How long does it take to charge an electric car?

When you buy an electric car in California, you have your choice of three types of EV chargers. DC fast charging, also known as Level 3 charging, is the speediest way to charge your battery, and this is often available at public electric car charging stations. To find local EV charging stations in California or beyond, you can browse what's currently available in the public charging network. Level 2 chargers are also available at public charging stations, or you can have one installed at home. These charge vehicles a bit slower than DC fast chargers but are still a good option if you're leaving your electric car plugged in overnight. Level 1 EV chargers take the longest to charge fully, but you'll be able to plug them into any three-prong plug. Charging times can differ between vehicles, so don't hesitate to contact Lexus of Glendale to learn more about new Lexus EV charging times.

How much does it cost to charge an EV?

The price of electricity will vary from location to location, so make sure you check your local electric rates to get a more accurate answer. At-home charging will depend on local utility costs, but if you opt for public electric car charging stations and DC fast chargers you can look into current rates in your area.

How often do you need to charge an electric car?

This can depend based on how frequently you drive the vehicle and local conditions. Things like battery age, maintenance, terrain and temperature can all influence how often an EV needs to be charged.

How far can an electric car go on a full charge?

There isn't a single standard for how far an electric car can drive on a single charge. Many EVs can get over 300 miles, or if you want even more versatility you can opt for a Lexus Plug-In Hybrid that'll switch over to a gas engine once the battery has been depleted.
