More and more drivers in Gastonia are hanging up the keys to their traditional gas-powered sedan in favor of an all-electric car. Others have considered making the switch, but are apprehensive about electric car charging times. The new Chevy Bolt EV is a popular choice for Concord commuters thanks to its 259-mile range, but how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt? Rick Hendrick City Chevrolet provides everything you should know about the electric car charger times for the Bolt.
With a 100% charge, the Chevy Bolt EV can travel 259 miles. That’s plenty of range for the average daily commute in Rock Hill, SC, but how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt in-between commutes?
This is the standard at-home charging option for the Bolt EV. The 120-volt portable charger cord is included as standard with every Bolt configuration and can be plugged into any 120-volt three-prong outlet.
Using Level 1 Basic charging, the Bolt can get 4 miles of range per hour of charging. This makes it a good option for overnight charging to replenish the range used for that day’s commute. After 12 hours of Level 1 charging, the Bolt gets approximately 48 miles of range.
The Level 2 Fast electric car charger is available for home or public charging, providing 25 miles of range per hour of charging.
For Level 2 charging at home, a special plug can be purchased and installed in the garage or driveway by an authorized electrician. Those who do a lot of driving each day will likely find this to be a worthy upgrade as it can replenish 50 miles of range in just two hours. When the battery is emptied, this electric car charger can get it back to 100% in about 9.5 hours.
This is the fastest electric car charger option and is found only at public DC Fast Charger stations. It can provide 100 miles of range per 30 minutes of charging or 160 miles in about an hour.
Unlike Level 2 public charging stations, the Bolt EV must be equipped with a special charging port to connect to Level 3 DC fast chargers. Connect with Rick Hendrick City Chevrolet to talk about pricing for this equipment.
With the number of public charging stations ever-increasing across the country, “range anxiety” is quickly diminishing and electric vehicles are becoming a viable option for a wider range of drivers!
