Well its easy to see why we don't see over 6 kw public charging and that is because ignoring less than 10,000 Bolts on the road (Tesla's DO see faster L2) look at the size of the battery packs. This will change dramatically in the next year. The thought that L2 providers will remain static is simply not likely. Central WA has fast L2's so its not like something has to be designed.

Heck, there are a couple of 70-80A L2s in Syracuse, NY (the J1772 spec goes up to 80A/240V = 19.2kW). Not exactly a stronghold of EVs. So yes, it's possible. And it's cheaper than DC. But I wonder if we will really see more 80A EVSEs. I would much rather see 100kW DCQCs become the norm, with free 32A L2s dotted around at companies looking to attract business.

The reality is its become the loose standard that an L2 recharge takes roughly 8 hours or "overnight" with a 60 kwh pack, we are looking at 10+ hours which is beyond the parameters.

So maybe 9.6 is too much but my statement that I would be surprised to see 6.6 stands. I just don't see it happening. Like any highly competitive area, when predicting future specs, we can get a real good hint of what we might expect by looking to other manufacturers.

The guesses are not rocket science. 7.7 for a 40 amp feed or 9.6 for a 50 amp feed. I will bet on one of those two any day over leaving it at 6.6
