Electric car how long to charge?

If you’re comparing charging duration for charging to filling with petrol or diesel, please stop. Charging is normally carried out whilst the car is parked and with no need to be fully charged.

The fastest charging can be damaging to batteries, the slower the better. Whilst asleep is the ideal way. So, in most situations, the 0 – 100% charged figures are interesting, but rarely crucial.

Current cars can take 30 minutes to add 100 miles range, just the time for a coffee break.

Home charging from zero may take 7 hours, perfect whilst sleeping.
