CHAdeMO DC fast-charging to run at up to 150 kilowatts, starting in 2017

As more longer-range electric vehicles go on sale, the charging infrastructure that supports them will need to adapt to bigger batteries.

When it comes to DC fast charging, more powerful charging stations will be needed to charge electric cars with larger-capacity battery packs within a reasonable amount of time.
