There are a whole lot of electric vehicles out there, including the popular Nissan LEAF. The benefits of driving electric vehicles, or as they’re sometimes called, “EVs,” far outweigh the drawbacks for many Los Angeles drivers. However, some prospective EV buyers and lessees still wonder to themselves, “How long does it take to charge an electric car?” Honestly, that depends on the EV battery, as well as the type and level of EV charging you’re using in Los Angeles. With that said, let’s dive into the three main types of EV charging — domestic charging, rapiddomestic charging, and public charging — and how your choice of each will ultimately determine your electric vehicle charging time.
Plug-in hybrids generally take between 1-4 hours to fully charge. Why? Plug-in hybrid vehicles do not rely solely on electricity as an energy source! They generally have both an all-electric range and a combined gasoline and electricity range.
Most home chargers offer 3.7 kW or 7 kW charging. Public stations, on the other hand, offer 22 kW charging, 43-50 kW rapid charging, and 150 kW rapid charging. As a result, for some applicable vehicles, you could foreseeably get a full charge in about an hour. Otherwise, it could take 4 hours, 6 hours, or up to around 11 hours for a full charge.
