Your life: energized.
Everything is getting more complicated, say many. Nothing is what it used to be, say others. The world is getting more fascinating, is what we say. The new generation of the sports car is electric. The benefits are perfectly clear: lower local emissions, same driving pleasure. Bringing new technologies from the race track to the road. With digital services to connect the sports car to the world. Where do we get the energy for it all? From the electrical socket. What sounds so simple, should also feel so simple. And charging your sports car should be just as natural as charging your smartphone any time, anywhere. Perhaps even a little bit smarter.
Technology is good when it adapts to us – not vice versa. When we interact with it completely intuitively – and it makes our everyday life easier. That is exactly our goal with
Your home: smart. Your sports car: ditto. Where other cars sit idle waiting for the next drive, you can use your pit stop at home to charge your
Where wall mounting is not possible because, for example, you park in a carport rather than a garage, the optional charging pedestal provides an alternative solution.
We are working with partners, such as Ionity and Electrify America, on the construction of the most high-powered rapid charging network for electric vehicles. By the end of 2019, thousands of charging points enabling fast and flexible charging will be at your disposal. At these planned and partly already instituted rapid charging stations, it will be possible to charge multiple vehicles at once using the available 800-volt charging technology. The stations will be accessible to the public and spaced approximately 120km apart.
Even more charging points for plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles are there for you to use with the
Then, of course, there are those days when arriving at your destination quickly and conveniently has to take priority. With
The reason for this smart interface between the driver and vehicle is quite simple: the focal point of our ingenious total concept is not our technology or engineering prowess, but always you, the driver. That's why we are taking our expansion of the infrastructure another step further – to wherever you want to go. With, for example, the
We call it: the

The specified charging outputs and times (hour/minutes) are dependent on various factors: in general, the charging output and time can vary due to physical and chemical limits, depending on factors such as the available output of the country-specific energy infrastructure, the customer's own domestic installation, the temperature, interior pre-conditioning and charging status, as well as the age of the battery. Charging times may therefore be significantly higher than those specified. To achieve the optimum value of the specified DC charging time (DC = direct current) for a charge status increase from 5 to 80%, a CCS (combined charging system) fast-charging pedestal with > 270kW and > 850V is required, as well as a battery temperature of 30°–35°C. The charging status when commencing charging must not exceed 5%. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use fast DC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range. The predominant use of CCS fast charging pedestals leads to a long-term increase in charging times. For regular fast DC charging, we recommend a maximum charging output of 50kW. When charging in a domestic environment, AC charging (AC = alternating current) is recommended. Using an (AC) industrial electrical outlet will result in improved efficiency and a much shorter charging time compared to using a household socket.
