Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 80kWh and a net capacity of 74kWh, meaning you have a 6kWh buffer for protection. (7,5%). The WLTP range varies from 461 to 453 km (287-282 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 16,1kWh/100km for the basic version and 16,3kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 61 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 30 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 1% to 61% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 102kW. Each charge session would take 26 minutes and 4 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 52 minutes to drive. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 1% to 54%. The total time lost for charging will be 92 minutes.
