How long does charging take?

Charging times are falling quickly as technology advances. Residential chargers are able to fully charge EVs in around six to eight hours, depending on the vehicle’s capacity. This means you can easily charge your car overnight.

The average Australian drives 38 kilometres per day so a typical EV owner can go either choose to charge for 1-2 hours each day, or go for a week or more between larger recharging sessions.

Unlike petrol cars, you can recharge at home or anywhere with access to electricity.

Public fast chargers are also available.  Ultra-rapid chargers can add up to 300km of range in ten minutes, depending on the vehicle.
