Find here a list of the fastest-charging EVs available for sale on the present car market.
How quickly you can charge your electric vehicle on the way to your destination determines how quickly you get there. The charging speed is equally important for electric car owners as the driving range. MotorTrend editors have taken the trouble to compile an interesting list of the fastest-charging EVs you can order or buy today.
Those cars on the list include the ones with the highest peak charge rate: the higher the rate, the faster your vehicle charges, and the shorter the time you’ll wait at the charging station/point.
Like EPA-rated fuel economy, the highest peak charge rate is measured by the manufacturer under ideal conditions (optimal temperature, declared power output of an EV charger).
The rating in real conditions under which you make your road trip and charge the battery will likely differ. Moreover, the automaker can change rates via over-the-air updates given the battery health data. In other words, any peak charge rate is not an absolute figure.
Well, the TOP 10 fastest-charging EVs are the following:
