The charging network Allego has rolled out its first 175-kilowatt
ultra-fast charging stations—dubbed "Ultra E"—at its first location in
Kleinosthei, along the A3 motorway near Frankfurt.
Allego plans to upgrade half of them to 350-kilowatt service later this
To put this in context, the Bolt has a 60kWh battery. At 350kW, that's
about 10 minutes to a full charge (although, I'm sure you can only go to
about 80% at full current). Anyway, a 10 minute break after driving 2.5
- 3 hours (at US speed limits) sounds pretty sweet.
Just imagine the practicality of the Bolt and other high kWh models if
we (the US) had that kind of charging along our freeways.
