How long does it take for an electric car to charge?

This will vary from car to car and the type of charger that you’re using. When searching for your next electric car lease, most manufacturers will provide charging times for three different chargers, a rapid 50/100kWh charger, a 7kWh wall plug or a 3kWh domestic charger. 

Between the various chargers, each will charge the car at different speeds, so it is important to plan ahead when you need to recharge your vehicle.

Some electric cars like the Tesla Model 3 can be Supercharged up to 172 miles in just 15 minutes, while popular models like the Nissan Leaf can go from 20-80% in around one hour.

The Tesla line-up once again lead the way in terms of charging speed. With access to their Supercharger Network, the Model S can charge up to 200 miles in 15 minutes. That is enough range to travel from London to Manchester.

The Porsche Taycan is a worthy alternative as one of the fastest charging cars on the market. Using their high-performance Porsche Turbo Chargers, it can recoup 62 miles of range in just six minutes.
