Level 1 Charging

Level 1 Charging

All plug-in EVs are outfitted for Level 1 charging, so you can plug directly into a standard household 120-volt outlet. While charging takes longer at this level (about five miles of range per hour of charging) it’s typically enough for many daily drive patterns.

Level 2 Charging

Level 2 Charging

Level 2 charging is faster than Level 1 but requires a professionally-installed charging station with a 240-volt outlet. Charging at this level can yield 12-80 miles of range per hour. Learn more at cars.sce.com.

DC Fast-Charging

DC Fast-Charging

DC Fast-Charging is available at many public charging stations. It’s the fastest level commonly used, with up to 40 miles of range for every 10 minutes of charging. Due to the high cost of these stations, they’re not suitable for home installation.

Make sure your home is EV ready. You’ll need a licensed electrician to install a Level 2 charging station. Even if you plan to use a Level 1 charging cord, it’s a good idea to have a certified electrician inspect your home’s electrical wiring before your first charge.
