Charging time depends on different factors such as the capacity of the vehicle battery and the power and settings of the charging station. Charging time is expected to diminish rapidly in the years to come.
Regular charge point
A charging point which allows electricity to be transferred to an electric vehicle with a power of less than or equal to 22 kW.
A charging point that allows electricity to be transferred to an electric vehicle with an output of more than 22 kW.x A very common fast charger delivers 50 kW. Development of fast charging is ongoing and nowadays there are fast chargers delivering 175 kW and more (loaders delivering 450 kW for heavy duty vehicles).
Load Balancing / Plazaxi charging
A charging plaza consists of several charging points which share a single electricity network connection.
The charging plaza allocates the available capacity to the charging points at a given time based on the demand, allowing the drivers of electric vehicles to charge their vehicles optimally. This is called load-balancing.
The charging speed is automatically adjusted as soon as it reaches maximum capacity.
