How Long Does it Take to Charge a Chevy Bolt?

2021 Chevrolet Bolt with people

Have you noticed an increase in electric vehicles on the roads of Lawrenceville lately? As more auto manufacturers rise to the challenge of offering EVs that can suit the needs of any driver, more commuters are trading in their gas-powered cars in favor of EV technology. If you’re thinking about making the switch too, but are hesitant because of range anxiety, the Chevy Bolt EV is an excellent option. The Bolt outdoes many of its new EV competitors with a 259-mile electric range! But how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt? It depends on what type of electric car charger you use. Find everything you need to know about charging the Bolt EV below!

Electric Car Chargers and Charge Times: Level 1, 2, and 3

You’ll have 259 miles to play with in Suwanee and beyond when the Bolt EV is fully charged. How long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt to 100%? Let’s take a look.

Level 1 Basic Charging: 120-Volt Portable Cord

The Chevy Bolt EV is standard-equipped with a portable charging cord that’s useful for home charging or if you have a charging emergency while out and about. This type of electric car charger provides 4 miles of charge for each hour of charging.

The portable cord can be plugged into any 120-volt three-prong outlet. Because this is the slowest charging option, it’s mostly recommended for weekend home charging or to keep in the car in case you have an emergency and there are no public charging stations around. Level 1 charging would net 48 miles of range after 12 hours of charging, so it’s not recommended if you’re limited on time and need to charge before a long trip—Level 2 charging would be better suited for that. 

Level 2 Fast Charging: 240-Volt Home or Public Charging Station

Level 2 electric car chargers can be installed at your home or used at public charging stations. You can get 25 miles of range for each hour of charging using this option. 

Many Johns Creek EV drivers choose to have a Level 2 electric car charger installed in their garage or driveway because it’s fast and convenient. For example, a work commute that’s 40–50 miles roundtrip could be replenished each day in just two hours. When the battery is depleted, it would take approximately 9.5 hours to charge it to 100% using the Level 2 electric car charger. 

Level 3 Super Fast Charging: Public DC Fast Charging

For the fastest charging, your Bolt EV needs to be equipped with an optional Level 3 charging port that enables you to plug in at public-only DC fast charging stations. When you use a Level 3 electric car charger, it takes only 30 minutes to get 100 miles of range or one hour to get 160 miles.

What About the Chevy Bolt EUV Charge Time?

If you’re interested in the benefits and the quick charge time of the Chevy Bolt EV, but you’re unsure whether its size will suit your driving needs, the slightly larger Chevy Bolt EUV may be the perfect alternative. You’ll have roomier passenger dimensions, but how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt EUV? Overall, the Chevy Bolt EUV charge times are almost identical to the standard Chevy Bolt charge times.

The Bolt EUV has a total electric range of 247 miles; explore these Chevy Bolt charge times to learn how long it’ll take to replenish the range:

  • Level 1 Basic: 4 miles of range per hour of charging
  • Level 2 Fast Charging: Full charge in 7 hours
  • Level 3 Super Fast Charging: Up to 95 miles in 30 minutes of charging
