I had some communication with Rimac on this and other matters. My father-in-law was interested in converting his '40 Ford coupe to electric using their kit. Their charging is similar to what is available right now for other makes. So my calculations were based on what I know about charging my Chevy Volt.

But I agree, the technology is advancing quickly and charge times are decreasing.
