From our friends at the NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/05/...latest&contentPlacement=6&pgtype=sectionfront During a pre-race stroll though the pit area in Zurich, it was obvious that managing the heat generated by high-voltage electric car batteries is arguably a more vexing problem than range or charging time. ABB, the electrical and industrial equipment manufacturer based in Zurich that is Formula E’s lead sponsor, has demonstrated technology that needs just eight minutes to zap enough power into a battery for about 120 miles of driving. But a recharging station with six of these high-voltage chargers would put enough strain on the electricity grid to cause a blackout and melt ordinary power cables, said Ulrich Spiesshofer, ABB’s chief executive. The rest is quite long but for those interested in electric cars very interesting. Some of this won't apply to commercial vehicles, others will. Comment as you desire.
