For an EV the charging rate depends upon what power is used to source the charger. If you have a 40-50 amp 220V source the charging rate is much quicker than if you source from a 110V 20 amp wall socket. My assumption is that this would apply to the Artura charger.I’ve never had a vehicle with any sort of electrification of the drive train. Heck, my first cars had roll up windows and no AC.
So with the Artura will it be customary to plug it in pretty much every time you get home or another destination if possible? Most of us already plug in to maintain the battery, I’d assume that would be achieved by just the one plug in.
Will we need a charging station at home then?
I had wondered if there would be any sort of regenerative braking. Will this performance and lightweight oriented approach do that?
And yes the Altura has regenerative braking along with alternator type charging from the ICE. Which would maintain a charged battery when used frequently.
But as you suggest I suspect most McLaren owners will plug in to ‘maintain’ the battery .... force of habit 😃
