The Power to stop, drink and go

The power of charging at 350 kW is the power to stop, drink a coffee, and go. At maximum speed, you can be on your way within minutes. Competing networks provide less power, and charge points in cities are even slower. So the first time you use an IONITY charging point, try not to be surprised how quickly… it’s over.

The Power to stop, drink and go

Ionity provide the power, but your EV’s battery ultimately defines how fast it can charge. To charge in mere minutes, the battery must be in good condition, and specifically designed for high power charging. Ambient temperatures should be moderate, as extreme heat or cold can reduce charging speed. Charge to 80%, and then drive. At higher capacities, charging slows to reduce heat and increase battery longevity.

The Power to stop, drink and go

Good to know: Vehicle on-board systems also require power during charging – for example to maintain battery cells at their optimum temperature. This can lead to discrepancies between the energy being dispensed by the charger and the energy stored in the battery as displayed on the dashboard. Switching on additional equipment also requiring power – such as radios or air-conditioning – can also lead to even greater discrepancies.
