Hi,
Looking at buying a used 17 plate I3.
Does the i3 94AH come with rapid charge as standard now, not an add on extra?
Thanks.

I was looking at a 14/15 age i3, the plug was only the type 2 plug no CCS so does that mean it wouldn't charge very quickly?

Sorry for the noob level question

Yes, DC rapid charging was an option on the early i3s.

I assume it's 11kw max charge rate on all the non-ccs-equipped cars, assuming you can find a three phase source.

The very earliest cars didn't even do 3 Phase at all from memory. So you'll be stuck with up to 7kW AC and that's it.

The standard cable is single phase and will charge at 7 kW maximum which is 3.75 hours to 80%.
