. I've charged the Ioniq 5 SEL ER AWD and EV6 Wind ER RWD from 20-80% in 15 minutes, and those cars had 256 and 310 miles EPA range, so 60% would be 153.6 and 186 miles in 15 minutes.
I laughed too, the 62 kWh Leaf can already charge fast enough to get 100 miles in 15 minutes, I do it all the time. Provided that the SoC is less than 60% of course because it starts to taper off after that and it only takes 80 kW to do this in 15 minutes if you are doing at least 5 m/kWh of driving or better.
In all fairness, this was quoted from a dealer, not Nissan Battery Researchers:
Furthermore, Nissan’s efforts in the development of solid-state batteries will move on to the pilot production phase next year in Yokohama, Japan, with one dealer who attended the meeting saying that the slimmer packs would be capable of offering 100 miles of driving after a quick 15-minute top up.
