How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E at Charging Station


If you’re looking to buy an electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) as your next car, you might be wondering, “How long does it take to charge an electric car?” This is important information to know, especially if you’re worried about making your Oshkosh work commutes on time. Electric car charging time really depends on your EV/PHEV type, make, and model. Learn about how long it takes to charge an electric car and electric car charging options by reading on with Holiday Automotive, and contact us for more information on going electric.

Electric Car Charging Options in Fond du Lac

  1. Level 1 Charging: This option is what you would have in your Sheboygan home and is typically a 110V/120 charging outlet. It usually takes over a day or more for your electric car to fully charge, so this is the slowest option.
  2. Level 2 Charging: This option is usually professionally installed in your home. Level 2 charging uses 240V+ fast chargers made specifically for your car’s make and model. Level 2 charging will have your vehicle charged in a few hours, and it is not uncommon to get an 80% charge in under an hour.
  3. Level 3 Charging: These are the electric car charging options that can be found in public around West Bend, like parking garages, malls, hotels, apartment complexes, and sometimes national chain stores like Kohls or Walgreens. Level 3 charging options can have your vehicle fully charged in an hour or less. Some of these charging stations vary in type and speed, with some Level 2 options provided for more convenience.

If you happen to drive a plug-in hybrid, these charging times can be much faster. This is because PHEVs don’t completely rely on electricity and can always switch over to gasoline power.
