Hi Guys

I was wondering why my battery lease states that its a Q90 and my sticker on door pillar states that its a R110 ? The log book only says Dynamique nav. i believe the sticker and i assume that Q90 is the quick charge version and its doesnt charge especially quickly (on 43kw charger)

Does anybody know why there are differences.

Cheers

Caine

I cant remember off hand but def more than an hour i tend to use free 11kw so when i do use a 22kw i am giddy with the charging speed lol. i have no home charger- it reminds of when i used to buy jap import Evo's and Scoobys the log book was never right then either.

The Continental (og) motor can use (and I'm probably going to get this wrong and embarrass myself here) the windings of the motor as part of the charging system, to enable the faster charging.
I believe that’s how the AC “chameleon” charger works on all Zoes but, as you say, only the car with the og motor supports 43kW. In my limited understanding of these things, I think using the motor coils as inductors for the charging circuit is how they managed to build a compact 22kW AC charger and is a patented design.
