More EV Charging Stations Than People In The US

More EV Charging Stations Than People In The US

There is one key caveat. Many people who live in apartment buildings or condos or don’t have a parking place near an outlet for some other reason could have difficulties with an EV, and they may have the same lack of availability at work. 110 V outlets take a fairly long time (several hours) to charge an EV. Completely charging a 2013 Nissan Leaf using a 110 V outlet would take approximately 16 hours. However, with the 6.6kW charger that you can get when you buy a 2013 Leaf, and using a 240 V outlet, that is cut down to 4 hours. 110 V outlets can be very helpful to owners who have access to them, but for those without, some sort of residential charging solution or good EV charging infrastructure at work or nearby is still important.
