Since the Hyundai and the Kia are running on the same platform that should make it to the Kia soon too.There are many factors that affect charging speed/power. The ambient temperature affects the EVSE (EA unit), battery temperature, where you are charging on the charging curve, amperage/voltage of the EA unit and amount of charging losses to name a few factors. It seems a major factor in the e-GMP platform is the battery temp and the lack of battery pre-heating prior to charging. See Bjorn Nyland's video on this, Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 battery overheating explained.
Hyundai is set to release a software update that will allow this function, and perhaps on-demand pre-heating, for mapped routes to an EVSE. Kyle Connor of Out of Spec Reviews mentions in this video (27:20) that en-route pre-heating/pre-conditioning of the battery is coming soon, Volkswagen ID.4 EV Road Trip To Buy A Hyundai IONIQ 5! because he has a call with the Hyundai engineers during the video. Perhaps the newly announced software upgrade rolling out has these features.
Given where you bought your EV6, if you're local, I'll guess that the 150 KW charger you're referring to is the site by TJ Max? While your charging rate was very low, that wasn't because of the charger. I use those chargers, and, given enough time for the battery to warm up, I've been charging close to the rated 150 KW. Those chargers are OK.Just got my EV6 Wind AWD. KIA advertise the EV6 able to be charged by 800V DC. Anyone has found those charger. Is that the Electricfy 350Kwh? I used one 150kwh on Electricfy America. It took 30 min to charge 22kwh from 74% to 98%. Is that good?
I was wondering about that when I read this article in Green Car News about 350kw vs 150kw charging. It seems to be an anecdotal conclusion; would be nice to get more extensive data about whether it's typical that 350kw chargers are faster as we'd expect, or not. I have not used DC charging on my EV6 yet but am thinking about some road trips where I'd need to.I found the EA 350 kW chargers to not be so great when I drove the car home. They generally ran from 55-77 kW, even at a set of four chargers with no other car there than mine. One started at 196 kW, telling me 14 minutes to 80% (started at ~15%), but quickly dropped and by 40% it was down in the 50s and telling me 24 minutes until 80%. I bailed on it and went further down the road where there were more restaurants. Oddly the 150 kW station there ran as fast or faster than the two 350 kW chargers I had used earlier that day, it was averaging ~77 kW.

That would make sense for seeing 173 kW reported on those "150 kW" chargers.Almost all EA 150 stalls are actually 175 kW units, so I generally use the 150s because it only adds like 2 minutes and the car stays quieter because it doesn't have to work cooling quite as hard.
