Have you been thinking about getting an electric vehicle for your Sterling Heights commute? Then you’ve probably been doing your research into topics like electric car charging times and all-electric range. So, how long does it take to charge an electric car like the Chevy Bolt EV or Bolt EUV? For a full charge, charging an electric car can range from around half an hour to over 24 hours depending on the charging method you use. We’ll talk about those different charging methods in detail, below.



What’s the Fastest Way of Charging an Electric Car?

Like most Macomb Township drivers, you don’t have all day to spend charging an electric car. Fortunately, you don’t have to, thanks to the proliferation of Fast DC public chargers. How long does it take to charge an electric car using this method? See below:

Public Electric Car Charging Times

  • Fast DC Charging – Less than 50 KW per hour (Up to 80% charge in 36 minutes)
  • Basic Public AC Charging (240V) – Up to 7.4 KW per hour (20% per hour)

How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car at Home?

Electric car charging time at your home in Saint Clair Shores can vary, based on the equipment you have. 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 installation of a Level 2 charger at your home when you purchase a Chevy Bolt EV or EUV, which the vast majority of New Baltimore electric car buyers choose to do. Compare the typical Level 1 and Level 2 electric car charging time, below:

Home Electric Car Charging Times

  • Level 1 Home AC Charging (120V) – Less than 2 KW per hour (2% per hour)
  • Level 2 Home AC Charging (240V) – Up to 7.4 KW per hour (20% per hour)
