Short distances

With a pure electric, you should have enough range for your daily trips, and will likely only need to charge a few times per week. With a plug-in hybrid, you can drive each way in electric mode, but you may need to charge after each trip in order to minimize fuel usage

Moderate distances

With a pure electric, you should have enough range for your daily trips, but may need to charge at each end-point. With a plug-in hybrid, you will be using a combination of electricity and fuel.

Longer distances

A pure electric can offer enough range for a long commute or weekend getaway, though you will need to coordinate charging opportunities. A plug-in hybrid will use a combination of electricity and fuel.

How long does it take to charge?

Charging times vary with charging format and vehicle type.*

* Charging times are also dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

Charging a pure electric car

To make the most of the battery life in a pure electric car, we recommend AC charging the battery up to 90 per cent capacity for typical daily driving, and preferably not letting the charge fall below 20 per cent. The car can offer plenty of range for daily trips, and you'll likely only need to top up the charge throughout the week.

40 min – 2 h

With DC fast charging (50–150kW)

8 – 10 h

With 11kW AC fast charging/wallbox


Charging a plug-in hybrid car

Regularly charging the battery to 100% is a great way to make the most of a plug-in hybrid’s electric range. With the fuel engine present, charge can get low without concern.

3 - 4 h

With 3.6kW AC fast charging/wallbox

4 - 8 h

With AC charging 220V household connector
