Type of electric vehicle
The type of vehicle you have will determine how much power your EV charger will need to provide. For example, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles have smaller batteries than traditional EVs, as they don’t run on electricity alone.
Electric vehicles have a range of battery sizes, and their capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). The difference in battery capacity can range from 17.6 kWh in the Smart EQ ForTwo, to a huge 100 kWh in the Tesla Model X and S. To work out what you need, we recommend researching the charging capacity of various chargers.
