Hyundai Confirms SAE Combo 100 kW Fast Charging For IONIQ Electric

Tue Jul 19, 2016 5:59 pm

Hyundai has made the choice of charging standard for its first all-electric model that will enter series production in the US. And as we discovered first hand at the 2016 NYIAS, we know for sure it’s not CHAdeMO.

The IONIQ Electric on the stage was equipped with SAE J1772 Combo inlet (also called CCS Combo) with Hyundai claiming 100 kW charging capability (20 minutes recharge up to 80% of 28 kWh battery).

“Charging the Ioniq Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery up to 80 percent only takes about 20 minutes using a SAE Combo Level 3 DC, 100 kW fast-charger. An integrated In-Cable Control Box (ICCB) also allows drivers to charge their Ioniq at a standard household electric socket.”

Some thoughts about move to the CCS Combo was also recently shared by InsideEVs’ contributor Tom Moloughney, when we spotted the AC Type 2-based CCS Combo inlet in Europe from the Geneva show.

As one can see, there is no space for an additional CHAdeMO inlet, and we can be sure that Hyundai now joins the CCS team (at least in Europe and North America).

Another thought that arose immediately after we realized what Hyundai did, is if Kia (partner of Hyundai) will also follow the SAE J1772 Combo.

Great news for Hyundai ioniq then. It's certainly bridging the gap with Bolt EV.

If certain provinces and states are a little slow to provide readily available charging stations that are easily accessible everywhere the 80% charge in 20 minutes is a brilliant strategy

I wonder who will be producing (and selling, and installing) the 100 kW DCFCs? Most fast chargers today top out at 50 kW. Does anybody know what vendors currently have chargers that charge at (about) 100 kW? (Ignoring whatever Tesla uses obviously, it being a proprietary 'standard'.)

Adding new info just available (which is why this thread has been 'bumped'):

Well, it looks like super-duper high-speed DCFC charging is right around the corner. ChargePoint will be rolling it out (?installed?) in July 2017. There will be liquid-cooled cables/handles! It looks like plug types can be a mix of any of : CHAdeMO, CCS, or Tesla.

ChargePoint has just announced their "Express Plus" DCFC "ultra-fast" charging architecture/solution. Up to 400 kW charging at one plug, modular solution(s) (such as : start w/ a pair of stations, then later add a "PowerCube" that can run 8 stations where any one plug can get 187 kW max, and all 8 together can pull 125 kW at the same time, OR have a PowerCube running 4 stations, which can provide 312 kW max, or 187 kW on all 4 simultaneously, OR ...etc...

ChargePoint Express Plus, the ultra-fast DC charging solution that is ready for the electric cars, buses and trucks of today and tomorrow. Express Plus can charge today’s newest electric vehicles, such as the Chevy Bolt EV, at their maximum rate; is equipped to charge upcoming EVs such as the Tesla Model 3 and is ready to deliver maximum charging speed to EVs coming to market in the years to come. A modular platform designed for businesses and charging centers along major roadways or transit depots, Express Plus can deliver up to 400 kilowatts

EvGo is opening up a 350 kW, 4 charger station in Baker, CA, in July.

EvGo 'has broken ground' on a 350 kW, 4 charger station in Baker, CA, which is estimated to be finished in June. There has been no news of what company will be supplying the chargers.

I wonder how CP & EVgo are planning on handling this? There *is* no 350 kW standard just yet - for any EV plug (including Tesla). Are they just going to lay down cable that will be able to handle that current, and install 100 kW chargers?
