On average, it takes about 4 to 6 hours to charge from empty to full. With the ability to “fuel up” at home, you’re always able to top up - just like plugging in your phone!
You can charge your EV at home by plugging into a regular 120V wall outlet
or by installing a home charging station. A home charging station requires a 240V electrical outlet similar to a clothes dryer plug. Having a charging station cuts down on charging time (compared to charging from a wall outlet) and is easy to install by an electrician. Cost: $800 to $1,200 plus installation.
