How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?

EV Charging Station with Chevy Models

 

Are you thinking about making the switch to electric vehicles, like so many other Montebello drivers? Then you’ve probably been doing your research into things like electric car charging time. How long does it take to charge an electric car, like the Chevy Bolt EV or Bolt EUV? EV charging time can take around half an hour for a mostly full charge to over 24 hours, depending on which method you use. We talk about those different charging methods below.

How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car with a Home Charger?

There are two levels of home charging, and the EV charging time depends on the level you use. Level 1 involves plugging your car into a 120V grounded outlet in your garage. Level 2 involves the purchase and professional installation of a 240V charger, but this method can be ten times as fast as Level 1. The good news is that Chevrolet will cover the installation of a Level 2 charger at your home when you purchase a Chevy Bolt EV or EUV.

Home Electric Car Charging Time by Charger

Level 1 Home AC EV Charging Time (120V)

  • Less than 2 KW per hour
  • 2% per hour

Level 2 Home AC EV Charging Time (240V)

  • Up to 7.4 KW per hour
  • 20% per hour

How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car at a Public Charging Station?

You’re a busy person. Like most Los Angeles drivers, waiting over 24 hours for your car to charge just isn’t practical. Fortunately, Fast DC public chargers shorten EV charging time considerably. How long does it take to charge an electric car using this method? See below:

Public Electric Car Charging Time by Charger

Fast DC EV Charging Time
