How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Vehicle?

Hyundai Kona Electric


When you charge your phone, you have several options, from wireless charging to fast charging to standard charging. The same is true when you charge a new electric vehicle in Portland. While there’s not necessarily a set time to charge all EVs, we’re here to explain how the type of charging you choose and the EV you drive impact how long it takes to charge your electric vehicle. Still have questions about EV charging? Contact us at Withnell Hyundai and we’ll be more than happy to help.



Options for Electric Car Charging

  1. Public EV Charging: Looking to charge your vehicle while driving around Mcminnville? Look for public charging stations, which are being added to many big-name stores across the country every day at spots like parking garages, malls, hotels, and even apartment buildings.
  2. Domestic Outlet Home EV Charging: A normal three-prong (grounded) 110V/120V charging outlet (also called Level 1 Charging) may not offer quick charging speed but it’s a good option for topping off overnight.
  3. Installed Brand-Approved Home EV Charging: Level 2 Charging is typically professionally installed in your garage. Rapid chargers made for your vehicle will provide significantly faster charging rates than a standard grounded outlet.
