How Long Does it Take to Charge an Electric Car?

Charging an EV


Pod Point, one of UK’s leading providers of electric vehicle charging, likens charging an electric car to charging a mobile phone – you give it a full charge at home overnight, and if necessary, top it up during the day.

A 7kW home charger will typically take up to 12 hours to charge from empty to full – ample time to charge overnight.  You can compare charge times for various makes and models on Pod Points website. 

The rapid chargers that are located at service stations and other public places will charge from 20% to 80% in around 40 minutes – the perfect opportunity to grab a bite of lunch.
