How long does it take to charge an electric car? 

Use the tool below to calculate the charging time of your electric vehicle.

33kWh
1. Battery size
40%
2. Starting charge level
100%
3. Target charge level - Make sure, that the target charge level is higher than the starting charge level
4. Charging power in kW
Estimated total charging time: hour(s) and
minutes

60km or miles
5. Distance per day
6. Energy consumption in kWh/100 km or kWh/100 miles
Estimated daily charging time: hour(s) and
minutes

 

Step-by-step guide

1. Battery size – Select the battery size of the electric vehicle which should be considered in the calculation. Choose the battery size in kWh.

2. Starting charge level – This percentage corresponds to the level of the battery at the beginning of the process. If you want to calculate the charging time of a completely empty battery, select 0%.

3. Target charge level – It is basically up to which percentage you want the battery to be charged. If you want to calculate the charging time of a completely full battery, select 100%. Please make sure, that the target charge level is higher than the starting charge level.

4. Charging power in kW – Keep in mind that the charging power can be limited by the charge outlet (cable, charging station, etc.) or the electric vehicle. Check the maximum charging power of both the vehicle and the charge outlet, and select the smaller value to calculate the charging time. See example in the table below:

 Example 1Example 2
Charging power in kW11 kW3.4 kW
Maximum charging power of the vehicle22 kW3.4 kW
Maximum charging power of the charge outlet11 kW7 kW

Congratulations! You’ve now calculated the charging time of the vehicle depending on the starting charge level and the target charge level.

If you want to go further and calculate your daily charging time or the charging time for a certain distance, please follow the next steps.

5. Distance per day – In this field, you can choose the distance you drive daily with your electric vehicle.

6. Energy consumption in kW – Insert here the energy consumption of your electric vehicle.
