As technology changes and more EVs hit the market, charging times are decreasing significantly. Entry-level chargers supplied with EVs can take up to 30 hours to fully charge a vehicle; this timeframe reduces significantly with higher capacity chargers. We recommend talking with your car dealer or the vehicle manufacturer on the estimated charging time, to help you consider if a higher capacity charger at extra cost is a worthwhile investment.
Public or roadside chargers can be much faster – often doing the job in less than five hours. These can be convenient for leaving to charge while you have an appointment, shopping or work to attend to.
In addition, Super-charge stations – dotted along eastern Queensland – can add up to 300 kilometres of range in just 10 to 15 minutes.
