Geely reveals 600 kW EV charging technology – 20% faster, 30% more range, 300km range in 5 minutes

Geely has unveiled its new 600 kW charging technology developed by its subsidiary company Viridi E-mobility Technology (VREMT). The new fast charger is said to be capable of providing up to 300 km of electric driving range in just five minutes.

Currently, the fast-charging technology is only available in China and is ready for mass production according to VREMT. The new fast-charger is said to be 20% faster and is capable of adding 30% more range.

So far only the Zeekr’s 001 EV is capable of charging at this speed, thanks to its Qilin long-range battery by Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited (CATL). The Qilin batteries are expected to be mass-produced and will be available by 2023.

Upcoming Geely EVs will also adopt the latest battery technology from CATL capable of returning up to 1,000 km of electric driving range. The Zeekr 001 EV has been earmarked to be the first mass-produced model to be fitted with the new batteries. Eventually, they will also find their way into the new Zeekr 009 EV MPV.

The long-range is the result of efficient volume utilisation and high energy density. The battery pack’s design also allows for various components including structural protection, high-voltage connections, and thermal vents to be strategically arranged, increasing battery capacity by 6%.

So far, we’ve seen XPeng Motors’ 480 kW fast-chargers offering more than 200 km of electric driving range with just five minutes of charging but expect that to change real soon!

    Good for Geely to continue doing research, and for Proton to benefit later on (as we patiently wait).

    Even a Peugeot EV 2022 only support high watt, but still a slower 100,000watt, 100kW DC charging.

    https://paultan.org/2022/09/13/peugeot-e-308-pure-ev-debuts-156-hp-260-nm-over-400-km-range-wltp-20-80-charge-in-under-25-mins/

    600,000 watt, a 600kW DC Charging?
    Good, 6x faster, but eqv to 800x of 750watt 1hp A/C. .

    No need low spec slow charging.
    Do we need more hazardous nuclear power plant to support?

      Nuclear fission reactors aren’t hazardous if the waste are handled properly. Besides, with small modular reactors (smr) is the best non renewable energy producer if you compare it with coal/fossil fuels

    Petrol refuel @30L/min, makan minyak 10km/L also can do 300km/min refuel.
    Electron refuel @ up to 300km/5 min or 50kWh/5min.

    It is still >5x slower.
    Feels like pre-1960s.. slow life.

    Tipping point for EV will come and go and some people will still prefer ICEV, that is fine.

    Just like I prefer a mechanical watch because it has soul (cannot be measured), even though it is more expensive to own and is less accurate than a RM50 quartz watch.

      Come back and let’s talk about “soul” after the government has removed fuel subsidy
