It later peaked at 400 kW and, after about 3 minutes and 40 seconds, 440 kW was slightly exceeded. “In the past it would have taken an hour to charge a battery from 10% up to 80% with a fast charge. Moving forward, we will make these ultra-fast refills on all of our cars, making them fully charged in 20-30 minutes at the most.“Promised He Xiaopeng.

So far, the Chinese manufacturer has installed its charging stations in 337 cities in its country, and of these thousand columns, almost 800 are S2 rapid chargers with a charging power of 180 kW. The S4s will be installed in the ten cities where more G9 models will be ordered, but not only; also in the main cities and along the busiest motorways, in 2023, other recharging points will be created. By 2025 XPeng expects to have 2,000 ultrafast top-ups in surplus.
