De toekomstige elektrische auto's van Kia zullen extra snel worden opgeladen met 800 V


Super-speedy 800V charging won’t just be reserved forluxury EVsin the near future. As part of aroadmapoutlining its next wave of electrification, Kia has revealed (viaAutoblog) that some of its upcoming EVs will boast an 800V charging capacity — and not just in thehigh-end models. Instead, the architecture will be put into play when it “most closely matches” the usage expected from a given vehicle. You may see it in a coupe or a brawny sedan, but “cost-conscious buyers” and others driving more modest rides will have to make do with 400V.

As with 800V in vehicles like the Porsche Taycan and Audi’s upcomingE-Tron GT, the gains should be dramatic when you’re plugged into the right charger. Kia is aiming for top-ups under 20 minutes even as it provides a range over 310 miles. That’s still far slower than a gas pump, but it’s quick enough that you can make a reasonably short pit stop and expect to come back to a full charge.
