- "Sonic" 2021 MME Grabber Blue First Edition
Time is time. Doesn't really matter that Ford has deliberately capped fast charging at 80% - the end result is that the MME can't charge as much as fast. 80% seems awfully conservative given that the batteries already have a built-in buffer. The "solution" of making more frequent stops to charge isn't a solution - it makes road tripping in an EV a bigger pain than it already is.the thing is he's not really taking into account charging curve as part of the design. The eTron by all accounts has a more generous charging curve, but if you are able to charge to 80% more frequently then what happens 80%-100% doesn't really matter.
