  • Too good to be true I'm afraid. There is no way to charge a 63 kWh battery in 6 minutes without a 630,000 watt power source! A standard US wall outlet can only deliver a maximum of 1,800 watts. The maximum power from even a 220V, 30 Amp, electric clothes dryer outlet is only 6,600 watts.

  • I don't see how it is possible to fully charge the battery in six minutes without a very high power (i.e. high voltage, current or both) electric source. This leads me to the conclusion that the whole story is likely made up.

  • Author’s reply » This story is not as straight forward as we would like to see it as well. This particular claim about charging time is published only in this article - it can be achieved, maybe, only in the lab conditions. But we have not seen it in other DBM Energy press. All other claims were confirmed by the German ministries and published on their websites?!

     

    We are monitoring the situation with this company.

  • Well, I hope it is true. Battery limitations and cost have been the Achilles heel of electric cars for over 100 years.

  • why are the naysayers refering only to home charging? Do you fill your ice vehicle at home? no? where then...a gas station.....well with the range claimed then why not charge at an electric station? duh.,,..,.,.,ya i know....who wants to wait 6 minutes to charge? ever time how long it takes to fill a 20 gallon tank? Is 6 minutes really that much different?
