Sure. Start with a journalist with a clue.

Get these new 100kw NexGen combo CHAdeMO/CCS units out there and start cranking away!
Sad state of affairs for the Baker station.. just get it done already!

But anyone able to suggest just what hardware would be required, if you could use the 12 V DC output to safely draw close-to-3 kWh, at 120/240 V?
That's more than my whole-house-and-well draw, as long as I'm not using the geothermal heat pump. <snip>
The new SpC V3 are pretty easy to understand.. just rip out the current 11kw stacks and put in the new (and even smaller for factor) 72a chargers.. from Tony...SageBrush wrote:JasonA wrote:1. YES! Tesla started off (small) but those SpC's were always BIGGER than the car's largest spec battery was so at least I'm charging at a 1c or avg rate.
I don't have a full charging profile yet, but I saw 103 kW when I started charging at a SoC of 48% earlier this week and 39 kW at 80%. That works out to ~ 1.3c and I'll guess an average 0.9 -- 1c from low battery up to 80% SoC
Tesla will likely announce SuperCharger v.3 towards the end of the year. I'm hopeful (though no specifics yet) that the new stations will let me charge at an average 1.5c from low to 80% SoC.
As for the LEAF ... DC fast charging is a joke.
this GEN2 charger (72 amps max) looks like the same foot print as the GEN1 (40 amps max), which makes sense to upgrade the Superchargers.
The original 90kW Superchargers had 9 chargers (3 on each phase).
The 120kW Superchargers have 12. Somewhere in that time, they increased the output of each charger (or bumped the number up to 15) since each current Supercharger now has a 140kW output, limited to 120kW for each of the two stalls that it charges.
Just swapping in the GEN2 chargers at 72 amps into each Supercharger will nearly double the capacity, hence when Musk talks about v3 Superchargers at “200 to 250kW”, it’s clearly already possible.
Expect a flood on the market of GEN1 chargers!!
2019 Jaguar I-Pace EV first drive: Recalibrate your expectations
Jag's well-executed electric debut leaves all the other established luxury marques playing catchup
Beyond being a very pleasant car in its own right, the I-Pace feels like the start of something. Maybe this is the moment electric vehicles begin to lose their Silicon Valley sheen -- and stigma -- and begin to really work their way into the mainstream...

The All-Electric 2019 Jaguar I-Pace First Drive: So Good, It'll Keep You Up at Night
Listen up, gasheads: The fantastic new Jaguar EV will come silently in the dark and eat your young.
... Jaguar has fired the first meaningful shot at Tesla’s EV primacy, and it's not a shot across the bow. This one is a direct hit, right into the hull. The Jaguar I-Pace, which I spent two days caning on the back roads across the picturesque and impoverished farmlands of southern Portugal and on the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, is a sporty, electric revelation.
After 30 minutes of driving the I-Pace, I began a battle in my head: Why do ICE cars even exist anymore? This car is an appealing low-slung crossover with outrageous linear acceleration and a ride that toggles between pleasant and aggro. It also has an interior that doesn’t skimp on content in the name of weight savings (EVs have always been bedeviled by chintzy design compromises). It doesn’t rattle or skitter over bumps. It is planted, fierce, and fun to drive...
The I-Pace is an expensive car, but it’s smartly-priced to grab buyers from all the Teslas, as well as other competitors like the Porsche Macan GTS, the BMW X4 M40i, and whatever crossover EVs Mercedes and Audi have coming. But Jaguar is here first, and it's built a killer with enough chops to keep an old gashead like me awake at night, fretting over the past while dreading the future a little less.
Electrifying Jaguar I-Pace Sets a Benchmark Even Tesla Will Have to Clear
Performance, handling, style and spaciousness come together to redefine the BEV.
by Paul A. Eisenstein on Jun.14, 2018
Whether on a track or a back country road the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is a real game-changer.
I have seen – and driven – the future, and it is electric....
It is easy to fall back on clichés when trying to describe Jaguar’s first all-electric model, but it truly is electrifying, and by virtually every measure, it not only sets a benchmark for future battery-electric vehicles but also shows that BEVs can pose a direct challenge to conventional gas-powered models when it comes to not only design, interior space, comfort and utility, but performance and handling, as well...
As we plunged into that mountain stream we couldn’t help but think of the irony that a company once known for its trouble-plagued electrical technology could help transform the world of electric propulsion. But if our trip to the Algarve is any indication, the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace provides a benchmark for the emerging electric vehicle segment, proving BEVs really can do everything a gas vehicle can – and more.
I-PACE MARKS JAG'S EMERGENCE AS A MODERN ENGINEERING POWERHOUSE
Jaguar's electric crossover proves the company can compete with global tech leaders
We've covered Jaguar Land Rover thoroughly of late, charting its 10-year progress under Tata Motors and in this week's paper, exploring the marketing challenges involved with the introduction of the Jaguar I-Pace, the company's first electric vehicle.
I drove the I-Pace two weeks ago in southern Portugal for around 350 miles over two days, covering virtually every kind of terrain I-Pace buyers are likely to encounter and some they won't.
We drove up and down steep and twisty mountain roads, through a stream, off road, up the side of a mountain on a dusty road and flat out at 125 mph on a race track.
The I-Pace is the most capable vehicle Jaguar has ever engineered and developed -- a brutally fast electric sports car with a crossover body that can haul five people and their gear nearly anywhere they want to go for about as far as you'd want to drive in a day and, of course, without burning fossil fuel.
But here's the bigger picture: The I-Pace marks JLR's arrival as a first-rate engineering organization.
With JLR's powerful and efficient Ingenium engines and recent vehicles such as the Jaguar F-Type sports car, XE SV Project 8 performance sedan and Range Rover Velar, JLR is flexing some mighty engineering muscles.
But the I-Pace is an Olympic gold medal performance. The creativity in engineering on the I-Pace is impressive...
JLR may be small compared with Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi, but that is an advantage. One reason JLR's global sales have grown from 186,590 in 2008 to 625,109 last year is because it has very quickly rolled out new nameplates on new platforms. The I-Pace is the latest example. It took four years to go from a clean sheet design to the showroom -- perhaps a record for an EV. And JLR designed its motors in-house. All this growth has been noticed by engineers at competitors, who might spend years toiling away designing head gaskets or door handles before they get to lead development on a major system on an important vehicle...
Jaguar Land Rover Investing $18 Billion In EVs
...The British manufacturer wants to offer electrified versions of all its ICE models and will increase its investments in this area by 26 per cent. Speaking during an investor presentation, Jaguar Land Rover said that these investments will come despite sales and revenue in the year to March not hitting the levels it had expected.
By 2025, the automaker intends on also offering hybrid versions of its ICE vehicles and if customer demand warrants it, will only offer full-electric versions of select models...
The first all-electric model built by Jaguar is the I-Pace, recently introduced as a rival to the Tesla Model X. Despite the vehicle representing Jaguar’s first attempt at an electric crossover, the reviews for the I-Pace have been overwhelmingly positive...
