How long will it take to charge my EV?
The charging times for electric vehicles can differ based on charging station amperage, battery size, and on-board charger. For example, to charge a Chevy Volt PHEV from empty to full battery, utilizing a 240V outlet would take roughly 4 hours, while charging a Nissan Leaf BEV can take 8 hours.
However, just as you are unlikely to drive a gas vehicle to a completely empty tank, many people are unlikely to drive their EV to a completely dead battery. If you are charging a battery that is not empty, your charging times will be shorter. Generally, you will get an average of 25 to 40 miles of range per hour of charging time when you use a Level 2 charging station.
How far can I travel per charge in my EV?
Electric vehicle range varies depending on the size of the battery, the type and weight of the car, road and weather conditions, driving style, and ancillary usage, such as running the air conditioning or charging your cell phone. Please refer to your vehicle manual to determine how much range you have.
Which electric vehicles can charge at a NovaCHARGE station?
NovaCHARGE® Level 2 charging stations use the North American standard electric vehicle charging plug known as the SAE-J1772. This plug is compatible with all commercially available battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) available in the North American market.
NovaCHARGE® also offers DC Fast Charging stations with Combined Charging System (CCS) and CHAdeMO plugs, which are the two standard plugs for fast charging. Please refer to your owner’s manual to determine the correct DCFC plug for your vehicle. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles cannot use DCFC stations. Tesla drivers can charge at NovaCHARGE® stations using a Tesla to J-1772 or Tesla to CCS adapter. Please refer to your Tesla owner’s manual for more information on using adapters.
How do I charge at a NovaCHARGE Station?
ChargeUP® is our brand for driver charging. Today, it is only available at a NovaCHARGE® charging station. In the coming months, the open standards protocol will become available to use ChargeUP with any compatible OCPI charging station.
