Militant EV driver!
Shame... If it was more like 36kWh (130 real world range) I would have definitely considered this for my next car. I'll just keep my LEAF until a 40kWh model comes along which more than likely will be the Model 3.28Kw battery, 105 mile real world range. I for one am disappointed. Hyundai IONIQ Electric Has A 28 kWh Battery, 105 Miles Real Range
This is very true. Lets see if any of the 3 Ioniqs tickles my tastebuds:... number of Ampera drivers ... with little else out there meeting their requirements....
Unfortunately it's 100kW CHAdeMO, not CCS. Is the 100kW CCS standard sorted yet? Won't be able to sell it in Europe with that connector so we're likely to only see 50kW charging.Another car that supports 100kw DC. I wonder how long it can actually pull that with its 28kWh battery before it tapers.
They already do on the Soul and isn't there at least one 100kW charger on the ground?Won't be able to sell it in Europe with that connector so we're likely to only see 50kW charging
It totally depends on the battery chemistry.pulling 100kW on a 28kWh battery is a bit pointless, it will be into taper before it even starts
Yes, however, the Soul is type-approved already so they can keep selling it. There are 100kW posts at Kia headquarters (interestingly, I am sure someone said they were multi-head with CCS as well ... but no idea if the CCS has 100kW too).They already do on the Soul and isn't there at least one 100kW charger on the ground?
Interesting, I can't find the chemistry for the ioniq (haven't looked hard, to be fair). Can you do a non-taper chemistry which is also air cooled (Leaf/Zoe etc.)It totally depends on the battery chemistry.
