Electric Truck Charge Times
First, here are a few things you should know about charging an electric pickup (or any EV for that matter):
- The times below are for public DC (direct current) fast chargers, like those at Tesla Superchargers, Electrify America and EVgo. In reality, about 90% of EV drivers do most of their charging at home overnight. Plug in when you get home and forget about it. Wake up to a full charge! Public charging is usually for traveling.
- It’s a waste of time to charge all the way to 100%. Beyond 80% – 90% state of charge, charging speeds slow considerably for the health of the battery.
- Charging speeds listed below are under optimal conditions, which means not too cold. Under 50 degrees, expect to add 5-15 minutes to these times.
- When towing, electric truck range drops by up to 50%. You’ll have to charge more often and plan your charging stops.
|Chevrolet||Silverado EV||Add 100 miles in 10 minutes||Expect to add 300 miles of range in 30 minutes|
|Ford||F-150 Lightning||Add 200 miles in 40 minutes||The Lightning charges to 80% quickly, but slows considerably after.|
|GMC||Hummer EV||Add 100 miles in 10 minutes||Expect to add 300 miles of range in 30 minutes|
|GMC||Sierra EV||Add 100 miles in 10 minutes||Expect to add 300 miles of range in 30 minutes|
