How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Vehicle?

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS Charging


Many of the Phoenix region’s most discerning drivers are eager to experience the all-new, all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQS, but how long does it take to charge an electric car? This is a crucial question for would-be EV owners, but electric car charging times vary by brand, as well as by the charging method employed. Explore the differences between domestic, rapid domestic, and public charging with our team, and then find out if the Mercedes-Benz EQS charging time is a good fit for your lifestyle.

Average Electric Car Charging Times by Method in Chandler, AZ

As noted, there can be a significant difference in charging time depending on the model that you select. However, most electric vehicles are compatible with three distinct charging methods: domestic, rapid domestic, and public.

Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet)

Domestic Outlet Home Charging is also known as Level 1 Charging. This kind of charging requires nothing except for a grounded three-prong 110V/120V power outlet; however, achieving a full charge with this method may take up to 24 hours, or even longer. Still, if you only have a short daily commute through Phoenix or Gilbert, you might be able to use Level 1 Charging to top off every evening.

Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging 

For most EV owners, Level 2 Charging is a stronger everyday choice. Most electric vehicles are offered with professionally-installed wall boxes that function like 240V+ power outlets. In most cases, these charging ports can bring your vehicle from ‘empty’ to ‘full’ in a matter of hours, or even up to 80% in an hour or less. For most drivers, plugging in overnight with a Level 2 wall box is enough to ensure a full charge every morning.

Public Charging in Chandler, AZ

Public charging stations are now available all across the nation, and you can find them at many locations in Chandler and Tempe. These charging stations may offer 22 kW charging, 43-50 kW rapid charging, or even 150 kW rapid charging. Naturally, electric car charging times vary greatly in speed depending on the type of charging station you’ve connected to. Many vehicles can achieve a full charge in an hour or less; others will take much longer.
