So Jaguar says that the IPace can handle up to 100 amp DC fast chargers. Has anyone yet had actual experience using a DC fast charger up to its stated limit of 80 - 100 amps fast charging?

Most SAE CCS stations are 50kW and 24kW advertised speed, but really run a bit slower.
There is a new generation of chargers coming that will charge at up to 350 kW, or more realistically 150 kW.
There is only one I know of that is operating in California, it's near Salinas. 2 owners reported charging at 83 and 84 kW. https://www.plugshare.com/location/163319

By this summer, there should be lots of 100 kW and higher chargers. But... people have been saying that since last year. Baker California has 4 x 350 kW capable chargers installed, but haven't allowed the public to use them yet.

Maximum speed AFAIK anybody has gotten while charging their I-Pace is 84kW. Supposedly software version 14.2 enabled 100kW charging but nobody when at a charger that fast has gotten anything higher than 83-84 here or in Europe.

Got an email from EVgo about Baker Super Speed CCS. No estimated date on public availability, it's for approved testing only. Only the 50kW's are online

But if lots of people contact them and ask the same question? Perhaps they will move the complaint up the food chain. Can't hurt.

Max kW to the vehicle is based on max amps x battery voltage. If the CCS runs at 500 volts but your battery is just 450 volts it will max out at 10% less than the full rating.

CCS Rating 500v x 200a = 100 kW

Vehicle 450v x 200a = 90 kW
