How to Charge Your EV

Charging is easy.

Charging your EV couldn't be simpler. Plug-in the charger that comes with your EV into a standard electric wall socket, just like you do with your mobile phone, or charge at a faster speed with a Level 2 charger.
There are three EV charging options: Level 1, Level 2 and DC Fast Charger (DCFC)
Level 1 (Basic)
Level 1 (Basic)
  • Connect to a standard, three-prong, 120-volt outlet
  • The charger is portable and comes with your EV
  • One hour of Level 1 charging provides about two to five miles of range, depending on the vehicle model
Level 2 Charger
Level 2
  • Connect to a four-prong, 240-volt outlet, like the one that powers your clothes dryer
  • Charging can be hardwired, which requires a charging station with a conduit, instead of a plug
  • One hour of Level 2 charging provides about 10 to 20 miles of range, depending on the vehicle model
DC Fast Charger
DC Fast Charger (DCFC)
  • An EV must be fast-charging enabled for DCFC
  • DCFC is a great option when taking longer road trips: One hour of DCFC charging provides about 150 to 210 miles of range, depending on the vehicle model and DCFC power level
