16 kWh charge rate is a pain. The lowest I had heard before (where not station limited) was 20. Even at 10 and 11 bars on my Plus I could get 50 kWh. (I haven’t seen 12 bars)
Your 62kWh battery is 52% more capacity & therefore heats up quite a bit less than the 40kWh at the same freeway speed because the additional capacity largely through additional cells are discharging at a lower C rate so the heat given off during that discharge process is lower.
And when charging you again have 52% more capacity so your 50KW charge rate is equivalent to a 33KW charge rate in a 40kWh car.
