2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV Charging

If you want a sporty ride that’s environmentally friendly but also doesn’t break the bank, the Chevy Bolt is the vehicle for you. The new Chevy Bolt is not only an environmentally conscious vehicle; it also comes in at an attractive starting price affordable to many Lafayette car shoppers. How long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt? There are three different charge levels that all take a different length of time, so Christi Hubler Chevrolet has a handy guide about getting the right electric car charger.

Charging Your Chevy Bolt: Three Electric Car Charger Options

The Chevy Bolt will give you an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge. There are three options available for Brownsburg drivers that answer the question “how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt?”

Level 1 Basic: 120-Volt Portable Charger Cord

This is the first option you have and it’s also the least intensive in terms of new infrastructure. You can plug in your Chevy Bolt into the wall and charge at home. However, it gives you about 4 miles of charge per hour, meaning if you leave it charged for 12 hours, you get 48 miles of driving range.

Level 2 Fast: 240-Volt Charging Unit

The next electric car charger option is a 240-volt charging unit, which is often found at home or public stations and provides about 25 miles of charge per hour. This requires the installation of a 240-volt level 2 charger in your home by a professional electrician, but when you consider the fact that you get a full charge by leaving it overnight, it might be an advantageous option to get it installed in your home.

The average American drives about 1,000 miles a month, or a little over 30 miles a day. That means with a 240-volt charger in your house, you could get your daily charge in less time than it takes to watch a movie.

Level 3 Super Fast: DC Fast Charging

Danville drivers will typically only find level 3 chargers in public stations. This is an incredible advancement in electric car charger technology because it gives you about 100 miles of range in only 30 minutes. Getting a DC charger is a little bit extra when you buy your Bolt, but getting a week’s worth of charge in a little over an hour makes it all worth it. And with the myChevrolet mobile app, you can find the nearest DC fast charging station so you’re always in the loop.
