In some of the sites I have read about GLA being able to use the DC fast charger 22KV to get 80% charge in 45 mins.

In my GLA I can only use the Type 2 socket which gives a max of 7.4 KV and hence takes almost 2 hours for a full charge.

I do see a small flap below the type 2 charge point in the car charge socket which I was not able to open.

Is this something we need to pay and get as an additional installation to be able to use the DC charger

I have the same problem and am pretty frustrated. I have a Type 2 connection. I have just connected to a 22kW connection (and paid a premium) and the charge is tricking into at 7kW. It basically means that you can never top up the vehicle en route to anywhere. Really poor. I wouldn’t have bought it at this speed.
