Loading speed in the test: a South Korean loads the fastest

Not only the range is a criterion for potential buyers of electric cars, but also the charging speed. In the P3 charging index, the best travel electric vehicle is determined every year. This year's winner even breaks the reference value.

An important decision criterion when buying an e-car is its charging speed. However, theory and practice can often differ significantly here, which makes it difficult for the consumer to compare different models. The P3 Group, a consulting company from Stuttgart, has therefore been publishing the so-called Charging Index for several years, which makes the charging performance of electric vehicles currently available on the market comparable. This year, Kia's EV6 made it to first place.

The charging behavior of e-cars is measured in the charging window of 10 to 80 percent. For better comparability, charging is only carried out at charging stations from a single manufacturer. In the practical charging tests, the first step is to determine how much range can be recharged in 20 minutes. Based on this value, an index to the target value "300 kilometers" is then calculated. If a range of 300 kilometers is charged in 20 minutes, the index value is 1.0.

In the case of the Kia EV6, a 1.03 was even awarded. Last year's winner, Mercedes EQS, came in second with a value of 0.92 (equivalent to 275 kilometers). They are followed by BMW iX Xdrive50 with 0.91 (273 kilometers), Hyundai Ioniq 5 2WD with 0.91 (272 kilometers) and Porsche Taycan GTS with 0.90 (271 kilometers). Incidentally, the Taycan has recharged 183 kilometers after ten minutes, which corresponds to the second-best result up to this point. But the Porsche loses its early lead again, as the loading speed then slows down significantly compared to other models.

The top five models belong to the middle or upper class, but P3 also tested cheaper models from the lower classes. In this environment, VW's ID.3 (58 kWh) achieved the best result with 0.81. They are followed by Peugeot e-208 (0.72), Hyundai Kona 64 kWh (0.65), Fiat 500e (0.62), Mini Cooper SE (0.29) and Dacia Spring (0.20).
