Are you fascinated by electric cars? Wondering about Ultra-fast 150kW chargers? If so, this article will help you get up to speed.

At the forefront of the electric car charging revolution is Ionity, a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz, Ford, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche. It is aiming to install charging stations every 100 miles along European motorways and A-roads, and has positioned 14 of its 350kW chargers in the UK so far, with plans for a total of 40 stations. Recent reports suggest that Ionity is adding new stations in Polmadie and Alnwick.

But which electric cars can use these ultra-fast 350kW chargers? Well, currently, no cars can utilize the maximum charging speeds offered by Ionity, as these entail huge amounts of electric power. Instead, these cars require a Combined Charging System (CCS) connector in order to take advantage of the power provided.

Cars equipped with CCS connectors can use Ionity chargers which optimize charging speed based on the car’s maximum capability. Some cars that are compatible with Ionity chargers include the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron SUV, BMW i3, Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia e-Niro, Mercedes-Benz EQC, and the Jaguar I-Pace.

It’s also worth noting that Kia offers discounted access to the Ionity network with its Kia Charger service.

The advantages of the Ionity 350kW chargers are obvious; they are the foundation for increased electric car adoptions. We have seen this at CJ Electrical Solutions already. Our team installs, maintains and repairs Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers in both residential and commercial settings.

In conclusion, the world of electric car charging has come a long way. Ultra-fast 150kW chargers, supported by CCS connectors, offer revolutionary charging speeds. More speeds bring with them more options and convenience. Plus, Ionity offers discounted access to their network. Ultimately, this spurs the development of electric cars into the future.
