  • Charging time depends on your vehicle type, state of charge, battery temperature and charger speed. Charging also slows down as the battery becomes more full.

    But, as a rough guide:

    • Fast chargers take several hours to reach 100%
    • Rapid chargers take around an hour to reach 80%
    • Ultra-rapid chargers take around 20-30 minutes to reach 80%

    (These estimates all assume a low state of charge on arrival and optimal battery temperature for a modern EV.)
