How long does it take to charge an electric car?

The time it takes to charge an EV depends on how big the battery in your car is, and the EV charging point you’re using.

Typically, a standard electric car and charge point should take an average of 8 hours to fully charge from empty.

However, best practice is to top up the charge of your electric car rather than waiting for it to drain completely.

Topping up can mean you only need a 30 min charging time with a rapid charger, which can easily be achieved while at work, at home, or on the go.

Home chargers however are a great solution because you can charge your car overnight, so it’s ready for your journey the following day.
