How Long Does it Take to Charge a Chevy Bolt?

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV driving down a highway at sunset
Environmentally-conscious Bloomington drivers have been flocking to electric vehicles (EV) like the Chevy Bolt. By switching away from conventional gasoline and using an electric engine, the Chevy Bolt cuts ways down on emissions and fuel charges. But how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt? It only takes a few minutes to fill a gas tank, so we understand why long electric car charger times might be a deal-breaker. The good news is electric car chargers are varied and easy! Find out more about electric car charger options and charging times with Suburban Chevrolet, then shop our Chevy Bolt EV inventory.

Charging Your Chevy Bolt: Three Electric Car Charger Options

The Chevy Bolt gets an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a single full charge. But how long does it take to charge a Chevy Bolt? There are three options for charging your Bolt:

Level 1 Basic: 120-Volt Portable Charger Cord

The most convenient way to charge your Chevy Bolt is with the 120-volt portable charging cord that’s included with your Chevy Bolt. It allows you to charge your car from your Minnetonka home with a three-prong outlet. While you’ll only get four miles of charge per hour, it’s easy to plug in overnight. A 12-hour charging session will give you approximately 48 miles of driving range. Since it’s recommended that you charge your vehicle daily, this is an easy way to do it.

Level 2 Fast: 240-Volt Charging Unit

You can have a Hopkins electrician equip your garage with a 240-volt outlet charging system, which will give you a 25-mile driving range per one hour of charging time. Some public charging stations offer this same rate. This is the recommended home charging option, which drops your fully-charged time down to a convenient nine and a half hours. An overnight charge will definitely give you enough power for the long Minnesota road ahead.

Level 3 Super Fast: DC Fast Charging

It’s getting easier every day to find public charging stations that work faster than any home option. You can get up to 100 miles of range in a mere 30 minutes from a DC Fast Charging station. They cost more, but they’re great for when you’re on the road and need an energy boost in a short amount of time. Find a DC Fast Charging station through your myChevrolet app. Navigate to Energy Assist and the app will find the nearest charging stations with the shortest wait times for you.
