Prototype charging station lets you drive 100km on a three-minute charge

BMW AG and Porsche unveiled a charging station that can jolt electric vehicles with enough power to drive 100 kilometers (62 miles) in less than three minutes, pushing ahead of Tesla Inc. in the race to make battery-powered cars more convenient.

The ultra-fast prototype charger has capacity of 450 kilowatts, more than triple Tesla’s Superchargers.

ok, cool so how long will the battery last after a few of these recharges?

or will it shorten the capacity of the battery considerably?
