How Long Does it Take to Charge a Chevy Bolt?

2021 Chevy Bolt EV with car owners
Looking to go green in Sterling Heights? Electric vehicles (or EVs) run on electric power rather than burning fuel. You’re probably aware that driving an EV will drastically reduce your carbon footprint, and even save you money compared to filling up on gas. But like many drivers, you may also be wondering how long it takes to charge a Chevy Bolt EV. There are three EV charge levels, the fastest of which can deliver a full charge in about one hour. In the guide below from Moran Chevrolet, Inc., we’ll take a closer look at all three EV charging methods and availability.

Three Ways to Charge Your Chevy Bolt EV

With a full charge, the Chevy Bolt EV gets an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range. From household electric car chargers to super-fast DC charging stations, getting a charge in Macomb Township is easier than ever. Learn more about Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 EV charging stations below:

Level 1: 120-Volt Portable Electric Car Charger

We recommend keeping an electric car charger in your glove box for emergencies. These chargers allow you to charge your EV via any 120-volt, three-prong outlet, delivering about 4 miles of charge per hour of charging time. A 12-hour overnight charge delivers about 48 miles of range. Your Chevy Bolt comes standard with a 120-volt electric car charger, so you’ll never need to worry about running out of power when you can’t find a Level 2 or 3 charging station in Saint Clair Shores.

Level 2: 240-Volt Charging Unit

The units you see outside grocery stores or at gas stations are 240-volt level 2 electric car chargers. Many EV drivers also choose to install level 2 chargers at home because they can deliver a full charge much more quickly than level 1 portable chargers, about 25 miles per hour of charging time. To fully charge an empty battery, you’ll need about 9.5 hours. Keep in mind that you’ll need to contact a professional electrician to install a level 2 charging system in your home.

Level 3: DC Fast Charging

Level 3 fast charging provides up to 100 miles of range in just 30 minutes, and up to 160 miles with an hour-long charge. These super-fast charging systems are only available at public stations throughout the Saint Clair Shores area. While level 2 chargers are free or require a small fee, you’ll pay more for the convenience of a level 3 charge.
