The growing popularity of hybrid vehicles has Peachtree City drivers wondering how to charge a hybrid car battery. This question is understandable if you’re debating making the switch from traditional gas-powered models for more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles. With the Butler Lexus of South Atlanta service center, you’ll learn that how to charge a hybrid car depends on whether you have a traditional hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or fully electric vehicle.
Charging a hybrid car battery differs from how you’d charge a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) or fully electric vehicle (EV). Understanding the difference in charging styles will help you see how they fit into your Fayetteville lifestyle. So, let’s see how to charge a hybrid car, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicle:
Road trips with a PHEV have the advantage of also running on gas power, but if you’re interested in adding a PHEV model to your Newnan commute, there are a couple of ways for how to charge a hybrid car battery:
With the various battery designs and sizes, you’ll find charging times differ depending on your plug-in or EV model. Typically, smaller plug-in hybrid batteries can recharge in about 3 hours at a 120V outlet, while a 240V charging station takes about 1.5 hours. Since EVs have larger batteries, a 120V charging station can take over 20 hours to recharge the model, and between 4-8 hours using a 240V charger. However, EV models also have the advantage of built-in fast charging that allows you to recharge up to 80% in about 20 minutes.
