BMW Developing FastCharge to Nail the 450 kW 15-Minute Charge

By Ray Prince BMW is advancing its charging technology plans, with a new collaboration alongside key automakers and technology firms to develop a “FastCharge” system capable of hitting 450 kW.
The joint consortium, joined by names such as Porsche, Allegro, and Siemens, among others, are conducting joint research on improving charging rates using existing infrastructure at a higher voltage and amps. The expectation is to produce a 15-minute charge for electric cars.
Other research is focusing on the physical limits of its charging equipment such as plugs and cables to withstand such power, roughly three times the charging capacity of today’s stations.
“The collaborative
