How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Vehicle?

Woman charging 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid

When your battery is low, how long does it take to charge your electric vehicle fully? Your specific electric car charging time will depend on a number of factors, but Anderson Ford Kingman is here to break it down. Whether charging at home in Golden Valley or at a DC Fast Charger station in Dolan Springs, find out how much time to budget for your next fill up.



What are My Electric Car Charging Options?

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet): You can take advantage of Level 1 charging speeds by simply plugging your car into any normal grounded (three-prong) 110V/120V charging outlet. Though easily accessible, Level 1 charging is the slowest. It will take days to charge your EV fully. However, it will only take a few hours to charge a plug-in hybrid due to its smaller battery size.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging: Installing a Level 2 charger in your home will cut down your electric car charging time drastically. These charging stations use a 240V+ power source, which means your EV can charge in hours. Keep in mind that your battery will charge quickly from 0 to 80%, but the last 20% will always take longer.
  3. Public Charging: From parking lots to grocery stores to malls, there are tons of public charging stations popping up all over Hackberry. Some are Level 2 speeds like you’d find in an at-home charging station, but some are Level 3 DC Fast Chargers. That means you might be able to charge your battery fully in under an hour.

Electric Car Charging Time: Domestic vs. Public

How does your electric car charging time differ at home vs. a public charging station? Domestic chargers are limited to around 3.7 kW or 7 kW charging since they are pulling power directly from your home. Public charging stations can use higher voltage: 22 kW standard charging, 43-50 kW fast charging, and 150 kW rapid charging. That’s why home stations usually require overnight charging to top off the battery fully, while public stations can charge your car in under an hour.
