For the 2019 Chevy Volt, Chevy has doubled the charge throughput and sliced the time it takes to fully recharge a Volt in half, to 2.3 hours, using a 240V charger. This is twice as fast as the 2016–2017 models, rising from 3.6kW to 7.2kW (a jump from 16 amps to 32 amps).
Only need 4.5 hours to charge an empty condition of Chevy Volt to the full conditions. The required current for charging voltage 240 Volts is amount 20 Amperes. Subsequent charging time will also be influenced by the room temperature.
Charging Your Chevy Volt at Home. Charging a plug-in hybrid at home is not much different from charging your cell phone or laptop. Just plug the cord that comes with the car into a regular wall outlet to add about 4 miles of Range Per Hour. It will take about 12 hours to recharge your Chevy Volt this way.
It’s still not good but a full chevy Volt charge is more like 12 Kwh. The battery doesn’t charge the full way. So $.25 *12 = $3 + $1.25 = $4.25 to fully charge for 37 or so miles.
The Chevy Volt is incredibly easy to own. You never have to charge the battery, but each time you do, you save money on gas. It takes me about 15 seconds to grab the cord and plug it in at home in ...
The Chevy Bolt EV accepts the universal connector on every standard Level 2 charging station, which adds about 25 miles of Range Per Hour. It takes just a few seconds to plug in, then you can go about your day (or night) while the Bolt EV charges.
Whoa, the Chevy Bolt Will Actually Be Pretty Quick. Chevy says the all-electric hatchback will do 0-60 in less than seven seconds, thanks to 266 lb-ft of torque.
Assuming a 80% charging efficiency it would take 23 KWH to charge it completely. The cost depends on the rate you pay for electricity. I pay about 20 cents per KWH, I think the national range is about 10 to 20 cents per KWH. So your Volt would take $2.30 to $4.60 to charge completely. That’s alleged to take you 53 miles.
Average miles per charge is 40, if you drive more aggressive (which is fun to do in the volt) or must have the AC blasting or heat the car to 80 degrees in the winter then expect to get around 30miles per charge, normal driving (no more than 10 miles over the speed limit), with AC in eco mode (still comfortable) you should reach 40 miles, unless you are running just on the highway at over 65 mph (in that case expect to get in low 30s) the Volt does best off highway.
