How long does it take to charge an electric car?

The time it takes to charge will varies. It depends on the size of the battery, how it’s being charged (e.g., from a normal socket or using a dedicated AC charger) and whether you have any other appliances on at the same time.

Generally speaking, a mid-size EV (with a 60kWh battery) will takes around 23 hours to charge from 20% to 80% from a normal 8amp socket, and 6 hours using a 7.4 kW smart EV charger.
