You’re right, both the e40 & M50 should have the same charger and thus the same charging rates. Given that the range of the e40 is greater than the M50, if anything, more miles should be added per minute of charging for the e40. Something doesn’t look right.

So they must've failed their calculation, because taking the lower consumption for the 40 with the same charging as the M50, the values should be way higher. Also it's the same for the other vehicles. EQS450 has lower consumption but same battery as EQS580, but same km per 5 min charging.
That’s exactly what I was saying in my post above. I can’t understand why someone didn’t catch the error when they put this together. The illogic of their e40 result should have been very obvious. Very sloppy.

It almost makes you think they just made up numbers. I wouldn’t take their results seriously, they certainly didn’t seem to conduct these tests seriously.
