If you are thinking about purchasing an EV, you will need to find the electric vehicle that is right for you:

  • Battery electric vehicles (BEVs)/All-electric vehicles (EVs) are powered only by an electric battery.
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) use batteries that can be recharged by plugging into the grid and can also use fuel to power the engine.

Types of EV Chargers

Your electric vehicle needs to be charged regularly to maximize its range. Charge times can vary depending on your vehicle and the type of charger:

  • Level 1: Any connector you have at home. No installation or additional charging equipment required. On average, it may take between 11-20 hours to fully charge your vehicle.
  • Level 2: Requires special charging equipment and a 240-volt circuit. These are typically found at workplaces and public charging stations but can also be installed in a residential home. On average, it could take between 3-8 hours to fully charge your vehicle.
  • DC Fast Chargers: Require highly specialized equipment. These can be found at special charging stations along highway corridors and can power up most batteries in about 30 minutes.
