Electric Car Charging Times

Have you considered an electric vehicle (EV) for your next Milford daily commuter? EVs are becoming increasingly popular and can be a great choice for many drivers. They provide a quiet driving experience and all of the latest and greatest technology features. But, how long does it take to charge an electric car? Electric car charging times can vary depending on the specific charger and vehicle.

But in some cases, you can get around 60 to 200 miles for only 20 to 30 minutes of charging. Learn more about electric car charging times today with Kent County Motors! We’re going to provide an in-depth answer to the question, “How long does it take to charge an electric car?” We’ll also touch on the new GMC Hummer EV super truck.

How Long Does it Take to Charge an Electric Car?

As we mentioned, there isn’t one solid answer to EV charging times. There are a variety of factors that come into play when you’re trying to figure out how fast your EV can charge. There are two main charging sources your electric vehicle can utilize, Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. Here’s some information regarding the different types of chargers and their charging times:

  • Standard Home Wall Outlet (Level 1): Level 1 chargers are typically your chargers that utilize a 110V/120V charging outlet. Most commonly, these chargers use the standard wall outlet you might find in your Smyrna home. Level 1 chargers can take around 25 hours or more for a full electric charge.
  • Professionally Installed/Public Chargers (Level 2): Level 2 chargers can be professionally installed in your home. Many public chargers can also be considered as Level 2 chargers. These chargers utilize 240V and more and can offer quick charging times. Level 2 chargers can fully charge your electric vehicle in a few hours. Sometimes even as quick as 20 to 30 minutes of charging for 60 to 200 miles of electric driving range.
