How long does it take to charge an electric car?
Charging time can vary greatly from one electric vehicle to another. The time depends, among other things, on the charging power (in kilowatts), the size of the battery and the starting and target charging levels. For example, consider an electric vehicle with a battery capacity of 60 kWh and a charge point with a charging capacity of 7.4 kW. In this case, it will take 7 hours and 12 minutes to go from 0% to 80%. Using a 50 kW fast charger takes 1 hour and 3 minutes to go from 0% to 80%. Quite a difference.
