Charging time summary for EVs

Charge quickly and stay flexible!

What is the range of my e-car and how long does it take to charge?

The range of electric cars currently varies from 120 kilometers to around 500 kilometers on a full charge. Depending on driving style, weather conditions and age of the battery, this value can fluctuate somewhat. In particular, newer models such as the Tesla Model 3, the Mercedes-Benz EQC or the Hyundai Kona are also suitable for longer trips with their generous range.

Depending on the battery capacity and charging power, the charging time for each electric car and plug-in hybrid model varies. For you as a driver, it is important to know how much time you should allow for charging.

Our charging times overview shows the most important electric cars with their battery capacity, charging power and range. This allows you to see at a glance how much faster you charge at a charging station compared to a power outlet. Under "Find a charging station" we recommend suitable charging stations for your electric car.

How can I increase the range of my electric car?

Of course, personal driving pleasure stands and falls with the range. As an electric car driver, you are always anxious to be on the road with a sufficiently charged battery. Fortunately, a wallbox at home and the growing public charging network can give you a secure feeling. In addition, our 5 insider tips can help you get the most out of your electric car range.

¹ Charging times are rounded guideline figures, based on the assumption that the charging process is not linear
² Reference value: 2.3 kW (10, 230V) to a domestic power point
³ In Germany, charging is only permitted with special permission from the network operator

5 Tips how to increase your range

  1. Drive with foresight and accelerate sensitively. Avoid braking to a standstill. Defensive acceleration and rolling helps to keep consumption low.
  2. Adjust the (maximum) speed. The faster the speed, the greater the force of air resistance. And that drains the battery more quickly. Narrow, rolling resistance-optimized tires with aerodynamically closed rims have an equally positive effect on drag.
  3. Switch off the air conditioner. This consumes a lot of energy. For this reason, car manufacturers such as Tesla and Volkswagen are also developing new solutions for generating heat and cold for the interior of e-cars. This could provide an important lever for increasing range.

  4.  Reduce weight on your car. Although weight plays a subordinate role in driving resistance, unnecessary additional weight should still be avoided. The same applies to roof superstructures and bicycle racks.

  5. Use recuperation. Modern e-cars like the Audi e-tron recuperate very well. With a maximum recuperation power of 220 kW, almost every braking action is converted back into electrical energy.
