New figures: These electric cars charge slowly – "BYD is the worst"

According to the new Norwegian test, if you need to slap on the charge, you should choose a BYD Seal U, not a BYD Seal U. In fact, the Chinese is absolutely slow.

One of the electric car's biggest complaints is that it has to be charged. It simply takes too long.

And although some electric cars do it faster than others, and one car brand after another promises the 'super battery' that is on the way, it is still a long way up to the petrol and diesel car's advantage.

And now a test, which the Norwegian answer to FDM, NAF, is behind has seen how bad it is. And for that sort of thing, which electric cars perform best connected to a charging station.

The test of the charging time is incidentally connected to a range test of the very same electric cars, which the Norwegians call 'Europe's largest'. Shall we take the good news first?

The Porsche Taycan is clearly in the lead and charges from 10 to 80 percent in 17.3 minutes. This is due, among other things, to that the car can preheat the battery, and that – in other words, the battery is based on an 800 volt architecture.

Then two Chinese follow. According to the Norwegians, the Xpeng G6 needs 19.4 minutes to get the same amount of power on the battery, while the Geely-owned Lotus Eletre is one minute slower.

Where is it worst? Yes, it is actually also the case with the Chinese. BYD scrapes the bottom in two out of three cases with the Dolphin and Seal U cars.

Only the Peugeot E-3008 squeezes in between the two Chinese sostres in the ranking's last three places. It's slow going for the BYD Seal U, which needs a full 44.2 minutes to charge the battery from 10 to 80 percent current.

Speaking of BYD, the Norwegians also believe they have revealed that the Chinese brand is legitimately creative with the use of the word four-wheel drive. Read more about it here .

BYD Seal U is also part of the Chinese brand's Danish model program. The SUV costs from DKK 319,000.

But there haven't been very many copies on the roads here at home. Just 81 Seal U were sold in Denmark during the first five months of the year. For comparison, Dolphin has sold 486 copies. Among other things, for home care in several Danish municipalities.
