That’s fabricated accessible by the belvedere accepting 800-volt allegation adequacy as accepted with a bulk of up to 350 kW. This is futureproofing to a ample extent, as such accelerated chargers aren’t absolutely ubiquitous. However, the arrangement additionally allows for today’s added accepted 400-volt charging arrangement at a bulk of up to 150 kW.
