Is electrical charging slow? The Chinese brand wants to end its fame and allows 432 kilometers of autonomy while “having coffee”

When discussing the pros and cons of purchasing an electric car, charging infrastructure, range, or recharging speed are some of the points that generate the most controversy. Slow charging of electric vehicles has gained a lot of popularity, but China wants to put an end to this problem once and for all, by offering amazing recharging numbers: from 10 to 80% of the battery in 11 minutes and 28 seconds.

Zeekr, a Chinese brand owned by Geely Group, was responsible for the branding with its 001 model, which is on sale in several European markets. The electric vehicle recently received an update that incorporated a new 95 kWh LFP (lithium phosphate) battery from Chinese company CATL, the world's largest battery producer and supplier to Tesla, among other brands, along with an 800-volt architecture.

While charging, the 001 reached a maximum power of 546.4 kW connected to a 600 kW Zeekr V3 fast charger. In fact, with between 10 and 35% of the battery, the electric car was able to maintain a charging power of more than 540 kilowatts, which then gradually decreased to levels of 250 kilowatts.

Five minutes after connecting the car to electricity, it already has a range of 264 kilometers of autonomous driving; After 10 minutes, he reached 432 km; In operation at 10 and 80% of the battery, it regained a range of 473 km.

This new battery has temperature control technology, which helps keep charging speeds at the highest possible level in extremely cold conditions. In fact, Zeker stated that if recharging was done at -10 degrees Celsius, the car would take less than 30 minutes to recharge between 10 and 80%.

If you compare the numbers achieved by Zeekr with other electric cars, the recently renewed Porsche Taycan can charge with a power of up to 320 kilowatts. So, at a temperature of 15 ° C, the German model takes 18 minutes to recharge from 10 to 80%. Taking the BMW i5 as a reference, it can go from 10% to 80% within 30 minutes, if ideal conditions are met, supporting a charging power of up to 205 kW DC.
