Q How long does it take to charge an electric car?


The time to charge an electric car will vary, it depends on the size of the battery and how empty it was as well as the speed of the charging point.

A typical electric car with a 60kWh battery takes approximately 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full using a 7kW charging point. Using a 50kW rapid charger, the battery can be topped up by 100 miles of range in approximately 35 minutes.
