With the event this week in Breckenridge, can someone local drop by a charger and check the charging curve?

I mean they must be using those local chargers all week for the event with all those R1T's there... just sayin'

There's got to be a customer delivery happening soon from someone on this forum that can go do all the testing...

They are probably still using pre-production cars for the media event, so depending on how old they are the charging curve might be different than the production versions.

I sure hope not. We really don't need another media dump where after every question or concern it's just "well, it's just pre production, maybe there's still hope!".

By my math that is 27 minutes to go from 20 to 80%, which using the EPA’s 314 mile range would add 188 miles of range. And that is assuming a constant 180kw. It almost definitely is faster at the low end of the curve.

Sounds awesome and will hopefully ramp up a bit more even once they have the data to do it safely.
This was a portable charging station, not sure we’d see the same results from EA or the unreliable other networks. I like those numbers though not trying to hate. Guess this is the “if all goes well” rate. 😂

It is what the car is capable of. That is what we want to know. Hopefully charging networks improve such that they are more consistent

Not much. The fastest they should be able to peak is about 220 kW.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rivian also cranked up the curve just for the race for them and we won't see this. Just tempering expectations (mostly own).

For conflicting evidence someone just shared 22-80% on EA350 charger. Which sounds like a working EA charger, and would most definitely not be hitting anywhere near 180kw at 80%
