Owning an EV

Understanding Charging

Charging times vary depending of the type of charger used. Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles. Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible. Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

Charging from Home

For plugin hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging. For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician. If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to find out more about charging from home.

Battery Care

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase. If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.

Charging Your Chevy EV May be Easier than You Thought

Recharging the battery on your Chevrolet EV is simple and convenient. Most models can be charged at your home with a 120-volt (Level 1) portable charging cord. For quicker home charging, you may want to install a 240-volt outlet. When you purchase an electric car such as the Chevy Bolt, you may even be able to have a home charging outlet installed for free by Chevrolet.

Recharging Your Electric Vehicle at Home

As a general rule, you can add around four miles of range to your Chevy EV per hour of charge with a standard home electrical outlet. Using a 240-volt appliance outlet and a dual-level charge cord, you can get about 26 miles of range per hour of charge.

With a Level 2 home charging unit, it's possible to charge a Chevy EV up to 39 miles of range per hour of charge. You can make charging your vehicle at home even more handy by programming your vehicle to charge when and where you are with location-based charging. Ultium PowerUP wall chargers are available for quickly, seamlessly charging your Chevy EV at home.

Charging at a Public DC Fast Charging Station

The fastest way to recharge your Chevrolet EV is with a DC Fast Charging public charger. With an EV like the Chevy Bolt, you can add up to 100 miles of range in about 30 minutes at a public charging station. With the Chevy Bolt EUV, you can gain up to 95 miles of range in a half an hour.

Finding a Public Charging Point with the myChevrolet Mobile App

There are over 110,000 publicly available charging points throughout the U.S. and Canada. Chevy makes it even simpler to find a public charging station with the myChevrolet Mobile App with Energy Assist. This app can help you plan the most efficient routes, find available charging stations, and even pay for charging while you're on the go - all from your compatible smartphone.
