How Electric Cars Work Will Blow Your Mind - Wallbox charging

Electric cars are simple, but very effective. We explain how they work

The best option for charging is a home wallbox or public charging station, which can take four to eight hours, depending on your car and the charger’s power output. Many manufacturers will offer a wallbox as an option when you buy an electric car – these can be installed at home in your garage or on your driveway to streamline the home charging process.

Some cars can use rapid chargers at service stations, shopping centres and other busy areas, too. This could cut charge times to less than half an hour.
