We have seen Tesla make claims that their new lithium-ion battery tech can charge cars in less than 10 minutes. Kia is coming to the EV market with claims that its upcoming electric car can charge in less than 20 minutes.
South Korean carmakers, Kia Motors has confirmed that they will be launching a new electric car next year. This car will be based on the “Imagine” concept that the company showcased at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2019.
This new EV will feature the next-gen charging tech and a brand new platform that is made specifically for EVs.
Now, the all-new electric car from Kia named the Kia CV will be the flagship model of the company. It will be using Hyundai’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that relies on an 800V architecture. This very platform will enable the car to recharge in less than 20-minutes time.
This E-GMP platform can be utilized in Porsche’s EV, the Porsche Taycan, and officers. Kia Motors have confirmed that the Kia CV will use the identical 800V battery tech. It can provide a “sub-20-minute recharge time” utilizing an appropriate fast-charging community.
The officers from the South Korea-based vehicle firm have additionally confirmed that the automobile will ship “around 300 miles” of vary. Might go from 0-62mph in underneath three seconds, which is analogous to the Tesla Model S rivaling Taycan.
