Hi Peter,

Thank you for the suggestion!

To help us build the model, would you please also provide as much of the following information as you can find online (Ordered from most to least important):

- Usable Battery Capacity
- Range (WLTP is preferred)
- Weight
- Dimensions (Height, Width, Length)
- Coefficient of Drag
- Coefficient of Rolling Resistance

We can build a model based on only a partial set of these, but the more data you can provide the better the model will be. For charging, at least some of the following data is needed:

- Peak Charge Power
- Charge Time (including start/end %)
- Plot of Power vs SoC %

A video of a charging session from low to high SoC would also work quite well.

Hello Katya

Here are the specifications I received from Volvo:

Usable battery capacity: 378kWh
Range: 250-350km depending on use. Theoretical value 290 KM
Drag value: Unfortunately not available (development secret)
Rolling resistance: Depends on tyres (rolling resistance class... maybe a tyre manufacturer can give exact information)

Charging power:

Maximum charging power: 225kW (Basically the current is limiting maximum is charged with 330A).
Charging time from 0% to 100% SOC 2h (average charging power of 200kW)
Charging curve can be found in the appendix
