Electric cars are now a serious alternative to conventional engines for all your driving needs, no matter the distance. And it’s never been easier to charge at home, at work or on the road.

See below for information about charging your electric car, including the different types of connector, cables and charging points available for you to use.

Three charging options

Three-pin plug

You can plug your car into charge using a regular three-pin domestic socket. Domestic plugs run at 2.3kW and will charge a ŠKODA CITIGOe iV in just over 16 hours and a ŠKODA SUPERB PHEV in around five.

Home charger

For faster charging you can install a specialised home charger, provided you have access to off-street parking. Home chargers are more powerful than a domestic socket and will charge an Enyaq iV 60 in 9.5 hours+.

Rapid charger

These are usually found in motorway services or on main roads. They use a high power AC or DC supply to get you charged up in minutes instead of hours. Incredibly, they’re capable of charging your electric vehicle to 80% in as little as 30 minutes.
