How long will charging take?

May 25, 1990

Charging time depends on both the type of charge used and the vehicle. For completely empty batteries using a common 120-volt outlet (Level 1), an owner can expect a full charge in 8-12 hours. With a 240-volt outlet and a Level 2 charging station, an owner can expect to fully charge a battery in 4-6 hours. A Level 3 “Quick Charge” station can charge a fully depleted battery up to 80% fully charged in less than 30 minutes.
