BMW and Porsche announced 450 kW charging - in 3 minutes 62 miles of added range. Batteries brought to 80% capacity in 15 minutes
In 16 months and 31,000 miles my own personal experience is that I travel not very often to the point that I need to use the Tesla Supercharger Network. A few trips during the year, and when we go to our vacation home in the Berkshires. 90% of my charging is done in my garage. I am also able to occupy myself for the 20-30 minutes needed to charge my 90kW battery to the point I feel comfortable unplugging and heading towards my next destination.
That said, this is a significant advancement and here is to hoping Tesla can keep pace with these advances.
In prior posts centered around whether or not current Tesla owners would consider purchasing other electric vehicles made by other manufacturers, my answer was that I am a true believer in the open unfettered marketplace. Yes, I would consider getting the best bang for my $$$. Having and using autopilot on a frequent basis - every day, that would be a feature I am not willing to compromise on when purchasing my next vehicle which will be electric.
I am looking forward to when EV's can be replenished in the same amount of time as gas powered vehicles. That would be awesome.
Best to all,
