If you recently purchased your first electric vehicle or are currently in the market for one, it can be overwhelming to learn the basics of EV charging. That’s why Evansville Kia has created this short guide on how and where to recharge an EV in Indiana.
What does recharging involve?
Recharging an EV is as simple as plugging the car into an outlet. Every new EV comes standard with Level 1 charging equipment, which allows it to plug into a 120-volt outlet. Recharging takes the longest time with this method.
If you buy and install a Level 2 charger, you will be able to recharge in less time. A DC fast charger is the quickest option, but it is only designed for public stations, while the first two options are meant for home usage.
Where you can recharge?
You can charge an EV from the comfort of your home or at a public station. Public stations may be located at the mall, grocery store, airport, hotel, or other oft-frequented placed around Evansville. Some workplaces even offer charging to employees. And more stations are being added each year in southern Indiana to make owning an EV more convenient.
