How Long Does It Take To Charge at home?

This answer depends on where and how you are charging. If you are using a level 2 home charger, it can take as little as 5 hours to go from 25% to 80% charge. However, if you are using the level 1 home charger that is provided with the vehicle, it can take more than a day if you are charging from 0%.

Our team has broken down each method of charging to help you determine the best charging solution for your EV(W).

Why Install a home charger?

When first looking at EVs, you may ask yourself if installing a home charger is worth it. And while it might seem tempting to stick with your standard 120V charger, switching to a professionally installed home charging unit can save you time AND money.

Most homes, without any upgrades, can accommodate Level 1 Chargers – i.e. chargers that draw power from a 120 V outlet. This, however, can take 48 to 60 hours to fully charge an electric vehicle.

We recommend our Volkswagen ID.4 owners add a Level 2 charger at home,⁠ which typically requires a 240-volt plug (like those used for large home appliances) or are hard-wired into your circuits.
