Do Electric Cars Take Long to Charge?
There are different factors that affect the charging times for electric cars. Some take as little as 30 minutes, others more than 12 hours. Charging time depends upon the vehicle itself, its battery size, and the power of the installed charging point. Generally speaking, an average electric car with a 60kWh battery will take around 8 hours to charge from empty to full using a standard 7Kw charging point.
