In a significant development for the electric vehicle industry, Polestar has conducted an extensive fast charging test on a prototype of its upcoming Polestar 5 sedan. The results are nothing short of remarkable.

The test car, equipped with a specially commissioned 77.0-kWh battery pack, was able to charge from 10% to 80% in just 10 minutes.

According to the manufacturer, the charging speeds rose from an initial 310 kW at the start of the test to over 370 kW by the time the battery reached 80% capacity.

“This is proof that we can now charge at these speeds in a standard car,” said Jens Groot, Polestar’s battery systems chief engineer. “We didn’t add anything new outside the battery pack. It still had the original cooling pump and fan.”
