    WHAT MATTERS IN BUYING AN EV

    Buying An Electric Car: Why Charging Rate, DC Quick-Charging Matter

    John Voelcker, October 14, 2015 (Green Car Reports)

    “…Like the better-known measurements, the rate at which a plug-in car can charge its battery is a specification you should ask about…because the charging rate directly affects the time it takes for the car to recharge the battery to its full capacity, and hence its full rated range…[I]f you're confident that you can charge your car at home every night--or at work every day--then recharge rate may not be quite so important…But it could be more important to the next buyer…And whether a car offers the ability to use DC quick-charging stations, which are totally different from conventional 240-Volt ‘Level 2’ charging, is always important…DC quick-charging generally recharges the battery to 80 percent of its capacity in around 30 minutes, as compared to several hours on Level 2 charging…[A]s a set of rules…For battery-electric cars, avoid [any onboard charging rate] below 6.6 kilowatts if you can…[and] models without DC quick-charging…[T]he charging rate is less crucial for plug-in hybrids…” click here for more
