Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 99.8kWh and a net capacity of 98kWh, meaning you have a 1.8kWh buffer for protection. (1.8%).
The WLTP range is 563 km (350 mi). The consumption is 17.4kWh/100km 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 233kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 50 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 21 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 71%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 161kW. Each charge session would take 26 minutes and 38 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 25kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 17 minutes. This trip will require two charge session(s) charging from 1% to 79%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 57 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 8 hours and 54 minutes.
