Frequently Asked Questions

Do all electric vehicles use the same charger?

There are three types of EV charging: slow, fast and rapid. But for the most part, electric car chargers are universal and use the same standard plug for Level 1 and Level 2 charging. However, standards for the rapid DC chargers vary based on region and manufacturer.

Are electric vehicles faster than gas vehicles?

While EVs can accelerate faster than gas-powered cars, they are often slower than gas-powered vehicles' top speeds due to their transmissions. It can take a few seconds longer to go from 0-60 mph in a gas vehicle but during sustained top speeds, gas-powered cars will beat out electric vehicles.

How fast do electric vehicles charge?

Depending on the type of battery and charger you have, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours to charge. However, a general estimate puts EVs around 8 hours to fully charge on standard chargers.

What electric vehicle has the longest range?

Currently, the Lucid Air Dream R AWD has the furthest range of any EV on the market. It can purportedly go 520 miles on a single charge. The model has also received the highest EPA-estimated range of any electric vehicle on the market today, dethroning Tesla Model S.
