range of 350 miles... My prius needs around 0.5MJ/Km mechanic energy to
move.. If that car needs the same, then it will need around 280MJ to
move those 350 miles (350miles * 1.6km/mile * 0.5MJ/km)
10 minutes = 600 seconds...
280MJ/600 seconds =466666 WATT... 466KW.. around 660 HP... now, I want
to see the plug for this charger :)
Over here you usually manage around 3.6KW through one single 16A
circuit... I don't know how much current you can carry at the 110V side
of this world, but at 16 amps around half of it...
anyways.. you can't just drop by at your friend that lives 200 miles
away and use their socket in the garden/garage to recharge that thing in
10 minutes :))

(phase). Not exactly available in most residential areas...
BTW most US circuits are ~120V 60Hz 15 Amps 1800 Watts but the current
draw is usually restricted to 12.5 amps and 1500 watts for safety.
This is why heaters, hair dryers, etc. are always rated for 1500
Watts. I strongly recommend to anyone having electrical work done in
the home to have 20 Amp outlets and circuit breakers installed along
with the required 12AWG wire. The benefits are better plug retention
and less light dimming when a major appliance on that circuit is turned
on. 20 Amp (NEMA 5-20) outlets are recognizable by the § | slots.
- HUMMMMMM.... I like the body design of the Obvio 012 better than the
828, but would take either one over my current 2001 G1 Classic since
they can run on CNG. (: Of course of the EV versions were not soooo
expensive, I would go for one of them instead.
