Kia will equip its electric vehicles with ultra-fast 800 V charging system

Kia Motors announced that it plans to install ultra-fast charging systems on all of its future electric cars, not limited to only flagship models.

The South Korean automaker claims that the innovation will reduce charging time and reduce the mass of the transmission.

Kia plans to start producing next-generation electric cars in 2021, and by 2025 introduce at least 11 models, some of which will receive a 800-volt charging system. The company has not yet submitted a list of models, but announced that they will be created on the basis of a new platform designed specifically to blur the boundaries between passenger and sports cars.

Engineers are also developing battery technology that will allow them to travel up to 500 km non-stop, and with ultra-fast system charging it takes less than 20 minutes to replenish energy. Although it is still longer than a traditional refueling, but given the amount of stored energy, this is a fairly short pit stop.

The company expects that the development of this area will convince customers to abandon gasoline once and for all. Earlier, Kia representatives also said that in order to increase the mileage of electric vehicles produced, solar panels will be installed on their roofs and hoods.
