How long will it take to charge an electric car at a public station?
Public stations can supply energy at very different speeds. Stations offering Alternating Current (AC) charging usually operate at 7kW, which charges a plug-in hybrid vehicle from 0% to 100% in between two and four hours and an electric vehicle in between six and 10 hours.
Direct Current (DC) stations are much faster, with speeds ranging between 50kW and 350kW. It’s important to bear in mind that each Kia model operates up to a certain maximum charging speed so although you’ll be able to use any station you may not be able to take advantage of its full speed.
But remember: You’ll rarely need to charge for that long at a public station. First you’ll rarely start a charge from a completely empty battery. Second, you may not need a full battery to complete your journey. And last, an electric car’s battery takes as long to charge from 0% to 80% as it does from 80% to 100%. If you are focused on completing a journey as fast as possible, you’ll want to make sure you only charge up to 80% capacity.
