How much does it cost to charge an electric car per hour?
If electricity is 12 cents per kWh — the national average — it would cost $3.48 to go 100 miles. Another way to calculate cost is to use the number of kilowatt-hours it takes to recharge the EV’s battery. If an EV requires 20 kWh to fully recharge and the rate is 12 cents per kWh, that’s $2.40 to fill up the car.
Can you plug an electric car into a regular outlet?
An electric car can be plugged into a typical household outlet, but a higher-voltage outlet will significantly reduce charging time. However, if you’re like me and drive a Volt on a fairly short commute and can charge overnight, a 110v outlet will make sure you have a full, or nearly full, battery in the morning.
