In this issue of Squeezed Lemon: the Kia EV6 and its ultra-fast charging system (10-80% in 18 minutes), drone shows push fireworks out the door, Elon Musk’s 5 winning investments, and 50 movies Netflix says you should definitely watch.
The Kia EV6 has the super-fast charging system you’ve been waiting for
Kia just launched an attractive electric car called the EV6. But what really caught our attention was its new ultra-fast charging system. When connected to an 800W terminal, the vehicle can go from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. That’s only a little longer than the time it takes to fill up and pay at the cash register with a combustion engine car. Charging times are indeed becoming so short that the comparative advantages of combustion cars are falling one after the other. Great news for the planet!
Drone shows: what if this is the end of fireworks?
You may have watched the amazing drone show at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics. For some time now, this kind of show has been multiplying. The world record for the number of drones synchronized in this way had already been set by Hyundai during the launch of its Genesis brand a few months earlier. At that time, 3291 drones flew in formation. Now it appears that demand is very strong, despite a still limited offer. Which is probably a bad sign for the pyrotechnics industry.
