Charging your Electric Vehicle

If you’re like most San Diegans who drive less than 25 miles a day, a plug-in all-electric vehicle has enough juice to get you to work and back. Recharging the battery takes around one or two hours at a charging station, or you could plug your EV into a wall outlet at home to charge overnight.

Public Charging

Depending on the manufacturer of the vehicle, there are different nozzle faces for the higher levels of charging. Some examples include:

·       BMW, Chevy and VW all have CCS combo DC fast charge nozzles

·       Most Asian manufactured brands have a CHAdeMO DC fast charge nozzle. Tesla owners can purchase an adapter
that will allow them to use this charger too

Most DC fast-charging locations will have at least one nozzle of each type.
