How Long Does it Take to Charge an Electric Car?

Man plugging in Chevrolet Bolt EV


Looking for a way to spend less money fueling up at Sarasota gas stations? Electric vehicles are a great solution, but you may be wondering, “how long does it take to charge an electric car?” The answer depends on your charging method. There are several charging options available with different plugs and ports, as well as charging adapters. Learn more about electric car charging times and options with Cox Chevrolet before you get behind the wheel!

What Are My Electric Car Charging Options?

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging: Your most basic option is an everyday three-pronged 110V/120V charging outlet (Level 1 Charging). This option takes a while to reach a full charge, so it’s not an ideal long-term solution, but it’s good for topping off each night to prepare for your daily commute.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Home Charging: To reach Level 2 Charging, you’ll typically need to go with a professionally-installed, brand-approved option. When you make the upgrade, you can expect a much faster charge time than with a domestic outlet.
  3. Public Charging: With electric vehicles gaining popularity on Tampa streets, public charging stations are on the rise, too. When you’re on the go, you can stop off at parking garages, hotels, malls, and even apartment buildings to top off your charge. Many big-name national stores are also participating now, like Walgreens and Kohls, and more charging stations are being installed across the country every day.
