Lotus seek to take on Testa with liquid cooled superchargers

One of the automobiles that can accept this kind of charging is the Geely-inspired Lotus Eletre R, which, according to the company can give the driver a range of 142 km, with just 5 minutes of charge. Lotus is proud of their accomplishment, especially since other high power charging stations can deliver a maximum of 360kW.

Now 450kW is an insanely large amount of power to hold and to that effect, Lotus has developed liquid cooled charging cabinets that are best suited for spaces that require high energy in order to increase efficiency and minimize charging time, such as motorway rest stops,”.

There is also a more compact liquid cooled charging station that Lotus has designed, and this is meant for charging upto four vehicles at a time, and it has been designed to vary the charging speed depending on the hardware that the cars are equipped with. Not all cars have the 800V charging kit required for the super-fast charging.
