Two unique “gas stations” are located in San Francisco. With their help, you can recharge the “green” car in just ten minutes. The speeds are unprecedented, but at the present time there are no cars on the electric car market that could use such powerful stations.

The German company Volkswagen, which has embarked on the electrification of the global fleet, continues to work on the appropriate infrastructure. For example, in the United States, a new gas station was launched, where, in addition to the standard charging plugs, there are two stations for ultrafast charging. To replenish the energy spent by electric cars, it will take only 10-15 minutes. The power of each of the two EZS, opened in San Francisco, reaches about 350 kW.

 The specialized business publication Electrek told about the most powerful refueling for electric vehicles in the world. According to foreign media reports, today there are no instances on the market for environmentally friendly machines that could use the proposed capacities.

Such stations generate a voltage of 800 volts, while the batteries of electric vehicles on the market are rated at 400 volts (150 kW power). A year and a half later, the situation should change. The new station will benefit the owners of the future Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT.
