by the grid. Only those who know the technical characteristics of the machine will be able to recharge it quickly and without any nasty surprises.
The 10 ‘fastest’ electric cars in charging
There are many electric car models that are particularly fast in charging, although it is good to know that only with Ionity and Tesla super chargers do you get enough energy to make the most of the car’s power. We at DazeTechnology have compiled a ranking of superfast and fast cars, which we offer below.
Superfast charging cars
Those who really don’t have time to waste and are looking for an electric car with superfast charging can look to the following models on the market:
- Audi e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT: 270 kW (between 11 and 22 kW AC);
- Porsche Taycan: between 225 and 270 kW depending on the version (between 11 and 22 kW AC);
- Tesla Model 3, Y, S and X: 250 kW (16,5 kW AC);
- Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5: 239 kW (10,5 kW AC).
Fast charging cars
Other electric car models that offer good performance in terms of power and charging speed and that we can consider fast are:
- Mercedes EQS: 200 kW (between 11 and 22 kW AC);
- BMW iX: between 150 and 195 kW depending on version (11 kW alternatively);
- Mercedes EQE: 170kW (between 11 and 22 kW AC);
- BMW iX3: 150 kW (between 7,4 and 11 kW AC);
- Volvo C40 and XC40 Recharge: 150 kW (11 kW AC);
- Audi e-tron and e-tron S (+ Sportback version): between 120 and 150 kW depending on the version (between 11 and 22 kW AC);
- Ford Mustang Mach-E: between 115 and 150 kW depending on the version (alternative from 11 kW)
