The Rimac Fridge It is undoubtedly one of the most impressive supercars of the moment. The second production model Rimac It has four electric motors capable of developing 1.914 CV y 2.360 Nm of torque. And even its charging power is extraordinary: up to 500 kW.
At the moment, there are no public charging points that can deliver that charging power. Some charging points Ionity They are capable of reaching up to 350 kW. And Maté Rimac himself shared in Facebook what it’s like to charge your latest creation at one of the fastest charging points in Europe.
With a 32% battery, the charging power was 311 kW, which is already a milestone. And it wasn’t until 62% charged that you could see a 333 kW power delivery. It is something exceptional. And it’s probably the first time Ionity has delivered that power commercially.
Ultra fast charging technology is real, but it does not reach the public
At 80% load, power was still a not inconsiderable 141 kW, which is impressive considering the level of battery charge. At this point, the car had recovered 91 kWh in just 21 minutes. There is nothing.
The charging power of an electric car is useless if the charging point cannot deliver it. Currently, in Europe, Ionity is the only network that offers in some points the possibility of charging up to 350 kW. The possibility that Rimac offers with the Refrigerator to increase up to 500 kW is designed for the future, so that over time the car does not become obsolete.
In the end, the most striking thing is not the possibility offered by Rimac Nevera itself and its technological superiority in that aspect, a supercar worth nearly two million euros, but rather it shows that the technology exists and is possible to almost fully recharge a huge battery in just 20 minutes.
Now, all that remains is for manufacturers and charging networks to extend these charging powers to their new models and installations and, of course, to make them affordable. This last point will be the most delicate and difficult to achieve.
