The new Chevy Bolt EV is one of the best in its class, but have you ever wondered, “How long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt?” Find out here, and then come into Stingray Chevrolet for a test drive!

Charging Options for Chevy Bolt

The Chevy Bolt gets an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on one single full charge. There are three options for charging your Chevy Bolt:

  1. Level 1 Basic: This first electric car charger option allows you to charge your Bolt at home, or anywhere that has a 120-volt, three-prong outlet. You get about 4 miles of charge per hour, roughly equal to the average American commute of 48 miles with a 12-hour charge. Chevy recommends that you charge your EV every day, so the battery never runs out of power as you drive around Lakeland.
  2. Level 2 Fast: The 240-volt Level 2 charger is for your home or public charging stations and provides about 25 miles per hour of charge. The Level 2 charging system needs to be professionally installed by an electrician. It’s ideal for home use as it’s the most convenient option and charges quickly. If you drive approximately 40-50 miles per day around Valrico, you could fully recharge the battery in only two hours. If you drive about 100 miles roundtrip, you could recharge the battery in about 4.5 hours. If the battery is completely drained, the Bolt charges fully again in 9.5 hours. With the level 2 charger, you can recharge your Bolt every couple of days instead of every night.
  3. Super-Fast: The DC Fast Charging option is for public stations only and provides around 100 miles of range in only 30 minutes of charge! It requires an available DC Fast Charge port. The DC Fast Chargers are available at an extra cost for Chevy Bolt owners and is helpful if you’re out and about in Brandon and need to fully charge your battery.
